A. R. Goodwin, a resident of the Varina District, expressed concerns regarding the threat of land consumption and sprawl to the County’s remaining historic resources and the need for protection of these resources in the County’s comprehensive planning process. Mrs. Goodwin referred to a study she undertook during the past three years of the recent history of historic preservation policy in Henrico in which she included a list of historical sites and structures reported lost as of 2006. She commented that the County Planning Department’s comprehensive plan outreach methods since 2004 have not sufficiently promoted public knowledge of the comprehensive plan and have resulted in limited citizen input.
