Planning Commission to hold Oct. 18 public hearing on Route 5 Corridor Study

Meeting at New Bridge Learning Center was rescheduled due to Tropical Storm Michael

The Henrico County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Thursday, Oct. 18 on the draft Route 5 Corridor Study, following a postponement caused by Tropical Storm Michael.

The study is evaluating the character of the Route 5 area and recommending guidelines for use in future review of development proposals, while integrating and respecting the existing agricultural, residential and commercial development along the corridor.

The public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the New Bridge Learning Center, 5915 Nine Mile Road. The location, near Route 5 in eastern Henrico, is intended to promote public participation in and discussion of the study.

The Planning Commission will open the public hearing on the Route 5 Corridor Study immediately following its consideration of rezoning and provisional use permit cases on the agenda.

The meeting was originally scheduled for Oct. 11 but was postponed due to inclement weather from Tropical Storm Michael.
