Henrico County will hold a design charrette Jan. 28-Feb. 1 to present ideas and receive public input on study areas in western and central Henrico.
A charrette is an intensive planning session that encourages public participation and facilitates collaboration between residents and designers on a vision for development. Participants can share ideas and will have the opportunity to provide immediate feedback to designers.
Areas to be studied are a section of business properties generally located within a half-mile of the intersection of Parham Road and West Broad Street; and the Brookfield Office Park and adjacent residential properties, generally bounded by West Broad, Dickens and Bethlehem roads, and Interstate 64. The schedule and locations for the charrette are:
- Kickoff and hands-on design session: Monday, Jan. 28, 6-9 p.m.; Henrico Training Center, 7701 E. Parham Road.
- Open design studio: Tuesday, Jan. 29 through Thursday, Jan. 31, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Libbie Mill Library, large meeting room, 2100 Libbie Lake East St.
