Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances Update

Henrico County is updating the zoning and subdivision ordinances. Public participation has been a vital part of this process. The Planning Commission held a series of eight work sessions in 2020, followed by two public hearings in 2021. The Board of Supervisors held a work session on March 18, 2021, and a public hearing on June 8, 2021. The Board deferred action on the new ordinances to June 22, 2021.

The final drafts of the proposed ordinances are available here:
