2045 Comprehensive Plan

The Planning Department has begun to update the county’s current comprehensive plan (2026 Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009). This important document will provide the framework for how the county will grow and develop over the next 20 years. We are asking you to be involved in “HenricoNext”, the public engagement component to help create a cohesive, countywide vision for Henrico in 2045. To begin shaping that vision, residents are encouraged to provide feedback on a host of issues ahead of community meetings that will be scheduled next year. To sign-up for future updates or submit comments, please visit www.henriconext.us.

Two surveys will also be conducted by the Survey and Evaluation Research Laboratory at Virginia Commonwealth University and Clarion Associates. The first, a community focused survey, will be sent to 5,000 residents – 1,000 from each magisterial district. A second survey will ask 4,000 residents – 800 from each district, about needs in recreation and parks. Participants have been randomly selected to ensure statistically valid results. Letters with link to the survey will be sent in early to mid-September.

Comments or questions about the Plan Update can be directed to the Planning Department at 804.501.4602 or compplan@henrico.us.
