The Community Character Chapter addresses the less tangible dimensions of growth and development known as community character. Community character takes land use recommendations and moves beyond the concept of “where” and “how much” and addresses the “quality” of the land use.Community character can be defined as the combined effect of the built, natural, historic, and social features within a neighborhood. It encompasses the physical and social attributes that make one neighborhood different from another. This chapter provides guidance for creating appropriate community character in Henrico County.
