Henrico County conducted a small area study for the Westwood area, which is generally located between West Broad Street, Staples Mill Road, and CSX Railway’s Acca Yard. The purpose of this process was to examine potential redevelopment opportunities, and determine any constraints for development within the study area. The Board of Supervisors initiated potential 2026 Comprehensive Plan and zoning ordinance amendments at their September 25, 2018 meeting. Department of Planning Staff presented the study and potential amendments to the Planning Commission at a public hearing on November 8, 2018. The Board of Supervisors approved the amendments after a public hearing on December 11, 2018. A copy of the approved study, Comprehensive Plan amendment, and zoning ordinance revision creating the Westwood Redevelopment Overlay District can be found by following the link below.
