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 residents and interested stakeholders to become involved in “HenricoNext”, a process to create a cohesive, countywide vision for Henrico in 2045.

For more information on the project, details regarding upcoming listening sessions scheduled for July and August 2024, or to sign-up for future updates, please visit www.henriconext.us.
