Updated

THE HENRICO COUNTY PLANNING COMMISSION WILL HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING IN THE BOARD ROOM OF THE COUNTY ADMINISTRATION BUILDING IN THE GOVERNMENT CENTER AT PARHAM AND HUNGARY SPRING ROADS, 7:00 P.M., THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2021 TO CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING: Revisions to the draft ordinance titled "ORDINANCE To Enact a New Zoning Ordinance by Repealing Chapter 24 of the Code of the County of Henrico Titled 'Zoning' and Replacing It with a New Chapter 24 Titled 'Zoning'" which the Planning Commission recommended to the Board of Supervisors on February 25, 2021. The following revisions would be made to the previously recommended draft for consideration by the Board of Supervisors. 1. Office/Service-2 District Rezoning. Because the previously recommended draft would eliminate the O/S-2, Office/Service-2 District, the proposed revision recommends rezoning the only property currently zoned O/S-2 to O/S, Office Service District. This property is located at 7986 Villa Park Drive and is identified as GPIN 781-754-0930. That property would be subject to the dimensional standards and permitted uses of the O/S District in the previously recommended draft, including minimum lot area of one acre, minimum lot width of 100 feet, maximum height of 110 feet, front yard setback of 40 feet, side yard setback of 20 feet, and rear yard setback of 40 feet. The 2026 Comprehensive Plan recommends Office/Service. 2. Planned Industrial District Rezoning. Because the previously recommended draft would eliminate the PMD, Planned Industrial District, the proposed revision recommends rezoning one property currently zoned PMD, Planned Industrial District to M-1, Light Industrial District. This property is located at 4801 Audubon Drive and is identified as GPIN 816-716-0530. That property would be subject to the dimensional standards and permitted uses of the M-1 District in the previously recommended draft, including maximum height of 110 feet, front yard setback of 25 feet, side yard setback of zero or 15 feet, and rear yard setback of 30 feet. The 2026 Comprehensive Plan recommends Planned Industry. The site is in the Airport Safety Overlay District. 3. Glen Allen Overlay District. This revision would create the Glen Allen Overlay District, the boundaries of which are shown on the map below. The following would be prohibited: attention-getting devices, outside speakers, adult businesses, drive-through windows, outdoor display of retail products after hours, and outdoor vending machines. The following would be allowed only by provisional use permit: retail uses over 5,000 square feet, automotive filling stations with more than four pumps, industrial uses, hours of service between 12:00 midnight and 6:00 am, and buildings over 25 feet in height. A restaurant would be permitted as an accessory use to a bed and breakfast home. Streetscape buffers, enhanced transitional buffers, and additional screening would be required. Signs in streetscape buffers would be limited to 20 square feet in area and six feet in height, and changeable messages would be regulated. Parking lots would be limited to the side and rear yard except for one row of parking in the front yard; additional landscaping would be required, and alternative paving materials would be allowed. The Planning Director would be authorized to approve deviations from these requirements where full compliance would be impractical due to topography, configuration, or other unique circumstances of the site. 4. Short Pump Town Center Area Subdistrict. The previously recommended draft would establish a new FBA-O Form-Based Alternative Overlay District. This revision would create a fifth subdistrict within the FBA-O Form-Based Alternative Overlay District called the Short Pump Town Center Area subdistrict. The subdistrict's boundaries are shown on the map below. The FBA-O Overlay District would allow development within the overlay district in accordance with either (i) the underlying zoning requirements and standards for the properties within the district or (ii) upon application of the property owner and approval of a plan of development or administrative site plan, and the modified zoning requirements and standards set by the previously recommended draft for the overlay district. The modified zoning requirements and standards address: (1) building dimensions and locations, and design elements for the fronts of buildings, (2) street, alley, and sidewalk designs, locations, required connections, the termination of vistas, and the provision of lights and trees along those rights-of-way, (3) standards for the provision of parking, including, for example, the number of spaces and the location of parking, (4) the types of uses allowed and the locations where those uses are allowed, (5) the required provision of civic open spaces and the design of those spaces, including, for example, parks, plazas, gardens, and squares, (6) standards for automobile filling stations and drive-throughs, and (7) standards for signage and exterior lighting. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Planning Commission may recommend the revisions for approval, denial, or changes.
