The Goochland County Board of Supervisors voted to deny the Centerville Small Area Plan during their October 4th public hearing.
During the Wednesday night public hearing, Timmons Group presented a statistical analysis on the amendments received during the most recent citizen input period. It became apparent that there was no clear consensus on how to proceed. Following the presentation and public comment period, the Goochland County Board of Supervisors voted to deny the Centerville Small Area Plan, thus ending that planning process. The full report presented to the Board of Supervisors is available at www.goochlandva.us/villageplans2022.
The Small Area Plan was started in response to the significant growth pressures the County is experiencing, especially in the Centerville area. The County’s Comprehensive Plan addresses Centerville at a high level, however this plan was intended to provide guiding principles for transportation, land use, and community character.
All information compiled during this planning process, including citizen feedback received during the amendment process, will be archived, and kept on file.
County staff have been directed to move on to other projects that had been deferred during the Small Area Plan process, which started in February of 2022. The incoming Board of Supervisors, who will take office in January 2024, will decide when and how to move forward with planning efforts for the Centerville area.
