Friends of Bryan Park against rezoning of development near Bryan Park

Decision on the deferment is scheduled for March 13th.

Friends of Bryan Park are now providing a link (pdf) to the Henrico Planning Department’s report for Henrico’s Planning Commission regarding the rezoning request by Cadmus (Cenveo) and Wilton. The rezoning request is summed up very well in the image above.

The area inside the red lines will need to be rezoned if townhouses are to be built on it. The blue area was planned in the 1920′s and is “grand-fathered in,” allowing for a very high density subdivision.

The  map above shows plans for development on what has always been a quiet, natural area of 104 year old Bryan Park.  A huge number of Henrico County’s residents use Bryan Park,  but Henrico does not pay a dime to support or care for it.  Trash flows into the park from Upham Brook and Jordan’s Branch in Henrico County, never stopping.  Sediment from the same brooks clog the upper pond.  This may be Henrico’s next assault on this much loved park, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. (To those who live in Henrico and volunteer in the park, thank you!)

This case is scheduled to be heard on March 13, at 7:00 PM but a deferment has been requested and will be granted or denied on at the March 13th meeting. If the deferment is granted action on the request would be moved to April 10th.
