From Richmond BizSense:

A delayed vote Monday has put the city and Bon Secours Richmond at risk of missing an agreed-upon July 1 deadline to decide the fate of the former Westhampton School property — and it’s unclear what the consequences could be.

The Richmond Planning Commission voted Monday to hold off its recommendation on the health system’s request to rezone the property at Patterson and Libbie avenues. Bon Secours needs the rezoning to build a three-story, 55,000-square-foot medical office building on a parcel adjacent to the existing school structure and allow developers to pitch ideas for the rest of the site.

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Tom Leonard’s Farmer’s Market, which has operated in western Henrico County since 2004, is getting bigger.

The 15,000-square-foot market will nearly double in size when the store expansion project is completed later this year, owner Tom Leonard said.

Construction should begin late in the spring.

The expansion will take over the tented area to the left of the store – where pumpkins and Christmas trees are typically sold.

The added space will enable the market, off Tom Leonard Drive, to expand and move its bakery and deli departments into the new space. The bakery will be able to make fresh-boiled bagels – “the way they do them in New York,” Leonard said.
