From WRIC:

A 28-home development on two scraps of leftover land in Western Henrico are struggling to gain approval from the Board of Supervisors, as the case was deferred amid opposition from residents.

The planned development would add 28 homes to two parcels on either side of John Rolfe Parkway. The two parcels, sandwiched between John Rolfe Parkway and the sprawling suburbs that surround them, are currently zoned for agriculture – a holdover from the area’s rural past.
