Regional Housing Framework Summary
Imagine, for a moment, what the region might look like in 20 years under a new housing framework. It would mean nationally-recognized manufacturing and technology businesses investing in new facilities along the I-95 corridor in Henrico and Hanover Counties, where thousands of employees can walk or commute less than five minutes to work. A revitalized Route 1 corridor in Chesterfield County with homes and other development designed to enhance the quality of life for all residents. Or a Richmond Public School system with more racial equity, where citizens of all socio-economic backgrounds have housing access across all nine Council districts. In Ashland, it could look like new, two-story projects along England Street and Railroad Avenue with first floor commercial or retail and second-story apartments or condominiums.
