City Council meetings Monday
Richmond City Council meets Monday at 10 a.m. for a work session on the proposed Navy Hill development, at 4 p.m. for an informal meeting and at 6 p.m. in regular session.

Hild properties up for rezoning
City Council’s regular meeting agenda includes a request from Laura Dyer Hild, who with husband Michael Hild runs real estate firm Church Hill Ventures, to rezone 17 properties in the Swansboro neighborhood to accommodate mixed-use residential and commercial development through the city’s TOD-1 and B-7 zoning designations. The rezoning would accommodate a mix of infill development including multifamily residential, retail, office, restaurant and brewery/distillery.
The sites, which total about 4.3 acres, include the former Siegel’s Supermarket building and surrounding 2.4-acre property at 2005 Hull St. and are assembled over a two-block stretch bounded by West 21st, West 19th, Bainbridge and Hull streets. City planning staff supports the rezoning, and the Planning Commission recommends approval.
Hearing Wednesday on Navy Hill rezonings
The city Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing on items related to the Navy Hill project for Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. The hearing will be held in council chambers at City Hall. The items relate to applications filed in July to rezone 17 properties that make up the project area. Full agenda here.
Planning meeting in Chesterfield; Courthouse Landing project deferred
The Chesterfield Planning Commission meets Tuesday at 6 p.m. Public hearing items include a request from Chester Road Group to rezone nearly 7 acres northwest of Chester and West Hundred roads for a multifamily development. A request for Courthouse Landing, a proposed mixed-use development on 122 acres southeast of Route 288 and Iron Bridge Road, is being deferred to the
commission’s Nov. 11 meeting. Full agenda here.
Ukrop’s food hall approved near former store site
Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods received approval from Henrico supervisors to develop a food hall on 2.8 acres northeast of Patterson Avenue and Horsepen Road. The site is across Patterson from the location of a former Ukrop’s grocery store, later a Martin’s, that is being converted to a Publix in the Village Shopping Center.
An existing church sanctuary on the food hall site would be converted to create the facility with commercial, catering and office uses. Roth Jackson attorney Andrew Condlin represented Ukrop’s in its application. Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams provided civil and site engineering.
