On the docket is a conditional-use permit request by Beldale Solar to allow the construction of a 350-acre solar farm on a nearly 3,000 acre property in the northwestern part of the county.

Willow Lawn area apartments, Brook Road apartments on agenda

Henrico supervisors meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. Full agenda here.

Business includes a series of requests for Thalhimer Realty Partners and Crenshaw Realty’s plan to replace several office buildings near Willow Lawn with two seven-story apartment buildings totaling 585 units. A portion of the plan that was to involve two buildings at 1904 and 1910 Byrd Ave. has been withdrawn from the requests.

Middleburg Real Estate Partners LLC seeks approvals to replace the Knights Inn motel at 9002 Brook Road with more than 300 apartments and townhomes and a commercial space fronting Brook.

A rezoning request from Markel | Eagle for an 80-home subdivision on 46 acres southwest of Pouncey Tract Road and Wyndham West Drive is being deferred to the July 12 meeting, as is a request from Atlantic Crossing LLC to rezone 530 acres southeast of the Interstate 64-295 interchange for an industrial development.

Henrico ponders personal property tax relief to offset rising vehicle values

Henrico supervisors will consider a personal property tax relief proposal that would give residents an additional 60 days to make their first payments and provide a credit on year-end bills to offset higher-than-expected vehicle values.

With the credits, the county would provide an effective 52-cent reduction to the personal property tax rate for 2022, based on current estimates. The board will vote Tuesday on an emergency ordinance that would delay by two months — from June 6 to Aug. 5 — the due date for the first installment of all personal property taxes without penalties or interest.

More info on the proposal is available on the county’s website.
