Besides attempting to reach optimal population sizes, the county will also work to keep its districts “contiguous and compact, with clearly defined and observable boundaries,” according to a county news release,” and avoiding splitting its 91 voting precincts.
The Three Chopt District saw fast growth for the western part of Henrico. According to the plan, Three Chopt’s new population size would be 68,889 after giving away residents to both Brookland and Tuckahoe. Without moving residents, Three Chopt would be roughly 8,000 residents over the ideal population size.
Tuckahoe’s population would be 67,757 residents after adding the Three Chopt areas near Regency Square mall located off North Parham Road and Henrico’s Doctor Hospital located off Skipwith Road.
Brookland would also receive parts of Three Chopt and also areas of Glen Allen from Fairfield. Approximately 68,744 residents would live in Brookland.
As Fairfield is expected to give land to Brookland, it would also receive the areas of Lakeside from Brookland. Fairfield’s new population would become 64,722 residents, with a decrease of Black residents from 61.27% to 57.34% of its overall population.
