Hanover County Master Plan

Hanover County, Hanover, Virginia

Moseley Architects developed a long-range master plan for the Hanover County, Virginia, Government Center. A suburb of Richmond, the county has seen significant population growth and development that has generated the corresponding need for additional county staff and services, and growth is expected to continue. The master planning effort was undertaken to determine how best to accommodate past growth in county government and plan effectively for the future. The process began with a detailed analysis of current and future staffing and space needs for all county government functions. Multiple alternative master plan strategies were then evaluated. The final master plan calls for expansion of the public safety building, a new courts building, a new administrative office building, as well as reconfigured site access, development of new outdoor green space, and additional parking.
