The Chesterfield Planning Commission has approved a major church expansion near Courthouse Road and Route 288.
According to Wednesday's Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Southside Church of the Nazarene will be allowed to build athletic fields, office buildings, and even apartments.
Neighbors bordering the property on Courthouse Road had expressed concerns about lighting and noise, but the paper reports that no one came out to Tuesday night's county planning meeting to oppose the project.
