Please don't put any part of Chesterfield County in with Richmond City. The interests of the city vs the county are not aligned. Richmond could easily be its own district without including the county.
Overall this is a much better map plan than many of the alternatives. The Hampton Roads area in particular is extremely well drawn, in particular the Virginia Beach/Norfolk areas.
Nokesville should be in the same district as Bristow. It shares the county boundary with Dale City but not much else. These two communities of interest abut each other for a great deal of their borders.
I like that this map keeps Tyson's Corner intact and groups it together with other communities in the Dulles Technology Corridor.
I am concerned that communities of similarity are not being considered with the eastern part of Fluvanna. Currently, our house district is divided by James Madison Highway and that works well. Much of the eastern half of Fluvanna is more associated with Louisa and Goochland, we share post offices in Kents Store and Columbia, we often share emergency services, we frequent Zions Crossroads, Louisa and Goochland Courthouse because they are much closer than Charlottesville or even western Fluvanna. I know that the commission does not want to divide counties, but this is one of the several cases that I see on the map that I believe would make good sense and be more representative of my community. Thank you.
I like this map. Much more compact. I would like it better if Albemarle district could be moved more north including Greene County. And not include Buckingham, which doesn't share much with Albemarle and Charlottesville.
This is not bad, but Districts 20. 21. 22, and 23 vary in population from 215,249 to 224,437. The smallest, 20, is 51% Black and the largest, 23, is 54% White. I think a little tweaking of the lines where these four districts come close to each other could equalize populations while preserving the Black majority district.
This is the most sensible map I have seen for the Senate district that will encompass my portion of Henrico County - rather than carve out part of a highly suburban county and pair it with fully rural communities, SD30 would now encompass all of western Henrico County and a more suburban part of the City of Richmond.
This map correctly places residents of the City of Fredericksburg together with residents of Stafford County and portions of Spotsylvania County. This is a good fit for a community of interest because these localities collaborate on regional projects and issues of mutual interest. As such, it is important that candidates for this office represent such local concerns.

This district aligns the interests of the citizens of Fredericksburg with citizens of Stafford County and of a portion of Spotsylvania County. Such an arrangement assures that regional issues of mutual interest to these localities are considered and promoted by candidates seeking to represent this polity.
I like that this map keeps the City of Fredericksburg with the rest of the larger Stafford and northern Spotsylvania community of interest. This area shares many concerns, especially commuting on 95 and VRE, residential and commercial development, and childhood and adult education. Including large rural areas in the same district as Fredericksburg would not serve anyone well.
As someone who works in Stafford VA and lives in downtown Fredericksburg, this version of the district map makes the most sense. The region as drawn now encompasses a group of people with the same community interests, development growth ideas, and issues (such as 95 corridor traffic ). This is an excellent proposed district.

I like this District. The City of Fredericksburg is in. one district with Stafford and Spotsylvania. It keeps together a community of interest. And it is important that the City doesn't get lumped into a rural district.
This district unifies the community of interest. This area is economically linked and has many common concerns.
This is a good looking district that keeps the Fredericksburg area in one district which has both cultural and economic shared interests. It is critical that the City of Fredericksburg is no longer lumped into a rural district where our transportation and school needs are not being met due to representation coming from more rural parts of the state. Northern Spotsylvania considers themselves as part of "Fredericksburg" culturally - I grew up in that part of the district.
I approve of this grouping for SD-31, which has received overwhelming public comment across numerous maps to remain with these four counties and the city of Charlottesville.
As I have mentioned in previous versions, Virginia Code states that a district need to be contiguous without using a body of water to do so. I would encourage the map drawers to reconfigure SD-26 and SD-28 to include more of Shockoe in SD-26 in order to provide transportation access (Mayo Bridge, I-95, or one further upstream) from the East End to the remainder of the district. To correct population deviation, move portions of Chesterfield or portions of Richmond north of Midlothian turnpike in to SD-28.
I really like how this divides the Richmond area that is fair both politically and in terms of minority districts.
I think this is a great division of the Hampton Roads region in order to ensure fair minority representation and competitive districts.
I really like how this district is drawn because it keeps commuter communities of interest together.
This district really should be Roanoke, Blacksburg, and Radford. The way it is currently drawn it includes unrelated rural and urban communities.
This looks good. It reflects that Stafford-Fredericksburg-Spotsylvania are a community of interest with the same cultural and economic ties. That said, I would argue that more of Spotsylvania should be included in this map. Salem District, which is bordered by Gordon Road, Smith Station Road, Old Leavells Road/Leavells Road, Harrison Road, and Route 3 is part of that same community of interest. Its residents work, shop, and worship primarily in Fredericksburg City. I've attached a map of the district for your convenience.
Looking good for Stafford County and Fredericksburg but please include a little bit more in northern Spotsylvania - at least past the mall on Route 3 - perhaps to Salem Church Rd.?
Good, competitive district centered on Williamsburg and Yorktown areas, which are a community of interest. As for District 17, it will be a GOP-leaning district which suits the interests of its many rural counties. Portion of James City County is needed there to get enough population and it is a more conservative part of the county.
