Population and Geography based on 2020 census
This plan splits Fairfax County's Woodburn precinct (#717) in half and separates our residents from local FCPS schools, our nearest post office, and our member of Congress who has known our neighborhood for decades.
This map aptly represents the rural, geographic, and ideologically uniform nature of the 1st District. The largely exurban and beyond nature of the 7th District is more in line with the northern Virginia cultural and regional concerns.

I have no idea what is driving the commission to include the Peninsula in the southside Hampton Roads maps. Hampton and Newport News can anchor a Peninsula based district while Norfolk and VB can anchor one on this side of the HRBT. Accomack to James City County are not communities of interest!
As a Bon Air resident, this map does not honor communities of interest. To illustrate this point, if I drive 1 mile to my local Trader Joe's, I have crossed from CD 5 to CD 4. If I drive 2 miles in the other direction to my local Walmart or Lowe's, I go from proposed CD 5 to proposed CD 4. If I go just over the Huguenot Bridge for an appointment at the Eye Institute, I've gone from CD 5, through CD 4, to CD 1. And of course my current district is CD 7. Dividing up communities of interest like the Western and Southwestern suburbs of Richmond is what this Commission was supposed to eliminate. Do better.
Not a good map because it splits the Richmond suburbs three ways again. There should be a competitive 7th district to give a voice to the voters hear and not deprive them of adequate representation.
Albemarle-Charlottesville has nothing in common with Valley communities and should instead be a part of a Central Virginia district for Piedmont communities. The 6th District should include more Valley counties further north, as it does now.

Central Virginia actually exists. But, you would never know it from this map. Charlottesville-Albemarle needs to be included with other Central Virginia counties to it's East. It should not be lumped in with the Counties over the mountain or Counties to it's North. There are genuine communities of interest between Charlottesville-Albemarle and Fluvanna, Louisa and the I-64 corridor to the East. These communities depend of Charlottesville-Albemarle for their jobs, college education, healthcare, news media reporting and shopping. To separate us from that is to isolate us from the community of interest that we are completely dependent on and isolates us from news media for the bulk of the 5th district out of our broadcast viewing area.
