Other than a question about one tag, GEOID, the .osm file looks very good.

If the GEOID is a persistent id from the city, I would recommend using
something like addr:id=GEOID (assuming the GEOID was derived from the
address id.)

When you import, it is helpful to use the address tags validator Map Paint
Style in JOSM to catch mismatch between street names and addr:street names.

In the wiki you said you were going to enlist the help of Virginia's
mappers. Can you explain how you plan to break the work up? The wiki
mentioned block groups. Are you going to use the Tasking Manager?
