Planning and Coordination Council Discusses Joint Business
Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the University of Virginia are all so closely intertwined, it's possible to be standing somewhere and not even know which jurisdiction you're in. Thursday representatives from all three got together to talk about joint business.
The Planning and Coordination Council, which has representatives from Charlottesville, Albemarle, and UVA, had its quarterly meeting Thursday. The main topic of discussion was how all three entities can work together towards success in business, development, and serving the community.
Each district representative gave a presentation on why they should work together towards economic development. They say Charlottesville, Albemarle, and UVA all have a stable financial outlook, competitive development, and great entertainment, and that they should market themselves together to prospective businesses.
Lee Catlin with Albemarle County said, "It's important for us to have a unified message as a shared community, when we see areas that are really successful, they're regions that have pulled their resources and pulled their attributes to create jobs for their citizens and to increase their tax base."
Other things on the agenda included a discussion on the region's response to the recent storms, and an update of the "Many Plans, One Community" project.
The next joint meeting will be held on Thursday, November 15.
