Charlottesville Planning Commission to Review Land Use Map
Charlottesville is evolving, and the city planning commission is changing the way it looks at land use. At a work session Tuesday night, the commission will consider revisions to the 2040 Land Use Map.
This is the first time since the 1990s planners have worked to overhaul land use in the comprehensive plan. One proposed change suggests redefining the way the city views industrial areas, to attract and include new business.
"A lot of the things that used to be industry kinds of things are moving more toward a business and technology and light manufacturing. And a lot of businesses that you wouldn't know were necessarily there," Charlottesville Planning Manager Missy Creasy said.
The land use plan merely suggests future types of development. Only city council can change zoning laws. There will be three community meetings in October and November to gauge community interest and support for the revised land use plan. Click here for more information.
