Charlottesville Looking for Public's Input on City's Comprehensive Plan
The city of Charlottesville is looking for your input to help to 'Plan Charlottesville.' From traffic to public parks, the city wants to hear its residents. Thursday night is the last time the public will be able to comment on the comprehensive plan before the final, updated draft is presented in April.
Those who have been working on the comprehensive plan are having one-on-one conversations tonight about their specific chapters, including areas like housing, the economy and the environment.
Land use is also something that has received the most attention so far. "We've received a lot of comments on the land use chapter and our last update in 2007 we didn't spend a lot of time on that. Transportation and parks and things people really care about in the community," said Missy Creasy of Plan Charlottesville.
The final draft will be presented at a formal public hearing sometime in April. The group hopes to have the updated plan adopted by the end of the year.
The event is at the Water Street Center and will run until 7 p.m.
