Albemarle Planning Commission Holds Hearing on Updated Plan

Posted: Updated:

Planners are working on finalizing Albemarle County's comprehensive plan.

Tuesday night the planning commission held a public hearing about the updated plan. Some changes include increasing rural area use and improving opportunities for employment.

The Monticello viewshed, which protects the view from Thomas Jefferson's hilltop home, is also part of the updated plan.

Some who spoke out say they want to see some more changes made before anything is finalized.

"I don't feel like any input by any concerned private property owner was ever reflected in anything that is in any of the documents at all. None of our concerns were every really addressed," said Audrey Welborn, who lives in Albemarle. 

The planning commission will take the hearing's feedback into consideration before it submits a final plan to the Board of Supervisors.
