Charlottesville Hires Consultant to Evaluate City Roads

Posted: Updated:

The city of Charlottesville is relying on a consultant to help plan a more pedestrian-friendly design for the city's roads. The context sensitive street resolution, passed last week by City Council, lets councilors spend up to $50,000 on design services.

Counselor Kathy Galvin says this may be a sign the city needs to hire a full-time urban planner.

"Perhaps we need more in-house capability that we currently don't have, but we've got to make sure we have the right skill sets at the table or else we're not going to see a positive change,” said Galvin.

The consultant will gather community input as to what roads are in most need of redevelopment. Galvin says they hope to have a plan drawn up by the end of the year.
