Police have begun to reopen the Downtown Mall in order to make Monday a normal day for businesses.

As of Sunday night, some of the barricades along the Downtown Mall side streets have been removed.

The barrier separating the mall from the Sprint Pavilion has also been taken down and police stopped checking bags for the previously prohibited items.

Many Charlottesville and Albemarle residents have been discussing what will follow this weekend of unrest. “Things always change. I think business will be pretty much as usual, but hopefully a conversation continues which should've been a weekend of education and gathering,” said Michael Green.

Some of the barriers will remain in place until early Monday morning.

All of the barricades are expected to be removed by 6 a.m. Monday.
