How Does Local Government Work? Albemarle County’s Comp Plan
May 15 @ 18:45 - 21:00
Come learn about our how Albemarle County’s Comprehensive Plan works. Really. It’s going to be fun.
Gathering in the common area of Piedmont Place at 6:45, conversation starts at 7pm sharp, and we’ll aim to end no later than 8:15 or 8:30.
Lee Cilimberg, one of the most knowledgeable about Albemarle County Government people I know, and Sean Tubbs of Charlottesville Tomorrow, someone who knows more about local government intricacies and ways than I’ll ever know, and Wayne Cilimberg, former Director of Planning at Albemarle County.
The Comprehensive Plan is Albemarle County’s most important document regarding growth, development and change. It establishes government policy to help guide public and private activities as they relate to land use and resource utilization. It is the basis for land development regulations and decisions (rezonings, special use permits), capital improvements (public projects such as schools, parks, libraries), transportation, environmental and historic resource protection initiatives, new county programs and decisions on the distribution of county budget dollars to a multitude of programs and agencies.
