Week Ahead for April 11, 2022: Charlottesville PC to review changes to 209 Maury Avenue; Albemarle PC to review changes to Albemarle Business Campus project

Neither the Albemarle Board of Supervisors nor the Charlottesville City Council have substantive meetings this week, but there is no shortage of planning activity across the six localities covered by this weekly newsletter.

Week Ahead for April 4, 2022: Charlottesville City Council to take final vote on Grove Street rezoning; Pippin Hill seeks expansion of Crossroads Tavern in North Garden

Another week, another month, and another full roster of government meetings in and around Charlottesville. Every week this newsletter seeks to make sure as many people as possible know what’s coming up and to help me sort through what I’ll be covering.

Week Ahead for March 28, 2022: Budget season continues with real estate tax increase likely in Charlottesville

No week is ever slow in local government, but this one appears to be a lot less intense. It’s the final week of a month, and the beginning of a new month and a new quarter. After an intense March, this is a good week to try to catch up. There are no meetings in Greene County or Louisa County this week, and only one in Fluvanna. The word of the week remains budget.

Week Ahead for March 14, 2022: Budget season continues with work sessions in Albemarle, Charlottesville, Fluvanna and Nelson; Greene PC to consider Lydia Mountain Lodge expansion

Make sure your clock is correct so that you don’t miss any of the exciting meetings coming up this week in local and regional government. It’s another week filled with opportunities to learn more about what’s coming up in the area.

Week Ahead for March 7, 2022: Budget season begins in earnest; Charlottesville PC to revisit 28 unit development south of UVA

The keyword for this week is “budget” with four out of the six jurisdictions holding meetings about their key financial documents. Charlottesville residents will see what city staff have come up with under the first budget to be produced under the supervision of interim City Manager Michael C. Rogers. Greene County Supervisors will advertise their tax rate. The elected officials in Albemarle and Nelson hold work session.

Week Ahead for February 28, 2022: Standard Communities to make case for $23M in “exempt facility” bonds for Midway Manor; Smart Scale workshop planned for Monday

This is another strange week that takes place in two different months. No week is quiet in a community as dynamic as the metropolitan area that radiates out from Charlottesville. There’s always something interesting to know about before it happens at a government meeting. This newsletter intends to let you know of some of the things you might want to watch either live or in archive form.

Week Ahead for February 21, 2022: City Council to review State of the Forest; updates on Zion Crossroads and Rio Road Corridor plans

Today is Presidents’ Day and I celebrated by doing a different newsletter on Sunday, when I usually write this one up. There is only one meeting on the agenda today, so I took the liberty of getting this one out a little later than usual. I’ll be back to Sunday publication next week.

Week Ahead for February 14, 2022: Albemarle Supervisors to take up developer incentives for affordable housing

Love of local and regional government is in the air, or at least in my heart. Each week I’m blessed to be able to take a look at what’s coming up on the agendas of local meetings with the goal of explaining the various subjects. At some point, I may have been hit with the wrong kind of arrow.
