Albemarle County’s Places 29 initiative continues this week with an open house on Thursday, May 18 and an all-day workshop on Saturday. Both events will be held at Sutherland Middle School. The project is at a critical phase – three frameworks offering three different alternatives for how to plan land use and transportation infrastructure will be critiqued by attendees. I stopped by the Albemarle County Executive Building on Tuesday to speak with Albemarle County senior planner Judith Wiegand and Harrison Rue of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District to find out more.
I also stopped by and spoke with Brian Wheeler of Charlottesville Tomorrow to get more perspective on Places 29. To learn more about the initiative before you go, visit Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Places 29 page.
