Global warming has become such a mainstream concern that it’s attracting the attention of several local groups. The League of Women Voters in Charlottesville/Albemarle chose the topic for its February meeting, with a discussion on what local governments can do to respond to the phenomenon.

The two speakers are former Charlottesville Mayor Maurice Cox, and former Albemarle County Supervisor David Bowerman.

Bowerman served on the county planning commission in the nineteen-eighties before joining the Board of Supervisors in 1989. He chaired the Local Sustainability Council from 1994 to 1998. Maurice Cox served on the Charlottesville City Council for eight years, ending his term in 2004 after a two-year stint as Mayor. He came to Charlottesville to teach architecture at the University of Virginia. He focuses on urban design issues in his teaching, and is a frequent speaker across the nation, extolling the virtues of the city’s downtown pedestrian mall.

Brian Wheeler, Executive Director of Charlottesville Tomorrow, joins Coy Barefoot on the February 27th edition of “Charlottesville—Right Now!” for the weekly growth and development discussion. This week, he and Coy discuss the Places29 Master Plan, proposed grade-separated interchanges on Route 29, and transportation funding plans recently approved by the Virginia General Assembly.
