Brian Wheeler of Charlottesville Tomorrow joins Coy Barefoot each week on WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now to discuss growth and development issues. This week, Brian describes how he sees room for improvement in the County budgeting process. He says the community would benefit from discussing budget approaches earlier in the cycle when the Supervisors receive projected assessment information and set compensation strategy in the fall.

Coy and Brian also discuss the C-Ville Weekly investigative story describing the 2006 land transfers by the County to support the expansion of the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC). Mr. Wheeler also described the design competition being managed by the Charlottesville Community Design Center (CCDC) and the potential that contest has to get the public and developers thinking about what might happen to the last open lots near the Downtown Mall between South Street and Water Street across from LiveArts.
