Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Brian Wheeler joins Coy Barefoot each Tuesday to talk about growth and development issues in the area surrounding Charlottesville. This week the topics of conversation include the Eastern Connector
, why secondary road projects like Georgetown Road improvements take so long, a “sobering update” on the drought
, the latest on the proposed Regional Transportation Authority
, expansion at the University of Virginia’s Fontaine Research Park, and the amount of recent commercial development in the region.
The public will get two chances to weigh in on three potential routes for the Eastern Connector. The first will be tonight at 7:00 PM (11/28/07) at Baker-Butler Elementary and the second will be on Thursday (11/29/07) in the Albemarle County Office Building.
