CRN: Brian Wheeler of Charlottesville Tomorrow on Albemarle Place, proffers, impact fees

Brian Wheeler of Charlottesville Tomorrow joins Charlottesville–Right Now for his weekly update on growth and development issues. This installment begins with the impact Albemarle Place will have on Route 29. For starters, the plan is to add another traffic at the post office. But, the development is currently stalled due to inadequate sewer capacity, as reported in C-VILLE Weekly. The discussion the continues on to the topic of possible changes to proffer guidelines in Albemarle County. For the first time, staffers can recommend developers help pay for transportation improvements, but Brian has reservations about the limits of those proffers. Another tool county governments get is the impact fee, which were recently authorized by Governor Kaine, though it’s not yet clear how they will be implemented.
