Charlottesville Tomorrow has an excellent summary and podcast about last night’s Public Outreach meeting held by the RWSA.Â That they are holding these meetings shows how far they have come since Tom Frederick took the helm.Bill Emory notes: RWSA has taken the community input about the water source and they are acting to realize the vision!…Â In time, I would like to see the local governments podcast much of their Planning Commission meeting, BoS meetings, City Council, etc. The quick progress that Cville Tomorrow is making is an excellent sign….Â The water debate is a sign of the public actually being heard and making a difference.

I rarely do Public open houses because I think that they typically are an opportunity for the agent to gain buyers rather than actually sell the house.Â However, this weekend I will be holding 720 Grayrock Drive open from 1 until 4pm, as the timing works out well for me and for my sellers and I am trying to continue my focus on the Crozet market.Â Please stop by; this house is beautiful inside and out.
