Fresh off her recent accolades, Jessica Kitchin with the DP brings us two excellent stories this morning on Growth. First up is an overview of where Albemarle County is today. The second story is the first in a series of growth articles to come this week.
Albemarle is becoming much, much more segmented and defined as such by the various developments associated with those segments – Old Trail in Crozet, Biscuit Run to the (slightly) South, 29 North and Pantops Mountain.Â

County officials have said the issue was merely one of miscommunication, and they hope that as the vision of the Master Plan plays out – and as they seek more funding to provide infrastructure – residents will find renewed faith.

There are so many desired and unintended consequences related to growth – it is excruciatingly difficult to manage them all.
I am left with two questions – if we don’t grow, what happens? And – what do we do and talk about after the growth?
