I’m thinking about doing these sorts of posts regularly. Charlottesville Tomorrow is one of the community’s most valuable resources and they put out a tremendous amount of information that is relevant to my clients, potential clients, (and importantly, myself and my family).
But they put out a lot of good information. Like, firehose-volumes of information.
These are some of the most interesting and relevant posts from the past week to the Charlottesville area real estate conversation:
- Council chooses path for West Main streetscape, partially approves rezoning
- The West Main corridor is changing. From the behemoth Flats at West Main to the butcher to the new restaurants and flood of apartments, and forthcoming bicycle lanes and less parking, it’s important to pay to a lot of attention to this part of Charlottesville.
- (Albemarle County) School board approves $35.5M capital project list for bond referendum
- But no fields. Fields for play are far more important (IMHO) than nearly $3M of undefined “Security” improvements
- City Council makes progress toward Charlottesville’s capital budget
- Skate park, parkland acquisition, Hillsdale Drive extension, the deteriorating Landmark Hotel … there’s a lot of stuff here that matters.
- Albemarle seeking new ways to build urban infrastructure
- The old/present way simply isn’t working. Rio, Crozet, identity and place … walking and biking places instead of defaulting to cars.
- Council supports return of parking meters in pilot program
- This is such a massive change and conversation … keep this perspective in mind, too – Just Because You Can’t Find a Place to Park Doesn’t Mean There Aren’t Way Too Many Parking Spots
- Albemarle supervisors once again considering moving courts out of downtown
- On the surface, this seems to be such a bad idea. Some good ideas and comments on this facebook post, though.
Spend some time learning about our community; there’s too so much going on.
