What follows is an email conversation with a friend last week; we’re all struggling with coming to terms with growth in the City of Charlottesville, County of Albemarle, and surrounding areas. Our community is going to grow. I’ve written before about how I, as a Realtor, and resident, struggle with growth. How we grow – from massing, location, and process perspectives matter. Italics are my words.
And this – being a citizen is hard. It takes time. It takes effort. There are so many empty seats in public meetings … surely some can be filled.
