Charlottesville Tomorrow put out a lot of good, useful, relevant stories – relevant to me, as I live here, and relevant to how I practice real estate (as in, I need to know more than my clients!)
A few stories from Charlottesville Tomorrow over the past few weeks
- Albemarle development areas to receive equal neighborhood improvements funding
- Doling out money to the Community Advisory Committees …
- Albemarle eyes public-private partnership for new government complex
- If Albemarle moves the courts out of the City of Charlottesville … so very many things will change.
- Albemarle to allow solar farms in rural areas
- King Street zoning change approved by City Planning Commission
- The City of Charlottesville is getting more dense as it grows/changes/evolves into a city.
- Residents want more voice in city government as development continues
- Big stuff in the City of Charlottesville. Reminder: being a citizen is work.
- Council considers land donation to assist redevelopment of Monticello Dairy
- The Preston Corridor is (finally) changing
- Review continues for townhomes in North Pointe development
- This is about the development to the North West of Airport Road. Read this story in the context of Brookhill coming to the corner of Polo Grounds Road and 29, and in the context of how existing neighborhoods don’t want interlopers in their existing neighborhoods. (they must love cars)
- This, too
- Old Trail petitions for Western Park master plan revision
- Crozet needs more park space; Old Trail wants their park

As an aside, this is my comment from a recent FB discussion
I think it’s good advice to consider the source of anything and everything.
I give to Charlottesville Tomorrow every year because it’s the best damn source of information in our region about stuff that matters to me as someone who lives and loves here, *and* so that I know better so as to represent my clients (I’m a Realtor who is pro- great place to live, with healthy growth and economic development.
*And* their archives are there, are searchable, and I can refer to them years later.
I actually have a post going up later today that highlights some of the more relevant (to me/clients) stories, because the information isn’t available anywhere else.
The Charlottesville Tomorrow folks go to meetings that almost none of us do, and until I start attending 1/100th of the public meetings that they do, I’ll continue to donate, because 1) they provide immense value and 2) no one else is reporting as they do.
And … regarding the “Who’s at the table” conversation … Usually, not too many.
And … let’s not forget about Cvillepedia!
