Reserve a Seat for Board of Architectural Review Meeting

The Board of Architectural Review (BAR) will now accept up to 20 members of the public for in-person seating at CitySpace (100 5th Street NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902) during each regular BAR meeting for the duration of the locally declared state of emergency. The 5:00 p.m. BAR pre-meeting will be in-person and limited to BAR members only, with virtual access available for the public. The 5:30 p.m. BAR Meeting will be in-person at CitySpace with up to 20 pre-registered members of the public along with limited staff. 

You may request a seat starting at 9:00 a.m. the Tuesday before the Board of Architectural Review meeting through 9:00 a.m. the day of the BAR meeting that you would like to attend.  Seats are selected randomly if more than 20 registrations are received.


To request a seat reservation at the next regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting:

Process for Determining Attendee List

Registrations are documented in order of receipt. Should more than 20 people register, each request will be assigned a number. All numbers are submitted to an online random number sequencer that generates random numbers in the range of total sign-ups. (Example: 30 people sign up, and 30 random numbers are generated between 1 and 30.) The first 20 randomly generated numbers are given a reserved seat. Two of these seats will accommodate those needing accessible seating.  NDS staff will notify registrants of their status. 


  • Registered attendees must enter CitySpace.
  • A registration list will be checked.
  • Guests of attendees will not be permitted entry; registered attendees only to sit in designated open seats.
  • Entry is permitted from 5:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. 
  • Masks must be worn the full time inside CitySpace.
  • Other members of the public will be able to join Planning Commission meetings through the Zoom webinar associated with each meeting.
