Cville Plans Together — Dates announced for interactive webinars, drop-in webinars, and pop-up events


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The City of Charlottesville announces an opportunity to review a draft Affordable Housing Plan and Comprehensive Plan revisions as part of Cville Plans Together. 

The City is working in partnership with a consultant team on an effort to update the city's Comprehensive Plan (including an Affordable Housing Plan) and then complete a rewrite of the zoning ordinance. 

This process, branded Cville Plans Together, kicked off with a virtual conversation series and webinars in May and June 2020. Now, the community is encouraged to review the draft Affordable Housing Plan and initial Comprehensive Plan Revisions, which are outlined in virtual meeting “stations” on the Cville Plans Together website

Community input is encouraged. One way to submit comments is through an online survey, which will be available on the website through December 2. There is also a toll-free number available; interested parties can call (833) 752-6428 to hear a message in English and Spanish and provide comments.

In addition to the materials on the website, you can learn more and share your input in other ways, outlined below. More information about all activities, including registration links, can be found at CvillePlansTogether.com/virtual-meeting
