After the Charlottesville Planning Commission last week voted to recommend closing Brandon Avenue and a portion of Monroe Lane to make way for a University of Virginia redevelopment project, the City Council moved forward Monday with plans to vacate sewer easements so construction on new student apartments can begin soon.
The university is planning a multifunctional green space, enhanced pedestrian connections, and a mix of uses for the student community, including a new apartment building that will feature approximately 300 units for students.
No one spoke during the pair of public hearings regarding the city’s plans to abandon the sewer easement at Brandon Avenue and the portion of an unused easement in the new Dunlora Park subdivision preceded several other council agenda items Monday.
