On August 29, 2006, the
Albemarle County Planning Commission
held a worksession with Ron White, Albemarle County’s Chief of Housing, and representatives from non-profit partners in the affordable housing community.
The purpose of the meeting was to review the County’s strategic goal regarding the availability of affordable living choices for its residents, to review current initiatives, and to receive input from partner organizations. Invited guests included representatives from the Piedmont Housing Alliance, the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority, the Albemarle Housing Improvement Program, and Habitat for Humanity.
Later in their meeting, Ms. Joseph brought up a suggestion from Dave Phillips of the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors. Mr. Phillips suggested another worksession should be held so that the Commission could hear from builders and developers on affordable housing issues.
The Planning Commission reached consensus to hold another worksession with those groups in the near future
