This week on WTJU’s Soundboard, Emily and Billy talk with host Lewis Reining about Albemarle County’s growth strategies. Emily discusses the largest conservation easement in Albemarle, which is more than half the size of the city of Charlottesville. As the county works to keep rural areas rural, the county is also investing in job growth in its designated development areas. Billy describes methods these technology companies can use to ensure that job growth benefits diverse populations.
