During a final open house Monday on the concepts for the Pantops Master Plan update, community members shared their thoughts on the work that has been done so far at smaller focus area meetings that began in February.

Pantops is one of Albemarle County’s designated growth areas, the 5 percent of the county where residential and business growth is focused. A master plan for the area was first adopted in 2008.

The plan update started in January, and the Pantops Community Area Advisory Committee and other community members have met to discuss land use and development area boundaries; parks and trails; economic development/redevelopment; and transportation.
