On November 14, 2006 the

Albemarle County Planning Commission

held a work session on the proposed Biscuit Run development.  This rezoning request was recently resubmitted to the County and the purpose of the meeting was to familiarize the Commissioners with the new plans and to allow an opportunity for public comment. Presentations were made by attorney

Steve Blaine

representing the applicant and by two members of the design team from

Torti Gallas and Partners


Bob Goodill


Beth Hesler

.  About 50 members of the public attended the meeting and 10 spoke during the public comment opportunity.  Transportation issues, disturbance of critical slopes, and the existing large supply of approved and unbuilt housing in Charlottesville-Albemarle topped the community’s list of concerns.

Charlottesville Tomorrow

has produced an audio podcast of the entire meeting available below.  Staff were not expected to submit an analysis or recommendations at this review.  The County is awaiting the submission of a revised transportation study. Additional work sessions are tentatively scheduled to be held on December 19, 2006 and January 16, 2007.
