Officials discuss new roads, Albemarle Place, citizen involvement

Members of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Metropolitan Planning Organization met on November 17th to discuss the transportation needs of the region. The MPO is a transportation decisionmaking group made up of Charlottesville and Albemarle representatives and Virginia Department of Transportation employees.

Major issues under discussion were the new “candidate projects” system for prioritizing road project funding, the new Albemarle Place development at the intersection of 29 North and Hydraulic Road, and improved communications with local citizens.

The meeting was chaired by David Brown, Mayor of Charlottesville.
