Various events are anticipated and planned to take place on the weekend of August 10-12 in the City of Charlottesville.
With input from the Virginia State Police, the Charlottesville Police Department, and the Charlottesville Fire Department, Interim City Manager Mike Murphy has determined that it is essential for the safety of persons and property that adjustments be made to City operations, city-sponsored events, vehicular traffic and parking restrictions.
Local residents and businesses are encouraged to review the following changes and, in advance, plan accordingly.
