On July 19, 2006, the Policy Board of the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) held their monthly meeting.

In this edited recording by Charlottesville Tomorrow, we have included only the comments from the public and the MPO board about the proposed Eastern Connector .  An alignment study is about to commence on the Eastern Connector and is being funded jointly by the City and County.  Three potential routes are under consideration: Proffit Road between Routes 29 and Route 20; Polo Grounds Road to Route 20; and a new road near Pen Park connecting Rio Rd. to the Route 20 area near Pantops.

Residents may apply to be on the newly formed Eastern Connector Alignment Study Committee .
