Help us Prioritize the Project List!
 
During April, the Neighborhood Improvement Funding Initiative is looking to prioritize the projects identified during the community brainstorm in March. Now is the time to answer the question – which projects do you think are most important to improve the quality of life in your community? The best way to participate is by attending the April Community Advisory Committee meeting for your part of the county (see below for dates and locations). If you can’t attend in person, you can still add your thoughts online. From April 7 – 14, you can review the list of projects for your area and select your top choices.

Background on the Neighborhood Improvement Funding Initiative
Is there a small-scale improvement, like walking trails or playground equipment, that would benefit your community? The Neighborhood Improvement Funding Initiative is a new, one-time program approved by the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors to drive investment in quality of life projects in the County’s development areas. County residents are invited to participate in a series of community meetings happening in the development areas to identify and then prioritize projects for your area. Read on to learn more about this initiative.
 
Development areas are the urbanized portions of the County and include the urban ring around the City of Charlottesville, the 29 North corridor, Pantops, Crozet, and the Village of Rivanna. Each area has a master plan and a Board-appointed Community Advisory Committee to help oversee and implement the plan. View a map of the development areas and find the Community Advisory Committee nearest you!
 
During April, the seven Community Advisory Committees will hold community meetings to prioritize the projects that came out of the community brainstorm in March. We invite anyone in the community to participate in these meetings in-person (or before the meeting, online).
