On March 18, 2006, Albemarle County held a public open house to present three design alternatives for the

Places29 Master Plan

.  This open house was held in advance of a weekend workshop in which each alternative for the 20-year development of the Route 29 North corridor will be presented in more detail for the public’s consideration and comment.


Saturday, May 20th, 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at

Sutherland Middle School

. Breakfast available at 8:30 AM.  Lunch provided.  This is a facilitated public work session on the three alternatives. This is

your opportunity

to provide direct feedback on the three designs developed by County staff, consultants, and our local transportation experts.

About 100 people were in attendance for the first of two briefings at the open house yesterday.  This recording by Charlottesville Tomorrow begins opening remarks by Judy Wiegand, Senior Planner for Albemarle County, and Harrison Rue, Executive Director of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission.  The presentation is by Phil Erickson of Community Design + Architecture and Fred Dock, a transportation consultant with Meyer Mohaddes.
