Senior Statesmen discuss the challenges of growth and development
On April 11, 2007, the
Senior Statesmen of Virginia (SSV)
held their monthly meeting at the Northside Library in Charlottesville, VA. The three invited panelists, among the community’s most familiar faces when it comes to discussions of local growth and development issues, shared their views on topics including land use, transportation, population growth, government regulation, and property rights.
The panelists were:
Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population
Piedmont Environmental Council
Free Enterprise Forum
Before an audience of about forty people, each panelist made a presentation about the role of their organization and provided their assessment of the growth and development challenges facing local government and our community at-large.
President Don Wells, described the Senior Statesmen “as a vehicle for senior citizens to get together to learn about issues, to discuss them, but also to potentially take action… to influence the political process.”
