On April 5, 2006, the

Albemarle County Board of Supervisors

held a work session on the Community Development Work Program.  This meeting focused on implementation of the rural area plan, the schedule for master planning designated growth areas, and a significant discussion on transportation issues in the master planning process.

During this discussion, the Supervisors

voted to eliminate consideration of the Ruckersville Parkway

as a transportation option in the Places29 Master Plan.

Supervisors were also presented a schedule of future master plans, including those for Pantops, the Southern Urban Area (incl. Biscuit Run), and the Village of Rivanna (incl. Glenmore).

Staff asked the Board whether it wanted to halt some rezonings (e.g. Biscuit Run) until after master plans in certain areas were completed.

The consensus of the Board was that rezonings should


be held up for that reason and that the master plan schedule proposed by staff (below) was acceptable.
