On August 7, 2006, the Charlottesville City Council approved a resolution of intent to establish a new

Regional Transit Authority

with Albemarle County. The resolution was previously approved by the

Metropolitan Planning Organization

and Albemarle County’s Board of Supervisors.  The University of Virginia has not yet indicated whether it will be a participant.

What I am hoping we will do together is devise a plan to more forward with a comprehensive transit system that is a much larger scale than what we have in place today. And if that means a significant increase in County participation financially, I believe our current [County Board of Supervisors] is prepared to move forward in that way

.”  David Slutzky

In this recording by Charlottesville Tomorrow, Mayor David Brown introduces the topic for the Council’s consideration.  Following his introductory remarks, Mayor Brown invites David Slutzky to the podium to speak to Council.  Mr. Slutzky is a member of the Albemarle County BOS and the acting chair of the Metropolitan Planning Organization.
