DEMAND BOTH FAIR ZONING and AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Write City Council Now council@charlottesvile.org

 

Ask Them To:

  1. Stop the current extreme plan
  2. Complete the legally-mandated traffic analysis study
  3. Apply a modified RN-A Overlay City-Wide With:
    • 1 by right house per lot
    • A more flexible ADU system
    • City programs helping owners to build
    • Required Affordable Units

 

THE CURRENT PLAN HAS DENSITY BUT NO GUARANTEED AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Despite the hype, there is ZERO affordable housing guaranteed by this extreme density – a density our infrastructure cannot support.


DEMAND RESPONSIBLE PLANNING TODAY!

 

Charlottesville’s City Council may soon pass the most aggressive “upzoning” ordinance in the country. Here’s an overview of where the proposed ordinance currently stands; its key features and risks; and how you can voice your opinion to Charlottesville’s City Council.

 

  • Charlottesville’s Planning Commission has prepared the “final draft” of a proposed new zoning ordinance that will significantly affect all City neighborhoods.  The Zoning Ordinance is the final output of a process that began with the Comprehensive Plan update approved in 2021.
  • The draft zoning ordinance (DZO) is now in the hands of Charlottesville’s City Council, which is responsible for reviewing and possibly revising the current draft before adopting it into law.

Voice Your Opinion:  City Council needs to hear from you! Speak up in person or via zoom at the December 18 Council Public Hearing or email City Council at council@charlottesville.gov
