Albemarle County Village of Rivanna Master Plan
Albemarle County and the Planning District entered into an agreement to engage the Planning District as a consultant on this project. Through extensive public outreach and guidance from the Albemarle County Planning Commission, Planning District and Albemarle County staff prepared a draft Master Plan.
The Village of Rivanna Master Plan is intended to provide guidance on where and how new residential and nonresidential uses should develop in the Village of Rivanna development area. It is further intended to make recommendations on the future of Route 250 East across the northern boundary of the development area. Finally, its purpose is to guide the timing of new development in the Village. To assure that the Plan comprehensively plans for the Village, work on the Master Plan has carried over to the next fiscal year.
RideShare provided carpool matching service to 203 Albemarle County residents in FY09 and collaborated with several of the county’s largest employers to provide services such as carpool matching, Guaranteed Ride Home service, and telework assistance. RideShare also provided outreach to public and private schools in the county through the “A Day on the Go” program.
In the past fiscal year (July 1, 2008 to June 30, 200) the HOME Consortium drew down $1,027,373 in HOME funds, excluding administrative funds. Fifteen percent of HOME funds are reserved for Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) projects. Remaining funds are evenly distributed among the six localities.
The Albemarle Housing Improvement Program (AHIP) completed seven home-owner rehabilitation projects. Piedmont Housing Alliance (PHA) also initiated work on 38 new and 28 rehabilitated rental units at Crozet Meadows. This project received $143,084 in Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) funds. These funds are allocated among the six localities on a rotating basis.
TJPDC worked with state legislators representing Albemarle County to secure approval of legislation to
1) provide that the unposted maximum speed limit on nonsurface treated highways (dirt roads) in the County will be 35 miles per hour, and
2) to expand the scenic river designation for the Rivanna River to include a nine mile stretch downstream from the South Fork Rivanna reservoir.
