Planning Commission Meeting Tomorrow

Woodbrook residents are reminded that the Albemarle County Planning Commission will meet tomorrow evening, September 8, 2009, to hear arguments for-and-against the revised Arden Place site plan. At issue is the inclusion of a footpath connection between Arden Place and the Woodbrook Lagoon Project. If you haven’t already done so, listen to our interview with County planners Fritz and Gatobu to learn more about the County’s position on the proposed footpath.

It’s important to note that this is not the same proposal that was put before the Commission on June 23rd. The current proposal recommends at footpath (not a roadway) which connects with the Woodbrook Lagoon Project and not with Woodbrook directly.

As before, Woodbrook residents will each have three minutes to express their views on matters before the commission. This is expected to be the last time residents will have an opportunity to give their opinion on the development. You can also express your opinion here by either taking our poll in the left-hand margin of this page or by adding your comments below.

Today, Labor Day, signals the unofficial end of summer for many folks. We sincerely hope your summer was filled with all the things that are important to you. We also hope you will stay with us throughout the fall. We are working on several stories that we think you will find interesting.
