A cooperative project among the City of Charlottesville, County of Albemarle, and University of Virginia. The study will focus on the Jefferson Park Avenue/Fontaine area, including University and County properties adjacent to the City boundary and lying south of Moore's Creek. When completed, the study will produce a framework plan focusing on significant demographic, socio-economic, land use, transportation, and student housing patterns and trends.

Neighborhood Model & Related Zoning Text Amendments
Albemarle County's Neighborhood Model is a guide for developing the County's designated Development Areas.  It was appended to the Comprehensive Plan on May 16, 2001. Subsequent changes to the Land Use Portion of the Comprehensive Plan to reinforce the Neighborhood Model were adopted on July 10, 2002. The Neighborhood Model describes the more "urban" form of development desired for the Development Areas. It establishes the 12 Principles for Development that should be adhered to in new development proposals.
