Albemarle County is currently studying a potential Comprehensive Plan amendment to adjust the Development Area Boundary and associated land use designation(s). On June 10, the Board of Supervisors passed a Resolution of Intent directing staff to undertake this study.

A preliminary survey by County staff has found that there presently may be inadequate land in Albemarle County to accommodate the County's endorsed Target Industries (Bioscience and Medical Devices, Business and Financial Services, Information Technology and Defense Security, and Agribusiness, Food Processing and Related Technology) that has access to major transportation facilities, access to multi-directional transportation corridors, proximity or immediate access to public utilities, and proximity to downtown Charlottesville and the University of Virginia.

This amendment consideration focuses on lands southwest of the existing Development Area boundary between Interstate 64 and US Route 29 South, generally south and east of the future County park and extending to the approximate location of the third crossover from the Interstate 64 interchange on Route 29 South. For more specific details, please see the Resolution of Intent.

The Community meetings listed on the right will provide an opportunity for residents to receive information and ask questions about the proposed amendment, County review procedures, and relevant regulations and policies of the County applicable to the proposed amendment.
