City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County Meet to Discuss Downtown Parking

Today staff from the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County met at City Hall to discuss the General District Courts. The City requested the meeting as an opportunity to clarify its June 2016 proposal regarding a City/County partnership for downtown parking for courts operations. Negotiations were paused in November 2016 to allow the County to study the feasibility of relocating the courts and/or County administrative offices.

As caseload activity increases and our population grows, the County’s courts facilities and the security they provide are inadequate to meet our current and projected needs. Over the past several months the County has been engaged with Stantec Greystone to explore the opportunities, benefits, and challenges of relocating the Courts and/or County administrative offices. The County seeks to deliver the most cost efficient economic benefit to County residents while preserving accessible Court facilities by relocating either Court facilities or County administration offices to an urban area in the County.

The result of Stantec Greystone’s analysis has been presented to the Board of Supervisors during work sessions held in November and December. The Board is holding a public hearing on Stantec Greystone’s analysis tonight and is expected to provide staff directions on desired next steps during a meeting on December 20.
