BACKGROUND:

The Planning Commission held a work session on November 15, 2005 and recommended no changes to the draft Six Year Secondary Priority List found in Planning Commission’s staff report (Appendix I, Attachment A).

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

3.1 Make the County a Safe and Healthy Community in which citizens feel secure to live, work and play.

 

DISCUSSION:

The primary purpose of this worksession is to provide:

·         Initial overview of the Six Year Road Plan process;

·         General review of the existing projects on the County’s priority list of road improvements and potential projects to be considered for inclusion in this year’s revision of the list; and

·         Opportunity for the Board of Supervisors to discuss the County’s existing priority list or other potential projects/issues.

 

In a separate matter not part of the consideration of the Six Year Secondary Plan 2006/07-2011/12, staff also discussed with the Planning Commission the Town of Scottsville’s request to assist the Town in securing revenue sharing funds for a primary project located at the intersection of Route 20 and Route 6. The project would improve drainage at the intersection. The Town of Scottsville has requested that Albemarle County assist the Town by submitting the necessary forms to obtain matching funds from VDOT in the amount of $100,000. The Town of Scottsville will cover the local requirement of $100,000. Revenue sharing funds can be utilized on primary projects. The request for the Town of Scottsville must be processed through the County because Scottsville is not a qualifying locality.

 

In the near future (December 2005 or January 2006), the County will get an invitation to participate in the revenue sharing program for FY 2006/07. If the County decides to assist Scottsville, the allocation available to Albemarle County for revenue sharing will be reduced by $100,000.

 

The Planning Commission indicated that more information would be needed to make a recommendation. The Town of Scottsville has provided additional information since the Planning Commission meeting, which can be found on Appendix III.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

This work session is to receive comment from the Board on the draft Priority List. A public hearing is scheduled for December 14, 2005. Regarding the Scottsville request for assistance in obtaining Revenue Sharing funds, unless the Board has specific direction as to this matter at this time, staff recommends that the information  the Town has provided be reviewed by the Planning Commission and their recommendation be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors.
