BACKGROUND:

Currently the County has contact with new residents moving into Albemarle through our Real Estate Division via sales verification letters and through our Finance Department via vehicle decals, tax payments and other licensing type activities. With approximately 2000 new residents moving to Albemarle County every year, there is an excellent opportunity to share important County government information with incoming citizens through these outreach opportunities.  Staff has revised and expanded the brochure that was being used for new resident information to provide comprehensive information about county government services and philosophies to help relocating citizens understand more about our community and how to interact with County government.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 1 - Enhance the Quality of Life for all Albemarle County Residents. 

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The attached brochure will be distributed to all new county residents in several ways.  The brochure is being shared with the Charlottesville Albemarle Association of Realtors (CAAR) for distribution to their members and is being posted to the website for download by interested persons.  Also, the brochure is being included in the mailing that goes to all new property owners from the Real Estate Division and is being distributed by the Visitors Assistance Center and by the Finance Department to new residents who come in to the building or who receive mailings from the County.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

Printing of the brochure will be funded through existing funds.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

This item is for information, there is no action required by the Board.  The Community Relations Office would be happy to provide additional copies of the brochure to Board members who may want to have them available for distribution.
