2006 Strategic Initiatives
 
Community

TJPED’s Sue Friedman served on the Albemarle County Strategic Planning for Economic Vitality committee, with particular focus on “Goal One – Enhance the quality of life for all county residents through a strong and sustainable economy and by increasing the economic vitality of the development areas.”

 

Ongoing discussions advanced between TJPED, VPTC/CVG, and the Chamber of Commerce about how the organizations can align their respective goals.  Discussions are continuing in 2007 with a collaborative work plan and shared staffing as a goal.

 

US Airways In-Flight Magazine

TJPED worked with Pace Communications and other partners to sponsor a feature on Charlottesville / Albemarle County in US Airways In flight magazine.  The feature created awareness about the tourism, cultural and business community in “Jefferson’s Virginia.”

 

Defense Intelligence Agency Realignment Project

TJPED collaborated with Piedmont Workforce Network, Albemarle County and others to gather data on the Defense Intelligence Agency relocation of employees as part of BRAC.  Work will continue in 2007 with working groups focused on the impacts of growth, transition of the workforce, and relocation of contractors.
