Utility relocation work remains ongoing.  Out of 21 total parcels, 18 are clear.  A meeting was held Monday, March 24th with Charlottesville City and School Board representatives to discuss the needed right-of-way and easements.  The matter will be taken before both the City Council and School Board to consider adopting formal resolutions to provide these by donation.  The Storm Water Management (SWM) committee is nearing completion of its design.  The Committee is planning to submit in May to City Council for approval.  Given these outstanding issues, an adjustment to the advertisement date will be necessary.  The project is targeting a late Fall advertisement date.
