Residential Development Impact
Work Group


Effective July 1, 2016, proffer authority in the Code of Virginia was amended to change the way that the impacts associated with residential rezonings are evaluated and how proffers may be accepted. In order to be in compliance with State law, Albemarle County’s Cash Proffer Policy was repealed on June 8, 2016. The amendment also invalidates the use of the Cost Revenue Impact Model (CRIM) to determine impacts of residential development. To explore how to best achieve Albemarle County’s land use and growth management goals in this new regulatory environment, a work group representing a cross-section of stakeholders is recommended.


The Residential Development Impact Work Group is formed by the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors to understand recent State Code amendments regarding proffers and to develop and analyze alternative means for determining and addressing the fiscal impact of residential development allowed either by-right or subsequent to a rezoning. The Work Group will also provide a recommendation on how to proceed with addressing fiscal impacts of residential development.
