 About the Village of Rivanna Master Plan
The Village of Rivanna development area is located east of the City of Charlottesville and south of Route 250 East (MapAdobe Acrobat PDF 

The Vision for the Village of Rivanna, developed by citizens within the Village, is for a distinct small community surrounded by rural Albemarle. Medium and low density residential neighborhoods will have easy access to the Village Center through multiple modes of travel. The community will preserve historic features, provide open spaces for recreation, and focus commercial activity within the Village Center. The Village of Rivanna Master Plan is intended to provide guidance on where and how new residential and nonresidential uses should develop in the Village of Rivanna development area. It is further intended to make recommendations on the future of Route 250 East across the northern boundary of the development area. Finally, its purpose is to guide the timing of new development in the Village.The Village of Rivanna Community Advisory Committee is guided by two key documents, the Fact Sheet and the Rules of Procedure.
