The proposed Meadowbrook Flats residential development at Barracks Road and Emmet Street is still alive. The plans have evolved slightly since the spring.
The current version:
The informal group of neighbors (from the Meadowbrook Hills/Rugby area and from Venable) that has been monitoring the project still believes that it has basic flaws that will hurt our immediate area, our house values, traffic flow, and the larger city. This message outlines our concerns and it provides you with some information about how you can register your own views as the City reviews this plan.
The Meadowbrook Flats development (aka 1138 Emmet Street) will be on the agenda of the Charlottesville City Planning Commission, Tuesday, September 10.
Much of the project is “by right,” but the Planning Commission must consider two specific issues: does the project comply with the Entrance Corridor Guidelines, and should it receive a waiver from the Critical Slope Ordinance?
We encourage you to attend the meeting. You can also offer your views in e mail to the Planning Commission, to City Council, or to the Neighborhood Planner in charge of reviewing this project (Brian Haluska).
Contact information for all these folks appears at the end of this message. Please write those city personnel with your views. Public Comments will make a big difference.
The Coordinating Committee tracking the Meadowbrook Flats project has developed some talking points that residents can reference when speaking or writing about their concerns. It is recommended that not all of the points be included in each communication. Each resident should express in his/her own words those points which they find most important.
Please act now to register your view. This is our city and we need to speak out.
You can send your concerns to Brian Haluska, City Planner at firstname.lastname@example.org (434) 970-3186 or to: Charlottesville City Planning Commission.
NOTE: To contact these individuals please call the Department of Neighborhood Development Services at (434) 970-3182.
