WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
We have asked the Bank’s local representative to hold another, more appropriately scheduled
community meeting. That meeting is tentatively scheduled for April 27, 2015, 5:45pm, in the Woolen Mills Chapel.
The Albemarle County Planning Commission will meet at a time TBA to discuss whether the designation of “preserved slopes” was properly applied to 37,000 +/- square feet of this site.
The Albemarle Board of Supervisors (at a time TBA) will vote whether to remove the protective designation.
