Woolen Mills Historic Conservation Overlay District (CV) information session – Dec 1 @ 6PM

Woolen Mills proposed CV

An information session is scheduled for Thursday, December 1 at 6pm at the historic chapel (1819 East Market St). (You may have already seen the posters throughout the neighborhood.) The primary goal of this meeting is to answer neighborhood questions regarding the historic overlay regulations and process.

The WMNA board, per their decision at the Nov 14 board meeting, has requested that city council suspend their hearing on the CV until after the information session is held. After this session, the board will determine whether there is any further need for information gathering by the neighborhood, or any need for the board to change its previous position on the CV.

Attendees will include:

  • Mary Joy Scala (AICP, Preservation and Design Planner, City of Charlottesville)
  • Melanie Miller (chair, Board of Architectural Review)
  • Member(s) of the Charlottesville Planning Commission
  • In order to use the time most efficiently, we recommend preparing questions in advance. If you can email questions to Mary Joy Scala ([email protected]) and copy me ([email protected]), Mary Joy will most likely be able to provide more detailed answers. As soon as possible, I will post the questions to the Woolen Mills Neighborhood website, so folks can see what questions have been posted already.

    Please keep in mind that this informational meeting is not a referendum on the CV itself. If you have stated your approval or disapproval of the proposed conservation overlay district and don’t want any more information, you don’t need to attend the session.

    I look forward to seeing everyone interested in getting more clarity on the historic overlay district at the meeting next Thursday, and hope you have an enjoyable holiday!

    With thanks for all my Woolie neighbors,

    John Frazee (Chair WMNA)
