City still formulating role for new high-level position
The Daily Progress Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 10 p.m.
After allocating approximately $120,000 last spring for a new, high-level position to oversee long-range urban plans and engage with neighborhood leaders and property developers, the Charlottesville City Council and City Manager Maurice Jones continue to discuss what they want out of the position.
Councilor Kathy Galvin proposed the position in March, citing various reports from community agencies and neighborhood leaders who said the city needs to improve its zoning codes and development processes to be more efficient, forward-looking and community-engaged.
Though part of the $120,000 won’t be used, as the position has not been filled yet this year, Jones said at the council’s meeting last week that the city will probably require more funding to cover the position.
