Charlottesville has started the process of updating the Zoning Ordinance, the first major action to implement the newly adopted Comprehensive Plan and Affordable Housing Plan. This work will take just over a year and the city is actively seeking input and feedback from the entire community. The city is working with a consultant team led by Rhodeside Harwell, Inc.
The first steps in the zoning ordinance rewrite are to identify the changes that are needed to the zoning ordinance and lay out a process for addressing them. The Cville Plans Together team will be working on this element of the project in Winter 2022, and plans to share materials for public input in Spring 2022.
Preservation Piedmont will actively follow the progress of the zoning ordinance rewrite and continue to provide input.
