Graduate Thesis: Participants Needed for Neighborhood Focus Group
Hello to all residents of Fry’s Spring! My name is Will Milone and I’m a graduate student of Architectural History and Historic Preservation at UVA. I am in the process of writing my thesis, which focuses on perceptions of historic value and historic preservation in older suburban neighborhoods in Charlottesville and Alexandria, Virginia. I invite all FSNA members to participate in a focus group for the Fry’s Spring neighborhood that I plan to host by December 17. The focus group will include six to ten participants and will last an hour and a half. If interested, please fill out this sign-up form which will ask participants a series of basic demographic questions, an ideal date or dates for the focus group, and ideal mode of meeting (in-person outside, in-person inside and masked, or zoom). I would so appreciate your help with this integral part of my academic career! Thanks so much.
240 Stribling Development Proposal
The Planning Commission voted in favor of the rezoning of 240 Stribling during their November 9th meeting after Southern Development agreed to provide a $2.9 million loan to the City for sidewalk, stormwater, and other roadway improvements. Sean Tubbs provides a nice summary of the discussion here.
Matt Alfele, City Planner informed interested parties that the 240 Stribling Avenue PUD rezoning and critical slope will not be on the City Council agenda for December 6th. The topic is anticipated to be on the City Council agenda in January or February. Anyone interested to check upcoming City Council agendas at the following link. City Council sets their own agenda and sometimes information is not readily available to staff (or neighbors) until the agenda is posted online.
