On 9/6, we were joined by Matthew Gillikin of Livable Cville. Livable Cville advocates for policies to build an inclusive Charlottesville area with affordable housing, sustainable transportation & healthy neighborhoods welcoming to all. Matthew taught us about the history of zoning in Charlottesville and the currently ongoing zoning rewrite. The Charlottesville Planning Commission meets Thursday 9/14 and UDems is planning to attend to show support for zoning that promotes affordability, equity, and environmentalism.
This week on 9/5 we will hear from Larry Roberts, Director of the UVA Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership! He'll be talking to us about "Virginia Politics 101."
