Community Advisory Committees

Albemarle County’s Community Advisory Committees are community groups that meet regularly in the county’s development areas. These Board-appointed committees provide assistance, feedback and input to County staff and the Board of Supervisors on efforts related to implementation of the Master Plan for their area. Committee members live or work in the area in which they serve. A diverse cross-section of perspectives ensures active conversations about timely topics of interest. Each committee has one or more liaisons from the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. It’s a great way for citizens to get involved with local government and meet new people in the community.

There are 7 Community Advisory Committees – find the one nearest you!

Neighborhood Improvements Funding Initiative

ABOUT

The Neighborhood Improvements Funding Initiative (NIFI) is a one-time, Board of Supervisors’ initiative to direct FY16 fund balance to drive investment in quality of life projects across the County’s Development Areas through an inclusive, community-driven process. The “home” of the process will be at the Community Advisory Committee meetings throughout 2017. How would you improve your neighborhood? Join the conversation!

Phase I of NIFI, project identification and prioritization, will occur between February and May 2017. Information will be provided on Phase II as it is available.

PROCESS

  • March – Community Brainstorm. Review neighborhood improvements already identified through public processes for your area and then add your new ideas to the list, online or in-person.
  • April – Prioritization. Review all of the ideas for neighborhood improvements – including the new ones collected during March – and pick your top projects!
  • May – Pause. County staff will share the prioritized project list for each area with the community and the Board of Supervisors on May 10.
  • June - The Board of Supervisors will consider funding allocation.
  • July -  Weigh in on the next round of project idea prioritization online or in-person.
  • Summer - Projects scoped 
  • Fall - Projects recommended to the Board of Supervisors

PARTICIPATE!

Future opportunities to participate online or in-person will be posted as they become available.
