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


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!

The NIFI process ran from March - November 2017, with development areas working together to identify small-scale, quality of life improvement projects for their community.
