TO:                 Albemarle County Board of Supervisors


FROM:           Pat Mullaney, Director of Parks and Recreation


DATE:            September 12, 2006    


RE:                 Status Report:  Preddy Creek Property




            On May 3, 2006 the Board of Supervisors initiated the process of designating the Preddy Creek property as a park by directing staff to proceed with a review of this use for compliance with the Comprehensive Plan.  This matter is scheduled for the Albemarle County Planning Commission on October 3, 2006. 


            Funding for park development according to the currently approved CIP is not available until July 1, 2010.  Anticipating a favorable review by the Planning Commission and Board interest in moving this project along, I have requested funding to be moved forward to July 1, 2007 in the most recent CIP request which is currently under review by the technical committee.


            The Planning Commission matter on October 3 is not a request to amend the Comprehensive Plan at this time but rather just to review the proposed park use of the property for compliance with the plan.  I have been advised that a favorable review is all that is necessary to move forward with making the property available for recreational use.  The amendment of the Comprehensive Plan designating the property as a park can take place at a later date perhaps in conjunction with site plan approval. 


Neighboring property owners will be notified that this matter will be up for discussion on October 3 and will be given the opportunity to speak.  Please contact me if you have any questions.
