Planning the community's future

"Our community is growing fast, but we still have time to plan ways to avoid traffic congestion, pollution and other problems."

Hannah Twaddell, Senior Planner
Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission

"Designing for Today and Tomorrow"

The first of four workshops open to the public

  • April 8 -- 9 a.m. - noon

  • Jefferson Area Board for Aging Community Room

  • 674 Hillsdale Drive

The planning district is one of 35 communities recently selected to participate in a new national program promoting innovative transportation and land design. The commission received a $517,000 federal grant to involve area residents in creating transportation and land design strategies for the rapidly growing eastern areas and to develop an interactive computer model which helps planners compare possible scenarios.

Several organizations will work on the Jefferson Area Eastern Planning Initiative, a two-year project, including U.Va.'s School of Architecture and the Institute for Sustainable Design.
