code 434 starts June 1
June 1, the Charlottesville/Albemarle area, in addition to 17
neighboring counties, will begin using a new area code
434. Portions of additional counties affected by the area code
change include: southern Greene, southwestern Louisa, eastern
Bedford, southern Cumberland, southwestern Sussex, extreme southeastern
Dinwiddie and southern Prince George counties. The 804 number
will still cover Richmond and the surrounding area. The boundaries
for area codes 540, 571, 703 and 757 will not change.
1, 2001, and Jan. 15, 2002, either area code will work. After
that time, the new area code will become mandatory.
Now is the time to begin making the necessary changes at the University.
Offices and departments will need to change phone numbers on all
printed materials, such as stationery, letterhead, envelopes,
business cards, checks and banking forms. In addition, e-mail
signatures, fax machines, Web sites and voice-mail recordings
with area codes should also be changed.
would be a good time to consider using the new U.Va. logo on reprinted
