Charlottesville parks renaming survey released

The City of Charlottesville would like the community’s input on the renaming of our downtown parks. A survey has been launched to receive suggestions for the downtown parks initially renamed in June 2017. The survey can be completed online, on paper in the City Manager’s office or via telephone.

Charlottesville City Council would like the community’s input on a NEW name for Emancipation Park (formerly Lee Park) and whether to keep the name Justice Park (formerly Jackson Park) or select a new name. The names included in this survey were all ones previously submitted to the city. The names Lee Park, Jackson Park, and Emancipation Park will not be considered.

This survey will be open through March 28, 2018.

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
