Our Town Charlottesville meetings begin Thursday

Charlottesville“Our Town Charlottesville,” a series of town hall style meetings in all of Charlottesville’s neighborhoods, will begin again on Thursday, September 11 with a meeting for residents of the Fifeville, Starr Hill, 10th & Page, Orangedale, West Haven and Blue Ridge Commons neighborhoods.

These meetings are part of a series of community conversations that began in 2010 by a council initiative.  City residents are encouraged to attend these informal meetings to discuss emerging issues, ask questions or share concerns with City Council and staff about their neighborhoods.

The first meeting of the 2014/2015 series will be held on Thursday, September 11 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Carver Recreation Center.  This meeting is targeted at the Fifeville, Starr Hill, 10th & Page, Orangedale, West Haven and Blue Ridge Commons neighborhoods.  The entire community is welcome to attend any meeting, but issues related to the surrounding neighborhoods of each meeting site will be given priority.

Dinner and childcare will be provided.

A complete schedule of meetings is online at www.charlottesville.org/ourtown.
