Wildflower Meadow project set to begin along Rio Road

albemarle countyAlbemarle County will begin site preparation for a new wildflower meadow along Rio Road and Dunlora Drive this week.

Seeding will occur this fall and the meadow is expected to develop in Spring 2020. Once completed, the meadow will have native grass and perennials, with natural grass paths throughout.

Site preparation includes herbicide application, which will be conducted in accordance with the City of Charlottesville’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policy and the Albemarle County Public Schools’ Safer Chemical Management Procedure.

For public awareness and safety, signage will be posted three days prior to each application (and remain posted for 24 hours after) indicating the date of application, the product applied, and staff contact information.

Follow any posted signage through the duration of this project.
