Albemarle County holds its annual Joint Community Advisory Council Town Hall meeting from 6:30-8:30pm Monday, January 14, in Room 241 of the County Office Building on McIntire Road. The four advisory groups—Crozet, Pantops, Places29 and Village of Rivanna—will gather with staff to talk about development topics that affect the entire county.
  • City and county will hold a joint Planning Commission meeting from 5:30-8:30pm Tuesday, January 15 in room 241 of the County Office Building. The meeting is a follow-up to one in December that saw the two bodies gather to align their missions and map out possible areas for collaboration, from entrance corridors to boosting the local food movement.
  • The County Board of Supervisors gathers at the County Office Building Wednesday, first for a work session on solid waste, then to address several agenda items, including the special use permit to allow events with up to 3,000 people at Castle Hill Cider.
  • The Piedmont Council for the Arts is launching a public planning process for “the first-ever Charlottesville Area Cultural Plan,” with a kickoff meeting from noon to 2pm Thursday, January 17 at CitySpace. Dubbed Create Charlottesville, the planning effort will be focused around four public meetings on the future of the area’s cultural sector. All are welcome to attend and observe; details on future meetings can be found on the PCA website.

    have you ever had your oil changed at jiffy lube in c-ville? well chances are you are one of many who have been ripped off by there pay full price but get less policy. D.M. bob carter has told his guys to give you less oil for full price or they will be fired! if your car takes 6 quarts of oil you will only get 5 to 5.5 quarts. But you will pay for 6. If your car takes 7 quarts of oil you will get 6 to 6.5 quarts ect. this is the why they do business! Buy selling you things your not getting or things you don’t need! don’t believe it try it for your self. when your drive on thr lot they will try to sell you an oil system cleaner that by the way if you buy can cause your car to leak oil if it doesn’t already! if it does leak oil this cleaner will cause you some bad problems. But jiffy lube cares nothing for your car or your wallet, they only care about the sale. again you don;t believe me try it out for your self!
