What’s coming up in Charlottesville the week of 10/1

Each week, the news team takes a look at upcoming meetings and events in Charlottesville and Albemarle we think you should know about. Consider it a look into our datebook, and be sure to share newsworthy happenings, too.

  • The Charlottesville City Council meets at 7pm Monday in Council chambers. Among the agenda items: A final vote on the $255,850 skate park relocation; a report on the Green Dot Project, an effort to make it easier for lower-income city residents to start businesses; and final approval of the special use permit that would allow Black Market Moto Saloon to host live music events (city officials visited the bar last week for an in-person noise test).
  • The agenda for the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors meeting Wednesday, October 3 includes hearings on the expansion of a Three Notch’d Road preschool and the Free Union Baptist Church, as well as a couple of wireless tower approvals (read tomorrow’s C-VILLE for more on those!), a FY 2013 budget amendment, and a quarterly report from VDOT that will include updates on road projects and the county’s revenue sharing program.
  • On Thursday, October 4, the city hosts a free presentation on the “History of Free and Freed Blacks in Charlottesville/Albemarle” from 7 to 9pm. The look back at the contributions of African Americans to the area’s history is a joint effort of the History and Culture Action Team of Charlottesville’s Dialogue on Race, Celebrate!250 and The Burke Brown Steppe Chapter of the African-American History and Genealogy Society.
  • Also on Thursday is the second public planning meeting for several city-owned properties in the Meadow Creek stream valley, including a new parcel of parkland along the creek near Morton Drive. The meeting is at 6:30pm at Greenbrier Elementary School. Parks department officials are asking of input from the public on how best to use the land, which could eventually include trails and a recreational field.
