Rivanna River Renaissance Conference remarks
Welcome to the County Office Building and to our Board chambers, where decades of Boards have enacted policies to support the preservation of the Rivanna River through zoning, planning, and engineering – and worked to enhance access, through parks, projects and programs.
Albemarle has several initiatives underway that we are looking forward to sharing with the community in the coming months including:
- the Joint City-County Rivanna River Corridor Study, which will look at revitalizing the river and enhancing access near Pantops
- a new riverfront park near the South Fork Reservoir Dam in the 29 North corridor
- enhanced trail access throughout the Rio corridor, and
- the redevelopment of the historic Woolen Mills area
You have an inspiring agenda and I look forward to 2 days of celebrating our river heritage – thanks to all of you for your continued commitment to the Rivanna River.
