Background

In February 2014, City Council reaffirmed its commitment to creating complete streets for all users and adopted a resolution to consider the context surrounding the streets as part of any future street design process. As part of the resolution, Council directed staff to undertake the Streets That Work planning process that will reflect the understanding that streets serve a multitude of transportation, economic, social, recreational and ecological needs that must be considered when deciding on the most appropriate design.

What is the Streets That Work Plan?

The purpose of the Streets That Work Plan is to develop a fully functional, comprehensive, multi-modal street design guide for Charlottesville that seeks to improve the transportation network for all modes and create vibrant and sustainable public spaces along streets.

The Streets That Work Plan will focus primarily on the public right of way, but is being developed in conjunction with a city-wide code audit that will address regulations for private development.  

These concurrent processes share the same Guiding Principles to ensure that Charlottesville has High Quality Public Space and Vibrant Places of Commerce, as well as being: Safe and Accessible - Healthy, Green and Sustainable - Connected and Convenient - Collaborative - Policy Driven.
