“Building a Sustainable Charlottesville”

The Facilities Development Division of Public Works is responsible for the efficient and cost effective planning, design and construction of projects related to the approximately 50 City-owned public buildings and 9 City School buildings. Facilities Development leads the City’s efforts associated with all new capital construction and development, facility renovations, expansion of facilities and major repairs. In addition to the City’s portfolio of government buildings, including City Hall and City Hall Annex, our oversight includes the City’s libraries, fire stations, parks & recreation facilities (including aquatic facilities), court facilities, transit facilities, parking garages, and all school campuses (6 elementary schools, 1 upper elementary school, 1 middle school & 1 high school).

Facilities Development is also directly responsible for a number of buildings which are jointly owned with Albemarle County. This includes the Health Department Building, the Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court Complex on High Street, and CATEC (Charlottesville-Albemarle Technical Education Center) to name just a few.

Similar to the Public Works Department as a whole, the principal mission of Facilities Development is to responsibly manage the City’s public infrastructure for our community’s current and future generations.
