Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The first Working Group is actively meeting! Please see the sidebar to the right ('Meeting Materials') for agendas, presentations, and meeting minutes.

Working Group members share input with County staff on topics related to the AC44 Comprehensive Plan update process including engagement methods, draft materials, and recommendations. Working Group members also support community outreach efforts by sharing information with their networks, neighborhoods, and/or communities.

Working Group members:

  • Act as a sounding board on drafts of AC44 materials to ensure materials are clear, understandable, and accessible
  • Share input about the effectiveness of community engagement approaches
  • Share relevant lived experiences as residents of and/or visitors to Albemarle County
  • Share viewpoints from other members of the community with the Working Group and AC44 Team
  • Actively encourage participation, build relationships, and engage community members outside of regularly planned meetings and events (social media posts and sharing of County posts to interest groups)
  • Attend monthly Working Group meetings, learn about planning and development concepts, and review advance materials, as needed
