In 2022, the County completed Broadway Blueprint Phase 1, an economic revitalization study for the industrially zoned land adjacent to Broadway Street in Albemarle County, aka “Broadway”.The Phase 1 study identified three focus areas for future planning and analysis: economic vitality, connectivity, and placemaking.

To learn more about the outcomes from Phase 1, read the full study here.

Broadway Blueprint Phase 2 is an Implementation Study that will build on the findings from Phase 1 with a focus on the following goals:

  1. Create a blueprint for short-, medium-, and long-term implementation steps that support connectivity, placemaking, and economic vitality within Broadway.
  2. Leverage past investment, local interest, and economic opportunity within Broadway to further the County’s Economic Development Strategic Plan (Project ENABLE).
  3. Collaborate with the diverse community of stakeholders within and around Broadway including small business startups, local artisans, established businesses, property owners, neighboring County and City residents, and city officials and staff to draft recommendations that support the varied needs of the Broadway community.

This implementation study will contain three parts. The project is anticipated to take 12 months, with project kickoff in June 2023. Once scheduled, the opportunities for community engagement will be posted on the project website and the Albemarle County calendar.

The final deliverable is intended to be an actionable study that the County can use as a roadmap to guide future investment, policy decisions, and regulatory/zoning changes. The study focuses on physical improvements to improve placemaking and connectivity. It also will evaluate the potential mix of land uses while ensuring the primacy of industrial and employment uses within the corridor.
