The questions on this form are related to the draft Zoning Diagnostic + Approach Report, which is the first report produced for the Charlottesville zoning rewrite. If you have not yet reviewed this document, you can do so on the project website: https://cvilleplanstogether.com/zoning-plan/draft-approach/ 

If you prefer, you can also submit comments to the Project Team (including Charlottesville Neighborhood Development Services and the Consultant Team) at engage@cvilleplanstogether.com, or by using the website comment form.
  • The purpose of the Charlottesville zoning rewrite is to:
    • Ensure that the Zoning Ordinance supports the Comprehensive Plan (including the Future Land Use Map) and other adopted plans, such as Small Area Plans and the Affordable Housing Plan.
    • Mitigate the flaws and barriers to development previously identified by City planning staff, and elected and appointed officials, and other community members.
    • Create zoning that is easier for all to read, understand, and apply.
  • The Zoning Diagnostic + Approach Report is the first step in the zoning rewrite process. It identifies issues with the current Zoning Ordinance and establishes a proposed approach to the zoning rewrite.
  • The community review and comment period for the report will extend from June 16 through August 2022.
  • Please note that we have not yet developed a draft zoning map or draft zoning text. The Report outlines a proposed set of changes and the purpose of this event and the summer community comment period is to gather input on this approach before we share a draft zoning map and text for review.
There are four main sections in the report:
  1. Introduction: Background about the purpose for the zoning rewrite and the purpose for the report.
  2. Zone for Affordable Housing: Describes current issues related to housing affordability and a proposed approach to addressing housing affordability in the zoning rewrite.
  3. Residential District Testing: The intent of this section is to test types of infill residential development that would be contextually appropriate and feasible on typical existing lots. The next step in this process will be to create the new zoning districts to respond to the findings of this testing to implement the Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map.
  4. Better Zoning Standards: In addition to housing, a variety of other issues related to zoning surfaced in the preparation and adoption of the Comprehensive Plan. This section contains an analysis of current issues related to zoning standards and a proposed approach to addressing them.
At the end of sections 2, 3, and 4, you can find a summary of the recommendations from each of those sections. You can also review the Open House boards for a summary of the document. (These will be available on the project website following the June 27 Open House.)

There is also an Appendix at the end of the document with a glossary, an analysis of how well the current zoning addresses the Comprehensive Plan, and notes about how we intend to address the goals of the Comprehensive Plan and Affordable Housing Plan in the zoning rewrite process.

On this form, we are gathering feedback for each section of the Report. We want to know whether you would like any clarifications about what is being proposed, and whether you believe there are other ideas we should be considering to address each topic. 

Before you respond to the questions, we recommend that you review the  Zoning Diagnostic + Approach Report or the informational materials from the June 27 open house prior to completing the form. You can find the information at: https://cvilleplanstogether.com/zoning-plan/draft-approach/
