Our goal is to undo the racism meted out through zoning, land use, and housing policy for the last two centuries by forcing the Charlottesville city to:

  • Upzone historically exclusionary neighborhoods near essential resources
  • Incorporate anti-displacement policies in the housing policy specifically to protect historically Black neighborhoods from gentrification
  • Enact the strongest mandatory inclusionary zoning ordinance in the state.

Currently Charlottesville is considering a Future Land Use Map and Zoning Rewrite that would support these objectives but there is some opposition.

You can learn more by checking out the City of Charlottesville’s website on the plan and this excellent op-ed by Carmelita Wood.

Please download, print, and display the sign (links above) in your home or office window to show support for this effort. We want everyone to see that there is broad support for these policies.
