MATTERS BY THE PUBLIC
Mr. Paul Long, 1410 Grady Ave., said he is dismayed that the newly announced revised
CAT routes will deny public access to many citizens.
Mr. Brandon Collins, 418 Fairway Ave., said PHAR is eagerly awaiting the CRHA report
from the City Manager this evening. PHAR supports the idea of greater City involvement with
the Housing Authority. Structural problems with the Housing Authority must be addressed
before we can talk about redevelopment.
Ms. Deirdre Gilmore, 1000 Preston Ave., thanked Mr. Norris and Ms. Holly Edwards for
all the work they have done on housing, especially the BankOn and reentry programs. She
thanked Mr. Norris for taking a lot of homeless people off the streets with the SRO building. She
told Mr. Fenwick she hopes we can count on him for support for reentry programs.
3
Mr. Larry Jones, 301 Middleton Ln., said parking on Middleton Lane is a problem. Only
seven cars can fit on the block.
Ms. Lillie Williams, PO Box 866, Charlottesville resident, on behalf of Chihamba,
announced the 25th Annual African-American Cultural Arts Festival in July. She asked Council
to extend an invitation to our sister city in Winneba, Ghana for the event.
Ms. Janice Jones, 301 Middleton Ln., seconded her husband's plea for additional parking
on Middleton Lane.
Ms. Jeanne Chase, 223 Old Lynchburg Rd., thanked Mr. Norris for seeing citizens through
the completion of the Old Lynchburg Road project. She said there are two properties that will be
affected by parking changes on Middleton Lane.
Mr. Thomas Daniel, 826 Colridge Dr., spoke on raising cigarette tax in the City. He said he
has done many medical procedures due to health problems with smokers.
Mr. Randy Page, 1401 Wellford St., said we should reconsider the YMCA, especially in
light of the many changes that have taken place since approval by a slim margin. He supports the
YMCA, but the City is making a mistake by locating it in McIntire Park.
Ms. Maryfrances Porter, Executive Director for Region 10, gave Council an overview of
Region 10 services in the past year. She said the City's financial support is critical to ensure they
can provide care for the most vulnerable members of our community. Transportation is also an
issue; they requested Council's support for implementing safe pedestrian measures.
Dr. David Moody, 1545 Old Oaks Dr., Medical Director at Region 10, said he is here to
emphasize Region Ten's psychiatric services, which have become a very important part of their
program. He said expanding needs are not being met with increased ability to provide additional
services.
Mr. Joseph Bostock, 114 Lankford Ave., Apt. 7, said we need additional support for
emergency services for Region Ten. He also asked for more buses on Sundays.
Mr. Robert Johnson, Executive Director of Region Ten, said they are going through a lot of
transformation. They are working on becoming a "health home", which will allow them to
provide more services than they have in past years.
COUNCIL RESPONSE
Ms. Szakos said we support Chihamba, and we will invite our friends from Ghana to
attend. She supported efforts to reduce teen smoking and believes we should do this regardless of
whether Albemarle County supports the initiative.
4
Mr. Norris said he fully supports a cigarette tax, but he does not believe Albemarle County
is permitted to increase cigarette tax. He would like to increase the percentage that goes towards
smoking cessation program support. He asked staff to follow up on parking at Middleton Lane.
Mr. Jones asked Mr. Tolbert to speak to the matter. Mr. Tolbert explained that we will not
change the parking at that location. The signs were erected to elicit opinions, and based on
feedback there will be no change to parking in that area.
Mr. Norris thanked Region Ten for the wonderful services they provide. Ms. Smith agreed.
Ms. Galvin said we need to talk more aggressively with our counterparts in the County
about opportunities for a regional transportation network.
Mr. Huja said he met with a group about the cigarette tax, and he supports the increase tax
in order to discourage youth smoking and increase City revenues for education and other
important needs.
Ms. Szakos announced the next transit meeting will take place on December 28 for new
bus routes that will go into effect on Saturday, January 4.

PUBLIC HEARING / RESOLUTION: Authorize Lease Agreement for 608 Ridge Street
Authorize Lease Agreement for 608 Ridge Street
Ms. McHugh presented to Council on the authorization of the lease agreement at 608 Ridge
Street. Staff proposes to continue the current lease until June 30, 2014, at which time LEAP may
move into the basement portion of the building. There are some issues that are being worked out
with the current tenant due to canines living in the basement.
Ms. Galvin asked if the rent of $400/month for the basement apartment is at market rate.
Ms. McHugh said we did not do a comparison based on size.
On motion, the public hearing was opened. Having no speakers, the hearing was closed.
Ms. Szakos said it worries her to take an affordable unit out of circulation because of our
need for workforce housing. Ms. Smith said we may want to revise the lease to say no pets due
to the current issues.
Ms. Galvin said she wonders why Council is being asked to subsidize the rent if LEAP
feels it needs to expand but does not have the resources. They should go through the ABRT
process so they can pay the $400/month rent increase. Ms. McHugh said they are not expanding
but need additional space because staff is cramped in the current area.
6
Mr. Norris said LEAP is serving a wider area than they originally were.
The resolution was moved by Mr. Norris and seconded by Ms. Smith. Ms. Szakos asked if
they would accept an amendment to keep the basement as an apartment. Ms. Galvin said it
sounds like they need the space. We should allow them to expand, then keep the rent at the $400
level. Ms. Szakos asked if we could put the extra $200 in the Housing Fund. Mr. Huja said that
is a conversation for another time. Ms. Galvin said we should amend the resolution to read
$1,000 - commencing on July 1. Mr. Norris and Ms. Smith accepted Ms. Galvin's amendment.
The resolution passed as amended. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Ms. Smith, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms.
Szakos; Noes: None.)
PUBLIC HEARING / RESOLUTION: Lease Agreement for Cellular Equipment at
Market Street Parking Garage
Lease Agreement for Cellular Equipment at Market Street Parking Garage
Mr. Engel presented to Council and explained the proposal from Cellco Partnership to
install antennas and associated radio equipment on the Market Street Parking Garage property.
Ms. Smith asked if there are health implications associated with the proposed equipment.
Mr. John Cooper, representing Verizon Wireless, said there are health requirements, and their
unit meets those requirements.
On motion, the public hearing was opened. Having no speakers, the hearing was closed.
On motion by Ms. Szakos, seconded by Ms. Galvin, the resolution passed unanimously.
(Ayes: Mr. Norris, Ms. Smith, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms. Szakos; Noes: None.)
Mr. Norris said this is going to generate $9,000/year for the City.
REPORT: State of the City Address
Mr. Huja presented a State of the City Address, reviewing the past year. A copy of the
presentation is available on the City’s website.
ORDINANCE: Sale of Kenwood Lot (2nd reading)
Ms. McHugh presented to Council. The current ordinance is to sell to the Scott/Wood
family. Mr. Daly and Mr. Brown provided clarification for Council on the 10' pipe stem
easement. Mr. Huja asked if this provides enough space to accommodate construction vehicles.
Mr. Daly said it depends on the size of the vehicle. City-owned maintenance vehicles would be
able to access the area.
Mr. Huja suggested amending the ordinance to provide 20' pipe stem access easements and
accordingly reduce the price of the lot by that square footage rate. The money should go to the
7
recreation fund. Ms. Szakos asked staff about the need for more than 10'. She said she is
concerned about steep slopes issues in connection with increasing the easement to 20'.
Ms. Smith seconded Mr. Huja's motion.
Ms. Galvin asked if there is an option to require an accessory unit as a condition of sale.
Mr. Scott, the recommended purchaser, was invited forward to speak. He said providing an
accessory unit is possible.
In response to an inquiry from Ms. Smith, Mr. Brown explained that a lot of record is
exempt from the steep slopes requirement, provided you locate the house in an area where there
are no steep slopes if possible.
Ms. Galvin made a further amendment to make an accessory unit a condition of sale. Mr.
Norris seconded Ms. Galvin's amendment.
Mr. Norris asked if we could change the easement to a 15' pipe stem, leaving the price asis,
so as not to overcrowd the lot.
Mr. Brown reminded Council that they cannot force occupancy of the accessory unit.
Ms. Riddervold said there is a storm water structure at the street, and it may be blown out
because of water coming off the street and running down the hill. There may be room for
opportunity to put in some stabilizing material. Staff could come up with some strategies to
ameliorate the issues at this location.
Mr. Huja withdrew his motion for a 20' pipe stem. Mr. Norris moved to change the
easement to accommodate a 15’ pipe stem; Ms. Smith seconded.
Mr. Scott said the water meter and sewer set-up will have to be moved.
The motion to amend the easement to accommodate a 15’ pipe stem passed. (Ayes: Mr.
Norris, Ms. Smith, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin; Noes: Ms. Szakos.)
The motion to amend the ordinance to require an accessory unit passed. (Ayes: Mr. Norris,
Ms. Smith, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin; Noes: Ms. Szakos.)
Ms. Smith reminded staff of the amendment that proceeds go to Parkland Acquisition.
Ms. Szakos moved that staff reconfigure the two parcels so that there is a 15’ wide access
pipe stem to the park. Mr. Norris seconded. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms.
Szakos; Noes: Ms. Smith.)
Council voted on the ordinance as amended. The ordinance passed. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Mr.
Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms. Szakos; Noes: Ms. Smith.)

REPORT City Market/Mixed-Use Development Proposal
City Market/Mixed-Use Development Proposal
Mr. Engel presented to Council on the proposals to develop the current City Market.
Ms. Galvin said it is important to emphasize urban design principles as part of the RFP.
She submitted suggested revisions to reflect this. Mr. Engel said we can emphasize this in the
guiding principle.
Mr. Norris said he is not convinced the development community can come back with
something that will work, but he is willing to test the idea. If we cannot make this work, he
hopes Council will consider going with Option 1 and create a public plaza.
Council voted to support the RFP unanimously. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin,
Ms. Szakos, Ms. Smith; Noes: None.)
REPORT: Charlottesville Redevelopment & Housing Authority Review
Charlottesville Redevelopment & Housing Authority Review
Mr. Jones presented to Council on his review of the CRHA over the last few months. He
reviewed activities over the past year that have increased the relationship between the City and
the CRHA. Areas of concern include financial outlook, resident relations, facilities maintenance,
procurement, human resources, board development, public safety, and redevelopment.
Mr. Jones reviewed his recommendations for Council, which are detailed in the memo
contained in the Council materials.
Mr. Norris thanked Mr. Jones and his staff for their dedication to this issue. He said the
CRHA does not have development capabilities right now. We should put RAD on the
backburner and get the Charlottesville Development Corporation (CDC) off the ground. He is
concerned about having the Council serve as the Housing Authority board. He is also concerned
with the idea of drawing money from the Housing Fund in order to cover operating costs
associated with CRHA. The purpose of the fund is strictly to grow affordable housing stock. He
appreciated the direction Mr. Jones is taking this conversation.
Ms. Szakos asked if we invited the CRHA Director and Board to attend this presentation.
Mr. Jones said they were aware of it. She said she was startled at the magnitude of the shrinkage
of the CRHA staff, and she believes some of the problems with organization and communication
can be attributed to this. We do need to put more money into the Housing Fund, and we should
examine this issue during the budget cycle.
9
Ms. Galvin said the CRHA used to be a robust agency, and we really do not have an
agency that does redevelopment any longer. She does not see how the CDC will be able to
address best practices in the resident services industry.
Ms. Smith said she was shocked to see the frequency of repair calls. She asked if there is a
fundamental problem with efficiency. She does not want to see the City invest in an already
broken system. There are pros and cons to the options on the table. She thanked Mr. Jones for
the great information.
Mr. Huja said he is pleased we have begun the discussion. He agreed with Mr. Norris that
daily management should not be delegated to the Council. He said we need staff. The most
important thing is quality of housing. He suggested holding a work session.
Ms. Smith said we need more information on whether Section 8, RAD, or public housing is
the most viable long-term option.
Mr. Huja asked if we can set a deadline for June 30 to get the items Mr. Jones outlined
accomplished. Mr. Jones said this would be suitable and agreed that a work session would allow
for a deeper analysis.
RESOLUTION: Water Resources Protection Program Fee Waiver and Incentive
Policy
Water Resources Protection Program Fee Waiver and Incentive Policy
Mr. Dan Sweet presented an update on the WRPP to Council.
Mr. David Bulova, with AMEC Environmental Infrastructure, presented to Council on the
proposed stormwater credit policy and incentive program. He gave an overview of the program,
reviewed key policy discussion points and provided clarifications for Council.
Mr. Norris asked why the start date for evaluating implementation was July 1, 2009. Mr.
Bulova said 2009 is when the Chesapeake Bay program ran the model and established a baseline.
Ms. Smith asked if we can be assured new developments are being managed to the
requirements. Mr. Bulova said all facilities will be inspected, and credits provide an incentive
for owners to maintain their properties. Ms. Smith asked if it is possible for anyone to get 100%
of their fee waived. The consultants replied that the maximum fee will be the greater of 90% or
100% minus one billing year. Ms. Smith asked why an advisory council was not formed sooner.
Ms. Riddervold said one of the conditions of the utility being launched was the approved credits
component. The committee was programmatic in nature, and not tasked with developing the
building blocks of the program.
On motion by Ms. Szakos, seconded by Ms. Galvin, the resolution was adopted as
presented. (Ayes: Ms. Smith, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms. Szakos; Noes: Mr. Norris.)
10
REPORT: Homeowner Assistance with Stormwater Utility Fees
Homeowner Assistance with Stormwater Utility Fees
Mr. Brown said staff is looking for guidance on mechanisms and criteria to assist
homeowners in paying their fee when assistance is necessary. Mr. Brown recommended Council
use this as a year to learn who uses this and who does not, and determine future need based on
this information. Staff's recommendation is to use existing guidelines from the CHAP and Real
Estate Tax Relief programs.
Mr. Huja said Council supports this and asked staff to come back with a resolution for a
vote at an upcoming meeting.
RESOLUTION: Transfer of Funds from Capital Improvement Program
Contingency for the Context Sensitive Street Design Funding Appropriation -
$300,000
Transfer of Funds for the Context Sensitive Street Design Funding Appropriation
Mr. Huja asked if Council was amenable to rescheduling this report for a future meeting.
This is not a time-sensitive report. Ms. Galvin said this is a complex issue with three major
facets. Ms. Smith said Council needs a presentation on the Context Sensitive Street Design
report.
The report was deferred to the second meeting in January. Ms. Szakos asked if we can
have a presentation of the costs and Complete Streets 101 in the near future. Mr. Tolbert said we
can do this with one-on-one meetings.
Ms. Smith asked for some aspects of the resolution to be separated, such as the time line.
RESOLUTION: Allocation of Charlottesville Housing Funds for Development of
Property at 991 5th Street S.W. - $350,000
Allocation of Charlottesville Housing Funds for Development of Property at 991 5th Street
Ms. McHugh presented to Council. The City has been working with Charlottesville
Abundant Life Ministries (CALM) to help purchase property and determine how to best develop
this site by providing planning grant and technical assistance. In order to satisfy funding
requirements for HUD, we must close out this project immediately.
Mr. Huja clarified that he is not paid for his service on the board and does not believe he
has any conflict on this matter.
11
Mr. Rydell Payne, Executive Director of Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries, said we
would like to see some of those families work with those homes. The goal is for residents who
currently live there be able to afford to buy them in the future.
Mr. Dan Rosensweig, Executive Director of Habitat, said providing a mixed income is
what the market will bear in terms of 20-25%. He explained their design plans.
Mr. Norris said it is too late to drop this project at this time; we should stay true to the
vision CALM has had all along. Mr. Norris moved to approve the resolution. Mr. Huja
seconded. Ms. Smith requested an amendment stating that to the greatest extent possible, current
residents of the Prospect Avenue community shall be given access to purchasing these homes.
Mr. Norris and Mr. Huja accepted the amendment. Ms. Galvin said she would like to see a
phasing plan.
The resolution was adopted with the noted amendment. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Ms. Smith, Mr.
Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms. Szakos; Noes: None.)
RESOLUTION: Transfer of Funds from Capital Improvement Program
Contingency for the Synchro Project - $300,000
Transfer of Funds from Capital Improvement Program Contingency for the Synchro Project
Mr. Tolbert presented to Council. Staff has learned that VDOT will not let the City join the
project they are doing in Albemarle County because of funding source issues.
Ms. Szakos said the increased price tag makes this less attractive, but this is still an
important project.
Ms. Galvin said our citizens are concerned about intersection safety and street design, not
light synchronization. Mr. Tolbert said the better traffic moves in these high volume areas, the
better our neighborhood streets will move. Cut-through traffic will be reduced.
Mr. Huja said this is a minor amount of money compared to what we could be spending on
highway improvements.
Ms. Galvin said since there is no longer urgency, we should defer a decision on this until
the budget process.
Ms. Smith asked how VDOT expects this project to be successful if it all stops at
Hydraulic.
Ms. Szakos moved allocating the additional $300,000 on the condition that we do it in the
same contract as VDOT and the county project. Mr. Huja seconded the motion. Ms. Smith said
this does not address garnering county funds. A vote was note called for. Council decided to
table this until staff can further discuss our options with VDOT.
12
RESOLUTION: YMCA Ground Lease - Extension of Deadline for Construction
YMCA Ground Lease - Extension of Deadline for Construction
Mr. Brown presented to Council. The YMCA has submitted a letter for an extension until
January 15, 2015. Council must decide if the YMCA has shown good cause for requesting the
extension, and if so, if there is a good reason not to grant the extension.
Ms. Smith asked for an explanation of the YMCA's funding situation. Mr. Kurt Krueger,
Chairman of the YMCA, explained the history of their funding delays and why they occurred.
Ms. Smith asked what would happen if the YMCA cannot secure funding. Mr. Krueger
said they are offering personal guarantees. She asked what risk the City is taking. Mr. Krueger
said if they fail to operate the building for a certain period of time, they are in default, at which
time the City can terminate the ground lease and will acquire the building.
On motion by Ms. Szakos, seconded by Ms. Galvin, the motion to extend the lease by one
year was granted. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms. Szakos; Noes: Ms. Smith.)
REPORT: SPCA Annual Update (Written Report Only - no presentation)
SPCA Annual Update
REPORT: Region 10 Update (Written Report Only - no presentation)
Region 10 Update
OTHER BUSINESS
Mr. Norris said Mr. Ghartey has asked that the City donate a flag with the City seal on it so
the winners of the annual Ghana festival can display the City flag. The motion passed
unanimously. (Ayes: Mr. Norris, Mr. Huja, Ms. Galvin, Ms. Szakos, Ms. Smith; Noes: none.)
MATTERS BY THE PUBLIC
Mr. Louis Shultz, 1809 E. Market St., said this is the sixth time he has come to Council
about Steephill Street. He said he will not go away until Council addresses his issues.
Meeting adjourned.
