Citizens of Charlottesville and Albemarle County say the top three things they'd like to see the city and county plan for the future are limiting rural development, more bike facilities and encouraging sustainability.
After a questionnaire was sent out to residents in the city and county, both planning commissions will have a joint meeting on Tuesday to go over the results and set mutual goals.
"Residents of the county have been very supportive of preserving rural areas and preserving farmland," said Dan Rosensweig, vice chair of the City Planning Commission. "And in the city, we want to grow sustainably in a smart way. What's new is that, we're starting to realize that our destinies are extremely linked."
The meeting will take place Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Albemarle County Office Building.
