Norris Era Comes to End on C'ville City Council

December 16, 2013

Dave Norris attended his last Charlottesville City Council meeting as a council member on Monday.

The two-time former mayor has served the city for eight years. He was first elected to council in 2006.

Norris says some of his biggest accomplishments during that time center around increasing affordable housing, supporting the environment and developing youth facilities.

But he says you don't have to be an elected official to encourage change.

"You can make an impact for the better in whatever cause is important to you. I see it over and over again on city council where individuals come forward, take initiative and get things done. And that's what living in a community is all about -- working together to get things done," said Norris.

Though he chose not to seek reelection, Norris will remain active in the community.

He serves on the advisory boards for The Crossings and the Charlottesville Public Housing Association of Residents. He is also the president of the Charlottesville Winneba Foundation.
