Mr. Williams stated that he felt the City has <br />failed to adequately educate those will be affected by the <br />proposal. Mr. Williams stated that he believes the plan will <br />be detrimental to the City, will perpetuate discrimination in <br />housing, will segregate the schools, will hurt small building <br />contractors, will lock in property in R-2 and R-3 zones and <br />will continue a ghetto atmosphere in those zones, and will <br />make some R-lA neighborhoods off limits on the basis of race <br />and class. Mr. Williams asked that Council meet again with <br />the Planning Commission and staff to make sure they <br />understand the plan and requested that proper notification be <br />sent to all property owners who will be affected by the <br />change. <br /> <br /> Ms. Monica LeBeau of 621 Locust Avenue, expressed <br />concern about the planning process as exhibited by the Martha <br />Jefferson Hospital expansion issue at.the previous Planning <br />Commission meeting and made the following comments: there is <br />a lack of resources available to neighborhoods for dealing <br />with such issues; the special use permit criteria need to be <br />examined; the City needs to take a longer term view and <br />develop a twenty to thirty year plan; the joint public <br />hearing process does not provide an opportunity for Council <br />to publicly express their feelings. Ms. LeBeau questioned <br />what the limit is for growth on the current Martha Jefferson <br />Hospital site and recommended that a committee be appointed <br />to address the concerns regarding neighborhood advocacy. <br /> <br />APPOINTMENTS: BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS <br /> <br /> On motion by Ms. Waters, seconded by Mr. Vandever, Ms. <br />Kim Record was unanimously appointed to a four year term on <br />the Charlottesville Industrial ~evelopment Authority.
