The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC) was one of 45 awardees across the country selected for HUD’s a Regional Planning Grant out of 225 submissions. The project set out to develop a Livability Implementation Plan for the Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO Area. The process to develop this plan, referred to as the Livable Communities Planning Project (Livability Project), builds upon the region’s 1998 Sustainability Accords and other area planning documents to integrate cross-cutting strategies for land use, transportation, housing, economic vitality, air and water quality, and energy use. The Livability Project was launched in April 2011 in conjunction with the kick off to the Charlottesville & Albemarle County Comprehensive Plan and Long Range Transportation Plan updates.
