plethora of devices

Once upon a time Journalists had to ask questions and photograph, now the job description includes blow by blow tweeting.



breaking down folling presser

Often we see television journalists skyping from conflict zones, but when news originates at home big gear is still de rigueur.

Conclusion
Based on the information known to investigators at this time, we find no substantive basis of fact to conclude that an incident occurred that is consistent with the facts as described in the November 19, 2014, Rolling Stone Magazine article.
The department’s investigation cannot rule out that something may have happened to “Jackie” somewhere and at some time on the evening of September 28, 2012. Yet, without additional evidence we are simply unable to reach a definitive conclusion.
This investigation remains open, yet suspended in the event additional evidence should come to light.–CPD (full statement is available)

Thursday edge of Water

In the 48 hours between Tuesday and Thursday the city had the trees cleared.



multimodal path City walk

The City is hoping to establish an off road, 10 foot wide multi-modal path between downtown and Meade Park in the Woolen Mills. The path and the fence (to keep pedestrians off the railroad tracks) have been planned for years. This is a section of the path and fence adjacent to “City Walk”. The scarified area pictured above will receive treatment similar to this in City Walk in the coming months.

How best to handle the commons, the City owned right of way throughout town, 156 miles of street?
Tomorrow, the City is holding a community engagement event for the “Streets That Work” project that will address this and other questions related to streets.
Be there!

Streets that Work Public Input Meeting – Saturday December 13, 2014
City staff invites the public to be a part of the process and come out to its Streets that Work Public Input Meeting. Please join us on Saturday, December 13 from 8:00 am – 11:30 am at the Carver Recreation Center Gymnasium to share your ideas and join the conversation.

“…built as an addition to a small mid-nineteenth century frame house on Riverdale Drive
in Charlottesville for Minnie M. Barnes in 1912. The addition features rock-faced concrete
block quoins, a concrete block foundation and a tetrastyle portico without
capitals or bases.”- K. Edward Lay

For over a century this house sat on a bluff of the Rivanna, facing east toward
the Free Bridge. It has been torn down in the last few days. What next for this
lot at the eastern entrance of Charlottesville? A drug store?
