The Charlottesville Police Department held a press conference at 2:00 pm Monday, March 23rd at CitySpace located at 100 5th Street NE, Charlottesville, VA.
The purpose of this press conference was to provide the media and public with the results of the investigation into an alleged sexual assault at the University of Virginia that was reported in Rolling Stone magazine in the fall of 2014.
Chief Longo addressed the assembled news folk and took questions.
Once upon a time Journalists had to ask questions and photograph, now the job description includes blow by blow tweeting.
Often we see television journalists skyping from conflict zones, but when news originates at home big gear is still de rigueur.

Tuesday this was the south edge of Water Street
In the 48 hours between Tuesday and Thursday the city had the trees cleared.
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.
