In a work session the Albemarle County Planning Commission discussed the Charlottesville Woolen Mills property. Seems like they get it. The buildings and the location are a treasure.

Since 2003, Streamwatch has been monitoring the health of Rivanna River watershed streams. Invariably, Moores Creek earns the “very poor” designation.
