“…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?

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

redoing the sign
The Boneyard recently painted signs on the east and southern sides of their building. Classic B&W, none of that color. Good job Boneyard! Five stars…

140511-park-poll
In May of this year the City took an informal poll on their website asking the public to rank trails.
The City lists the Rivanna River as its number one concern in the environmental
section of its state mandated “Comprehensive Plan”.
Currently, the floodplain next to the river is “zoned for business”.
Backfilling the land to a foot above base flood elevation and building a strip mall would be permissible.
There has been thumb-twiddling regarding establishing a riverine zoning overlay.
In October of 2013 the Woolen Mills Neighborhood requested that the City
make an inventory of the ecological, cultural and recreational assets extant in the
corridor. They couldn’t be bothered. Competition for dollars fierce,
more fire engines and electric vehicles to buy.

one of the more accessible sections of the trail system allowing for the circumambulation of Charlottesville.
The trail parallels the right bank of the Rivanna River for two miles,
terminating at Moores Creek at the base of Monticello Mountain.
