Occasionally, against the odds, a street tree will grow to maturity in Charlottesville. This tree
at the corner of Nassau and Carlton, has thus far eluded the “right tree right place” police.
Does the City have an ordinance that requires private utilities to remove their poles from the sidewalk?
Adopted by City Council on Oct. 4, 2010
AMENDING AND REORDAINING SECTION 28-26 OF THE CODE OF THE CITY OF CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA, 1990, AS AMENDED,
RELATING TO THE DEPOSIT OF ICE AND SNOW ON PUBLIC RIGHTS-OF-WAY
BE IT ORDAINED by the Council of the City of Charlottesville, Virginia, that Section
28-26 of the Charlottesville City Code, 1990, as amended, is hereby amended and reordained, as follows:
Sec. 28-25. Removal of snow, sleet and ice from sidewalks.
(a) It shall be the duty of every owner and/or occupant of every house or lot which abuts or
fronts on, or is otherwise situated on, a paved sidewalk or walkway to have all snow removed from such
sidewalk or walkway within twenty-four (24) hours after the same has ceased falling.
This requirement shall exist whether or not an unpaved strip of publicly-owned property runs
between the paved sidewalk and the private property line and the words “abuts,” “fronts on,”
“otherwise situated on,” should be interpreted in accord with such requirement. The duty of snow removal
imposed on each owner and/or occupant by this section extends only to that portion of a particular paved
sidewalk or walkway which runs in front of that particular owner’s or occupant’s private property.
My grandfather, mom and grandmother returning to Pamlico Sound via Oregon Inlet. This the day where Pappy
taunted the fish. Inveighed against the fish, as ambassadors of the Sound, for failing to offer him up a real catch.
Shortly thereafter, trolling, he hooked into an Ursus americanus.
EG’s tribe gathered, from Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Washington State, Florida, Mexico, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Illinois,
from Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, Richmond, Warrenton, Marshall, Brooklyn, from the other side. Very sweet couple of days.
Train whistles, crows, a bluff over the James River, special grave dirt, wonderful clergy,
cellist from the Richmond Symphony.
Emma read a poem. Gary and Sam spoke to EG’s character, Ned, Weezie and Scott read from the Bible.
A MOTHER TO HER DAUGHTER
What will you take from me
For your wayfaring?
What shall I have to give
You would be sharing?
When you are lonely,
When your feet falter
You will need song.
Music to march by,
Silver and gold,
Fire for warming you
If it be cold;
These things will comfort you,
Carry you far
On the road you are going.
But if a star
Tempt you to follow,
Wings will be needed,
Wings for your flying,
These I have fashioned
From pinions of light,
Caught as they fell
From a swift bird in flight.
I give you for courage
A light heart that sings,
And I who have never flown,
Give you my wings.–Emma Gray Trigg
