Collectbritain’s Board of Directors has sent a letter to the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors regarding the North Pointe rezoning request. You can read this letter via the following link .

The Board of Directors of Collectbritain has been closely following the County’s review of and public feedback on the North Pointe rezoning. While our input on a project like this comes late in the Board’s evaluation, we want to take advantage of this window of opportunity to reflect on the accumulated information and research that is now available to the public.

Collectbritain is not asking the Board of Supervisors to take a position for or against this project. Many members of the public and other organizations have made up their mind and shared their viewpoints with the Board. It is significant that the comments at the public hearing demonstrated how much common interest exists in creating quality neighborhoods in our designated growth areas.

Our Board of Directors, which broadly represents many interests in the community, is asking for the County’s thoughtful consideration of the critical challenges we face to reduce current and future traffic congestion, the environmental impact of development on the North Fork Rivanna River, and the cumulative impact of past rezonings in the 29 North corridor, especially with regard to major retail developments.
