William Taylor Plaza Petition
On July 6th, the Charlottesville City Council chose to defer voting on a Marriot Fairfield Inn hotel and residential development on the corner of Cherry and Ridge Street. As a resident and taxpayer of the City of Charlottesville, I am exercising my right to petition City Council.
I do not support a hotel.
A hotel on this gateway property does not serve residents of the surrounding neighborhood, does not complement the neighborhood’s historic or environmental assets, does not activate the street and has not been presented to residents in context to the city’s Strategic Investment Area plan.
Council addresses this project again at their next meeting: July 20th.
I recommend City Council defer to the Planning Commission recommendation and REJECT the use of a hotel on this property and continue community engagement driven by the Ridge Street Neighborhood Association and residents.
(If you or someone you know would prefer signing the paper petition or if you support the project as stands, please Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
