VA needs to get on BOARD! It is COSTING VA money to keep weed illegal in VA when they could be making literal MILLIONS in tax revenue to use towards public education, affordable housing and more.

This should be a litmus test for every Commonwealth's Attorney candidate this fall
Civilizations have been smoking the flower since forever! We get a government and it becomes illegal. Stupid thing is ,and I say this with confidence, 50% or more Americans already take a toke , of course some people don't inhale!!
So the only reason is because of 'the disparate impact on African Americans and people and communities of color.' Gotcha! Based on this reasoning, murder should be legal...
Virginia should have look at all the money on revenues we missing out
And where is the affordable housing? I'll bet Architect could put double affordable housing in the same place. Anyone think of that?
I'll believe it when I see it, and I do agree with the affordable housing idea above - I just won't hold my breath on anything getting done with it anytime soon
How about build more stuff for the kids so they can have more fun stuff to do. A Chuck E. Cheese, fun land or something 🤦🏽♀️
The city isnt interested in building affordable housing, our youth or the city's history. Everyone open your eyes...Ridge St, Main st, downtown 29. All areas that are being developed and none of it for those that live and work in this city. And don't give me that BS about adding jobs because people cant live off of a 7.25 housekeeping job.
Does anyone really believe that?
How awesome for THE ELITE FEW that will get to enjoy it. 🙄
Y'all need a Bypass around Charlottesville. I don't stop in that liberal cesspool.
Well, that's some information alright... "Dewberry group has listed this property under its ‘Living’ section, where it was previously classified in their ‘Hospitality’ section." Seriously news worthy.🙄
Charlottesville has become a socioeconomic version of Logan's Run...
Of course it is
Because Cville really needs more luxury apartments.... 👀
Does reclassifying it as residential mean that it will have to go through rezoning and more planning and approvals? If so, this is probably a ploy by the developer to buy more time.
Probably forrrrrr.....$1800 per month (1 bedroom)smh...😞
As said before, there is no affordable housing and if so, its for ages 55 and up unless you want to live at "Friendship" Court
Don’t they still have some luxury condos vacant downtown ? Really why can’t we have a vertical garden or an art museum or a giant haunted house . Something freakin cool !
Linze Struiksma -That would be an amazing place to live!
If you think this city should build affordable housing on the downtown mall...you're delusional. The property value alone would make your head spin.
Good news. Such an eyesore.
What? But this city is crying for affordable housing. WTH?
Or you mean for the people that can afford it right .. how exciting
10 years of doing nothing with the building is a long time to be an eyesore. When so many other construction projects have gone up and around this one and didn't take long to build. Example : Hotels, Student housing and many other UVA types of projects. Hmmm...
Wonder what happened with this developer that this has been allowed to be an unfinished project for so long. I did hear something about Bankrupcy over the years but, don't know if it was this developer or a previous one. So sad either way. C-Villd does need more affordable housing so i hope some is regulated/ available to them with this project like any other places in C-Ville new builds or Existing one's.
I’m guessing this is some tactic to avoid the rule that the hotel must be completed by 2020 or he has to sell. I suspect he is resetting the clock. I’ll eat my hat if he makes it into luxury apartments.
People seem to forget this is a privately owned property. The fact the city is clamoring for affordable housing plays no bearing on what this private owner needs to do. The whole time Inhave lived in C'ville people have complained about this eye sore. Who cars of it's a hotel or apartments, just get it finished and looking good.

One part time staff member won’t help. Ride on the road, and wear a helmet to avoid scrambling your head. Not difficult.
Some will put out an eye with this.
There has to come a time where only certain vehicles can be on our roads scooters don’t belong on the highways
Maybe 4 year college students need to go to tech school before they attempt a scooter.

I've been clipped twice by people on these stupid Birds! Still have bruises on my left shoulder and I was walking down the sidewalk at 4pm on Main street.
They have to GO!
I've almost hit a few of these fools while riding my bike.
Bottom safety line: they are dangerous without helmets and dangerous for pedestrians on sidewalks. Who'd have thunk!?
And this comes as a surprise???
All they need to do is learn how to ride one and do it properly.
I've had them look like they loose control trying to jump it up on a sidewalk and one almost crashed right into my car!! I was so mad
More lawsuits against the city for promoting a public safety hazard! Injury lawsuits!
Xaviera Gray 😂😂😂
It's a good idea gone wrong and misused. When people observe these running red lights, Driving on sidewalks, sitting in ADA ramps and many more issues then the public are going to be against these scooters. Some people do use them properly but most just don't care.
Does anyone know what you have to do to get one of these “scooters” (which are just glorified skateboards 🙄)?
I don’t know what genius in Charlottesville came up with this idea... but whoever you are... you are f’ing BRILLIANT!
Way to go Cville! Once again, showing your “elitism”. You all have got these people all figured out and they don’t even know it! Keep up the good work! Or uh... working for the “greater good”.

What would prosecuters investigate?? No formal charges have ever been filed against Fairfax.
He should fight for his day in court, if he steps down so should trump
These women NEED to be held accountable. Why did they wait 20 plus years, and come one after another??? Fairfax should have them brought up on charges of libel and slander, make them take a lie detector test ! ! ! AT their own expense if they are lying !!! Remember, Judge Kavanaugh was proven innocent when his accusers admited they lied !!!

I honestly will believe it when I see it, just like when they said that the park would close back in 2016. Promises, promises, promises... Families struggled for years, and they were fed promises too. Talk is cheap.
Affordable? What is your definition of affordable? My definition of affordable is a place that people who work full time minimum wage jobs can live without spending more then 1/3 of their take home pay per month on rent/mortgage payments.

I thought southwood was already affordable housing .. trailers are cheap 🤔
The place needs cleaned up the houses are in very unfortunate shape trailers don’t last like houses do. This should be a positive thing to help the community of South Wood. Also I do a route there and not one of the houses I deliver to are “Mexican” many different people live there including elderly white folks that need better housing. Be a part of the solution here!
I don’t have a problem with this, housing in Cville and Albemarle Co is a nightmare, but various groups have been talking about doing something with south wood since the new covenant school campus was built over there and it’s always talk that gets tied up in bureaucratic red tape so I’m skeptical anything will actually happen with it 🙄 I mean, even building a large private school over there did nothing to improve the area! 🤦♀️

Wtf is wrong with these dudes if they that desperate go buy a blow up doll,leave these kids alone
WVIR NBC29....I understand that this mugshot may have been provided to you by the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office. However, it doesn’t mean you cannot blur out the logo on his shirt. He may have been employed by the YMCA, but this horrible incident had nothing to do with the YMCA or the YMCA Summer Camp. Imagine if a WVIR NBC29 employee was arrested for a committing the same unthinkable crime...would you post a picture on your website of that employee wearing a shirt with a large WVIR NBC29 logo on it? Please consider how this photo could create an unnecessary negative image within the public’s mind and how that image could impact the reputation of the YMCA and the YMCA Summer Camp. The same goes for any future pictures you choose to include within any/all of your public communication, where a business or a person may be negatively impacted by the photo you choose. If that’s the only photo you have available to use, simply blur out the unnecessary part of the picture and move forward with what you have.
And the nerve to have a YMCA shirt on smh
This is what the "NEWS" likes to do .Stir our minds to work.They knew this would cause comment .. (So don't comment !!!!!!)

You still don’t want to accept the fact that Bellamy was a key player/instigator.
Everyone knows how it started.... the self proclaimed KING! Wes Bellamy started it. The violence, 4 hate groups, and 3 people dead are on him. Their blood is on his hands. Don’t be making excuses for him! As well as costing the city $1000’s and hurting the downtown mall businesses because no one wants to come to or support Charlottesville anymore.
Vox hasn't had a very good two weeks.
Hot spot for race baiters.
That’s pretty simple so do not sugar coat and push it off on any other than Wes Bellamy!!
Another social justice warrior ignoring fact to perpetuate a racist narrative! The answer is/was Wes Bellamy and a horrible City Council! They created the platform and formula for civil unrest! The violence was ANTIFA, BLM, and white supremacist! Not solely one entity like the fake news media continues to parrot 🦜!
Easy answer don’t erase history
Educate yourselves on where Antifa and BLM get their money and it will answer a lot of questions.
Yeah, what about the domestic terrorism group ANTIFa? Forgot to mention that they were also in attendance didn't ya. Unite the right is not a white supremacist group nor do they claim to be.
All you have to do is look at the City Council. Bellamy is the True Racist in all of it.
They just keep playing this asinine race game. Most of what has been alleged was fantasy but I guess urban legend coming up.
Where was Bellamy discussed, so much analytical integrity
Guess what? Jason Kessler was the scape goat on the unite the right movement in Charlottesville. But, as I we look into all involved. We find that Jason Kessler is a Obama supporter in 2008.

Look what’s going on in the town now. Democrat take over corruption happening as we speak. Nazis propaganda working for democrats. Crooks all!
