The Planning and Coordination Council (PACC) is a forum for planning at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, and Albemarle County. All three jurisdictions take turns hosting the meetings. Albemarle County is hosting the meetings in 2018.

PACC was formed so the City, County and the University would be able to collaborate on items of mutual interest located within Areas A, B and C. The regularly scheduled meetings afford all parties the opportunity to receive updates on what is happening in the City and County, i.e. guidelines and improvements and expectations for land that abuts all three entities PACC provides a platform where these matters can be brought forward, discussed and, if necessary, brought forward to the larger elected bodies as part of Comprehensive Plan adoptions.

The Planning & Coordination Council (PACC) was established in 1986 as part of the Three Party agreement to promote cooperation in planning and community development among the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the University of Virginia. PACC and PACCTech (precedes PACC meeting by one month) meetings are held quarterly and the coordination of those meetings is shared and rotated between the three governing bodies on a yearly basis. The membership of PACCTech and PACC changes on a yearly basis depending on local elections and committee appointments, and both meetings are open to the public. [2]

The group has been meeting since 1986. [3]
