History

In April 1948, City Council discussed acquiring property to connect Cherry Avenue through to Ridge Street. Councilors disagreed about the route. [4]

Cherry Avenue was zoned for mixed-use development in 2003[5], and is one of 14 mixed-use zoning districts (see List of Charlottesville zoning districts).

Small Area Plan

The Fifeville Neighborhood Association has been seeking a formal small-area plan to inform development in the community. Much of the road between Roosevelt Brown Boulevard and Ridge Street is zoned for mixed-use.

Members of the city planning commission took a tour of Cherry Avenue on June 28, 2016. [6]

The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission is conducting the plan for the city at a cost of $134,000. [7]

Developments

  • Atlas Projects is obtained a rezoning of land in the 900 block of King Street from single-family residential to the Cherry Avenue zoning. [8] City Council held its first reading of the rezoning on July 5, 2017. [9]
