Visits to other places

The Chamber occasionally organizes and pays for trips to other communities. In October 2012, nineteen individuals traveled to Burlington, Vermont for a "journey of learning." They included Cheri Lewis of the Planning Commission, Mike Gaffney and Maurice Cox. Cox said a City Council meeting early in 2003 that Charlottesville could learn a lot from Burlington, and Richards said the community has a lot more power under Vermont law to mandate creation of affordable housing. However, Councilor Rob Schilling pointed out the Vermont city had a tax rate twice that of Charlottesville. [3]
