The Martha Jefferson neighborhood is a Charlottesville neighborhood around the old Martha Jefferson Hospital.

Hospital impacts

There was a study of the hospital's impact on the neighborhood in 1977. A Martha Jefferson Hospital Area Task Force issued a report in early 1991. This group recommending keeping B-1 zoning for the offices along Locust Avenue, but a minority of that group issued a differing opinion. Council adopted some of their recommendations on January 7, 1991. [1]

Later that year, Council considered an amendment to a special use permit to add one story to the hospital and a new one-story building. They approved this on May 6, 1991. [2]

On July 15, 1991, Council denied a request to convert the land use plan designation for six properties on Grove Avenue from business to residential. [3]

Historic district

In April 2010, the Martha Jefferson Neighborhood Association formally asked the city to designate the neighborhood as a historic district[4]. The district would include 125 structures along Locust, Lexington and Grove Avenues. During a meeting July 20, 2010, the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) unanimously voted to establish the Martha Jefferson Historic Conservation District. [5] The new designation calls for extra scrutiny any time a property owner wants to demolish a building or construct a new one.
