Planning Process

According to the City of Charlottesville's Website, there have been two public meetings so far about the design of the garden. The last one was on September 3rd, 2014. Closed meetings have continued since then between McIntire Botanical Garden's and City Staff.

Draft Memorandum of Understanding

On January 27th, City Staff drafted a memorandum of understanding which would guide the formal relationship between McIntire Botanical Garden and the City of Charlottesville.

Other botanical garden proposals

Charlottesville Botanical Garden is a competing non-profit organization with similar goals. At a McIntire Botanical Garden meeting held Aug. 28 2008, Lonnie Murray, a representative of that group, said he would be willing to merge the two groups[3].
