City Council Meetings Resume in Council Chambers on Monday, April 18th
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Charlottesville City Council will return to in-person meetings with limited public seating and virtual access maintained for the April 18th meeting. The 4:00pm Council Work Session will be in-person and limited to City Council members only, with virtual access available for the public. The 6:30pm Council Meeting will be in-person in Council Chambers with up to 23 pre-registered members of the public and 2 media representatives along with the Interim City Manager, Clerk of Council, and City Attorney in the gallery.
Public participation is based on observance of social distancing and mask wearing is strongly encouraged. All formal presentations will be done virtually. Two microphone stands will be set for public comment to occur by those in Council Chambers. Virtual public comments will be managed by City Communications staff as normal.
In an effort to keep everyone safe, and due to the small size of Council Chambers, we will maintain this meeting approach while the emergency order is in place. At this time, this is the only meeting permitted to resume in-person, but discussions are underway regarding other meetings resuming in CitySpace.
