Share Your Thoughts, UVA Affordable Housing Initiative

In April 2021, the University publicly launched its Affordable Housing Initiative, beginning work to support the development of 1,000 to 1,500 affordable housing units over a decade on land in Charlottesville and Albemarle that is owned by UVA and the UVA Foundation. A summary of early community input on the project is available on the Affordable Housing Community Input page. We are committed to ongoing community engagement throughout the project, and we welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

In December 2021, the University announced that three properties in in Charlottesville and Albemarle that are owned by the University or the UVA Foundation were selected as sites proposed for affordable housing development: 1. a parcel located at Wertland and 10th Streets, 2. the current location of UVA's Piedmont Apartments off Fontaine Avenue, and 3. portions of North Fork, a Discovery Park on US 29 North. These parcels are not currently being considered for other strategic purposes. It will take more than one site to reach our goal of 1,000 to 1,500 affordable housing units. As we enter the next phase of the project, we invite community members to share their thoughts about the development of these sites.  We will collect responses through January 31, 2022 and will use this community input to inform development principles.

There are three ways to share your thoughts:

1. Complete an online survey.

2. Print a PDF of the survey, complete it on paper, and return it to the project team at:
