The exhibit demonstrates how creating vibrant urban areas and protecting beautiful and productive rural areas are hardly mutually exclusive goals. This is a great message that, for all its simplicity, I think is not understood very well.
I noticed that Albemarle County planners are leading a discussion as part of the exhibit on the evening of May 14th. Wouldn't it be cool if this was joint led by City and County planners? That would be a tangible representation of the city-county cooperation that is truly necessary to work toward enhancing both of these very different living environments.
