Feedback form is now closed.
Jane's Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbours. This Walk explores the Strategic Investment Area, an initiative to identify and shape potential redevelopment opportunities in a 330-acre section of Central Charlottesville into a walkable, mixed-income, and mixed-use neighborhood. Current residential areas include two Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority sites and the subsidized Friendship Court community. Led by City Councilor and Architect Kathy Galvin, entrepreneur and resident of Friendship Court, Toni Eubanks, and Piedmont Housing Alliance Community Organizer and urban planner, Claudette Grant, this walk explores the tensions between an opportunity for progress and fears of displacement. MEET IN THE AUDITORIUM OF THE JSAAHC.
