City Manager Forming a Downtown Mall Committee


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - As we approach the 50th anniversary of the creation of Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, the City is looking ahead to the next 50 years and beyond. The mall has been an economic engine for the City, as well as an essential community gathering place, important historic resource, and vital open space.

As with any community amenity, it is necessary to revisit maintenance, improvements, and enhancements. As a public place with a high level of activity throughout the day, we need to ensure everyone is welcome and has a quality experience.

The City Manager is forming a Downtown Mall Committee for the purpose of discussing and vetting ideas for the future management and operations of the mall. The intent of this committee is to be a representative public forum for the discussion of the challenges and potential solutions for the Downtown Mall. From this work, the City will develop an action plan to present to City Council. The intention is for this work to be completed within one year.
