Council Asks UVa to Halt Garage Project

Charlottesville City Council has asked the University of Virginia to cease the development of the Ivy Road parking garage until a meeting of the Planning and Coordination Council on Thursday. The garage is slated for construction beginning in July, and the plans were just announced in March, leaving opponents scrambling to mount protests. Council’s demand puts both them and UVa in an awkward position: if UVa backs down, they look weak, but if they don’t, they disrespect the city. (For more details on that dynamic, see John Borgmeyer’s story from last week’s C-Ville.) Eric Swensen has the story about these latest developments in today’s Progress.
