    Mayor Cox: Ivy Rd. Garage a ‘Fundamentally Flawed Idea

    The City of Charlottesville has filed papers with the DEQ, asking that more accurate information be collected about the effect UVa’s planned garage would have on local vehicular traffic. The Lewis Mtn. Neighborhood Assoc. made a similar request this week.
