Lucy resignation creates second vacancy on City planning commission

Reader comments (0)


City Planning Commission Chairman Bill Lucy will step down effective in March as part of a sabbatical. Lucy is a professor with the University of Virginia School of Architecture who has served on the Commission since September 2004. He has been the chair since last October, when Jon Fink resigned.

“I have accomplished most of the goals I had in mind, and the City Council had in mind,
when I was appointed,” Lucy said when asked by Charlottesville Tomorrow.

Commissioner Hosea Mitchell's term will end in August, and he told Commissioners at the January 8 pre-meeting “gathering” that he will not seek another term.That means that the City will advertise for two vacant positions, and Council will select from a pool of applicants. One new commissioner will take office in April and the other will take office in the summer.

Commissioners Cheri Lewis and Bill Osteen will serve as a nominating committee to select a new chair and vice chair for the Commission and will make nominations at a later meeting of the Planning Commission.

Lucy's resignation date is effective March 13, 2008.
