Entrance Corridor (Charlottesville)
Charlottesville designates certain routes of tourist access as Entrance Corridors.
The Planning Commission has been designated as the Entrance Corridor Review Board (ERB) to ensure that corridor development is compatible with the city's historic landmarks, buildings, and structures.
Property owners must apply for and receive a certificate of appropriateness (COA) from the ERB for all development requiring a site plan. The director may grant administrative approval for other new construction, additions or modifications not requiring a site plan, and for signs, windows, doors, roof coverings, and siding. Code excludes single and two-family houses from these requirements.
