Trail to Tonsler Park

In 2018, the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation awarded the Fifeville Neighborhood Association a $7,500 grant to develop a concept for a creek-side trail that connects Greenstone on 5th and adjacent communities to Tonsler Park and the rest of Cherry Avenue. In 2021, the Rivanna Trails Foundation was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Virginia Outdoors Foundation to proceed with construction and community engagement around the project.[2]

Redevelopment

In February 2012, Community Housing Partners sought City Council support for a low-income housing tax credit application to help financing for a $7.15 million renovation. At one point, CHP had sought financed by bonds from the Waynesboro Redevelopment and Housing Authority. [3] However, they abandoned that approach when they learned the sale of those bonds would not cover the costs of the project. Instead, CHP will apply for tax credits from the Virginia Housing and Development Authority in March 2012. The renovations will allow the complex to expand by 4 units.[1]
