Albemarle Planning Commission up to full strength

After nearly a year of being down to six people, the Albemarle Planning Commission is back to having a full complement of seven voting members. Earlier this month, the Board of Supervisors selected Nathan Moore to represent the Rio District. 

“My day job is that I manage WTJU Radio,” Moore said in his introductory comments at the May 23 meeting of the Planning Commission. “That’s the University of Virginia’s community radio station as well as our student sister station.”

Moore has spent the last three years representing the Rio District on the Albemarle County Service Authority. That is a six-member body that approves policy for the county’s public utilities. 

“And I also spent misspent youth playing SimCity and City Skyline so I’m looking forward to putting that to real world use,” Moore said. 

The terms of the Three Party Agreement call for the University of Virginia to have a non-voting representative but that position is vacant. The last person to hold that role was appointed last year to serve as the at-large member. 

Luis Carrazana is employed by the University of Virginia Office of the Architect as the Associate University Architect. He was appointed to the Planning Commission in January 2022 alongside Fred Missel, the director of development for the UVA Foundation. Missel now represents the Scottsville District.
