Update on Acme Visible Records property remediation
This is the former site of Acme Visible Records, the property to the east (Charlottesville side) of the Delivery Agent/Starr Hill Brewery building. It is now called the Wilson Jones property, because the Wilson Jones Company owns it.
Click here for October 2018 letter about environmental remediation progress, which provides a list of the anticipated project tasks to occur for the current Interim Measures (IM) soil remediation and ongoing Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) tasks at the Former Acme Visible Records site. We completed the interim soil excavation remediation measures during the second week of August 2018. The soil blending portion of the IM started in September on the north side of the Wilson Jones site’s property This task will likely last from three to four months.

The Albemarle Broadband Authority Asks for Help
Identifying Internet Access Needs in the County
The Albemarle Broadband Authority (ABBA) needs your input!
The ABBA is identifying potential projects for the 2019 Virginia Telecommunication Initiative (VATI) grant opportunity.
Their first step is to identify access needs because there is no database that provides information about what Internet services are available throughout the county. With your input, you can help them develop an accurate picture of where the problem areas are located.
Use this short form https://bit.ly/2QqLDUc
to let them know about areas within the county that lack broadband access and forward this form to anyone who might also like to participate.
Please respond by Wednesday, October 31. If you do not have Internet connection, you can call 434-296-5891 to report your information, or use the Crozet Library computers to complete the form online.
Areas that have previously been identified have been mapped and can be found here:https://bit.ly/2MXGzsk
. If your location is on one of the maps, or you have given them your feedback before, we still want to hear from you.
Thank you in advance.
