Learn more: UVA lays out plans June 15

Locals who want to learn more about UVA's plans and chat with the mappers of the future might want to attend the upcoming "community briefing."

The event features university leaders, including the new architect for the university, David J. Neuman, who promises to highlight ideas on university housing and the Health System area plan. Cheryl Gomez, director of utilities, will address environmental compliance plans for UVA's main heating plant, a coal-burning facility that has come under fire for emitting fumes and debris in the Venable neighborhood.

The event happens at 7pm Tuesday, June 15, in the Newcomb Hall Ballroom. Parking will be available at the Central Grounds Parking Garage at 400 Emmet St. 924-1321; communityrelations@virginia.edu.–Hawes Spencer
