International Rescue Committee to Host Annual Benefit Highlighting the Pathways and Systems a Refugee Must Navigate The International Rescue Committee in Charlottesville is hosting its annual benefit, We Rescue Lives: Navigation, on Tuesday, June 6th from 6-8:30 p.m. at Kardinal Hall. Tickets are $100 per person ($70 of each ticket purchased is tax deductible). All proceeds will benefit the IRC’s work in Charlottesville. The theme of the event is Navigation: A Refugee’s Path, illustrating the journey, both physical and emotional, that refugees experience, beginning when they flee their homes and culminating when they establish new lives here in the U.S., free from fear and full of hope for the future. The evening’s program will examine the systems and spaces that refugees must navigate to get to and around Charlottesville. A short film featuring one local man’s journey from refugee to US Citizen, generously produced by Still Life Projects, will be shown. Navigation will also feature a funda-need auction for guests to bid on a collection of prizes, including local artist Ken Horne’s Multitudinous Pathways—a piece inspired by and crafted specifically for this event—while learning more about some of the real, immediate needs refugees in Charlottesville

WTJU & IX Art Park present Freefall Music & Art Festival: September 2 October 28, 2017 What does the perfect Charlottesville Saturday afternoon look like to you? This fall, it looks like the Freefall Music & Art Festival – presented by WTJU 91.1 FM and the IX Art Park every Saturday from September 2 through October 28, 2017! Formerly known as the Levitt AMP Charlottesville Music Series, the WTJU / IX Art Park signature fall events have a new name for 2017—the Freefall Music & Art Festival. Each family-friendly event in the Freefall series will feature FREE outdoor live music, art, local brews, food trucks, and beautiful fall weather at the IX Art Park, 522 2nd Street SE in Charlottesville. “Freefall is the new name for our music series, but it’s going to create the same amazing community vibe that

we’ve nurtured for the last two years,” said Nathan Moore, WTJU General Manager. “These family-friendly concerts bring people together through shared music experiences, and they’re a tremendous amount of fun.” When it comes to free outdoor music in Charlottesville, Freefall picks up where “Fridays After Five” ends—but with a unique and funky vibe every Saturday in September and October at the IX Art Park. The Freefall concert series brings people together through shared music experiences, and invigorates the IX Art Park space right in the heart of Charlottesville. “The IX Art Park is all about the power of collective creativity,” said Brian Wimer, Executive Director of the IX Art Park. “These Freefall events deliver excellent music and so much more. They inspire people to dream big as part of this community.” Washington, DC-based band Black Masala will open the concert series on September 2 with its Balkan and funk music inspired brass band energy. The annual Cville Sabroso Festival and Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival will also be part of the Freefall series later in September. The full concert series line-up will be announced in June. ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS: WTJU, the University of Virginia’s public radio station, operates non-commercial radio stations at 91.1 FM in Charlottesville and 102.9 FM in Richmond. It enriches the culture of Virginia and brings together diverse people through exceptional music and conversation. WTJU makes great radio and engages our communities through live music concerts and educational programs. For more information, visit www.wtju.net. The IX ART PARK is an interactive sculpture garden that is open to the public. It is a free, collaborative community space that supports local nonprofit organizations; encourages participation from artists, musicians and performers from all walks of life; and supports educational opportunities for all ages. For more information, please visit www.ixartpark.com.

Live Arts Closes The 2016-2017 Season With Death Of A Salesman Live Arts will close out its current, twenty-sixth season with the powerful classic American drama DEATH OF A SALESMAN, by Arthur Miller. Opening May 19 and running through June 4, the Pulitzer-prize-winning mid-century tribute to the Average American, which also won the 1949 Tony Award

for Best Drama, is particularly resonant once again in today’s world. “What an honor to be working on this icon of the American stage with such a magnificent cast and support team,” said director William Rough, veteran Live Arts director, and actor. “Some might say that in these days of stress and uncertainty, we need more laughter. I love to laugh, and there are some funny moments in Death of a Salesman, but there are also moments of poignancy and truth.” Describing her affinity for a play written almost seventy years ago, Producer Kelli Shermeyer focused on the play’s enduring relevance. “It’s exciting to see Live Arts tackle such a giant of twentieth-century theater. Death of a Salesman’s meditations on family, success and the illusory nature of the American Dream never go out of style.” Speaking of the play’s themes, Rough noted, “Miller explores, and we are exploring, the value of a human life, of well-earned personal esteem, of the pride in a good job well done, and of the all-American dream of family and a house of our own. Too often, such dreams remain only dreams.” DEATH OF A SALESMAN is presented by Elizabeth and Joe LeVaca and is sponsored by Nest Realty. PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE: DEATH OF A SALESMAN will open on May 19 and run through June 4, 2017, with performances on: • May 19, 20, 24, 26, 27 and 31, June 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. • May 25 and June 1 at 7:30 p.m. • May 28 and June 4 at 2 p.m. TICKET INFORMATION: General Admission is $25; Senior/Student tickets are $20; Wednesday performances are Pay-What-You-Can.

The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Matthew S. Gibson as executive director. With deep knowledge of and passion for the public humanities, experience leading diverse and innovative programs, and extensive relationships with humanities scholars and partners across Virginia and the nation, Gibson will lead VFH after having served as the organization’s director of digital initiatives and creator and editor of its Encyclopedia Virginia for eleven years.

to be human in a changing and complex world. This work has never been more important than it is today, and Matthew is the perfect steward of our mission to connect people and ideas, sharing Virginia’s diverse stories so we can create a better future together.” “VFH has become a national model for public humanities programming, and I relish the chance to collaborate with our staff, board, and partners on the organization’s next chapter,” says Gibson. “We’re in an ideal position to facilitate experiences for Virginians of all ages—experiences that encourage meaningful connections through our commonalities as well as respect for our differences. I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to bring my experience and passion to this important work.” While at VFH, Gibson has created an endowment of more than $1.8 million to sustain its award-winning Encyclopedia Virginia and led projects funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities totaling more than $800,000. Prior to joining VFH in 2005, he served as assistant director and then associate director of the University of Virginia Library’s Electronic Text Center, one of the University’s early efforts to foster digital scholarship and create digital access to the school’s library collections. Gibson received his Ph.D. (2005) and a master’s degree (1999) in English, both from the University of Virginia. In 1995, he graduated magna cum laude from the College of Charleston, where he received a bachelor’s degree in English. He lives in Charlottesville with his wife Jennifer Billingsly and their children Frannie and Bennett. VFH is the largest of all fifty-six state humanities councils, with the most diverse programs and funding sources in the nation. It has produced more than 40,000 humanities programs including festivals, public radio programs, conferences, and digital resources, and contributed to more than 3,500 grant projects and 350 fellowships. A trailblazer in the field of public humanities, VFH is the only state council to produce public radio programs and the only humanities organization in the world to partner with Google to produce Street View, virtual tours of historic sites, an initiative led by Gibson that has directly impacted K-12 teachers and students. With a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion in the sharing of Virginia’s stories, VFH highlights the history and cultural contributions of women, African Americans, Virginia Indians, and Virginia’s growing immigrant population. n

Just How Good We Have It BY KEN WILSON

“I

f you close your eyes and say, ‘What would Charlottesville-Albemarle be like if UVA were somewhere else?’, muses Timothy Hulbert, President of the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce, “I don’t think anybody can tell you.” He can say that again. The University of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson’s dream, is now ranked second in the

nation among public colleges and universities by U.S. News and World Report. Founded in 1819, its 1,682-acre campus—pardon, “grounds”—is centered on the Academical Village handsomely designed by Jefferson himself. But its reach, its impact on Charlottesville alone, is incalculable. A school that offers 48 different bachelor’s degrees, 94 master’s degrees, 55 doctoral degrees, along with professional degrees in law and medicine attracts a lot of smart kids and turns out

a lot smarter adults, many of whom fall in love with its history and culture and gorgeous Shenandoah Valley setting and decide to stick around. Lucky us. Skilled and educated, creative and entrepreneurial, these UVA grads could make it anywhere they like, yet they choose to make it here. They are, to say the least, good company. Take Lexington, Virginia native, Carrie Baker, who majored in Latin American studies at the University, and works there now in human resources.

Baker recently purchased a two-story house on Market Street. “There are a good variety of things to do here,” she says, citing cultural opportunities like “speakers and the Virginia Film Festival—all the things that are sponsored by the University that give you opportunities to stay plugged into what’s going on.” “I always have this tag, live where you love, and love where you live,” says Cynthia Viejo of Nest Realty. “I find this place to be a very powerful en-

ergy center that attracts all different kinds of people: artists, writers, and actors; health-conscious, community conscious, and Earth-conscious people. There is a really nice relationship in this town between all kinds of people, which is one of the reasons I’ve been here since 1979. UVA adds a wonderful flavor.” Nest Realty agent, Janice Kavanaugh, frequently works with UVA alumni who left town after graduation, established successful careers in New York or other urban centers and are eager to return. “They jump ship,” she says, jumping at the chance to raise their families in a town with clean air and close proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains, a great medical center, a diverse citizenry, and the plethora of sporting events and cultural riches that an outstanding university offers. “Some of those people could live anywhere with their jobs, and they choose to come back,” she says. “Their loyalty to UVA is large, and they just love Charlottesville. We have a fabulous quality of life.“ Take Farzad Farnoud and his wife Homa, both assistant professors in the school of engineering, who recently purchased a home in Crozet. Originally from Iran, since immigrating to America in 2008 they have lived in Illinois, New York and Los Angeles. So why Charlottesville? “The University and the city were big factors,” Farzad says, “and the nature”—even his commute down Ivy Road—“is really beautiful. We really like the Downtown Mall area, and the University has a great research program. The new exciting initiatives in the school of engineering were the main reason that attracted us to UVA and to Charlottesville.” As for the city itself, “it seems very community-driven”—and just plain friendly. “People have been very nice and helpful,” Homa adds, telling a story about a neighbor who offered lawn care tips. Talented people like the Farnouds provide an enormous boost to the Charlottesville area economically. “The University of Virginia is our region’s leading economic engine and has been so for almost 200 years,” Hulbert notes. “Together UVA, the UVA Health System and other associated UVA organizations employ nearly 20,000 of our neighbors, friends and family, my wife included.” Dollar-wise, a recent economic impact study found that the annual statewide impact of the University’s Academic Division, Health System and College at Wise totals $5.9 billion, with its research arms alone accounting for $644.5 million, supporting 10,845 jobs through direct, indirect and in-

duced employment. Nearly $5 billion of this spending remains in the local Thomas Jefferson Planning District. Taken together, the University of Virginia and University of Virginia Health System are the largest employer in the Charlottesville area. Statewide, UVA directly provides or indirectly supports 51,653 jobs—one in every 76 in the Commonwealth. A partial list of local employers and the numbers of UVA alumni and students they employed in February 2016 illustrates the economic intertwining of town and gown: UVA Health System—342; Albemarle County Public

Schools—142; University of Virginia Darden School of Business—90; James Madison University—89; City of Charlottesville—71; Merkle|RKG —70; SNL Financial—69; CFA Institute—52; Piedmont Virginia Community College—41; US Army—39; University of Virginia Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy—39; Martha Jefferson Hospital—39; PRA Health Sciences—37; Albemarle County—36; University of Virginia School of Law— 36; VMDO Architects—34; Thomas Jefferson Foundation—30; WorldStrides—30; State Farm—29; Center for Open Science—27; Silverchair—22.

ing. Much of that spending is forward-looking. This past January the Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Darden School offered a three-day boot camp for students interested in venture capital and entrepreneurship designed to teach them about early-stage investing. But according to the National Venture Capital Association, Charlottesville is already the fastest-growing area in the country for venture capital, generating seven new UVA-related startups in Fiscal Year 2015, and 53 since 2006. Venture funding investment in local companies rose from $250,000 to $27.7 million between 2010 and 2015.

ent development, and infrastructure and funding. iLab Incubator supports student, faculty and community entrepreneurs in developing early-stage business ventures. LVG, located in the Coca-Cola Bottling Works with co-working space for University-based entrepreneurs, supports hundreds of invention disclosures, patent applications, commercial transactions and new company launches. Twenty-nine percent of UVA alumni in a 2014 study by UVA’s Darden School of Business identified themselves as “entrepreneurial,” but the real numbers were even higher: 19 percent were founders,11 percent were early

A 2015 Brookings Institution report noted that Charlottesville’s annual rate of first-round venture capital financing is nearly two and a half times higher than the national average. Over $65 million in follow-on funding has been invested in UVA research projects that have strong potential for improved healthcare as well as commercial and industrial applications. And according to AffordableSchools.net, UVA is one of the top 50 entrepreneurial schools in the country, for both its entrepreneurship centers and its top-ranked business schools. Its Licensing and Ventures Group (LVG) was recently recognized among six technology transfer “star performers.” UVA’s numerous and widely varied economic development activities include entrepreneurial development and start-up creation, public and private partnerships, workforce and tal-

employees (one of a new company’s first five), 12 percent were board members, and 7 percent were investors. Sixteen percent of UVA alumni entrepreneurs had taken entrepreneurship classes and programs at the University. What’s more, the study found, business creation by UVA alumni over the long term is on an upward trajectory, with 2010 being the single highest year so far. Most impressively, as Darden reported, “the survival rate of UVA alumni ventures compares favorably to national averages.” “I think it’s Charlottesville’s most vital partner in the community we’re building,” says Mayor Mike Signer when asked what the University means to our quality of life. “They are our biggest employer; they’re the source of a lot of our history and culture and arts.

HOUSE & HOME

MAY 17-MAY 23, 2017 ISSUE 26-20

S

tatistics and reports reveal a definite move toward people building and buying smaller homes than a decade ago. “I think the trend really started with the recession,” declares REALTOR® Greg Slater, an Associate Broker with Nest Realty in Charlottesville. “Everyone started looking at building projects more closely.” According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the average house size reached its peak ten years ago in 2007 at a bit over 2,500 square feet. By 2015, the average was estimated to be about 10 percent smaller and the trend seems to be holding. A related development is the “greening” of housing with careful attention paid to special components and construction to enhance energy savings. “The correction in the market was an opportunity to really look at energy efficiency,” Slater continues. “A high percentage of Charlottesville builders were into green changes before they were required to be.” Also popular is repurposing materials during construction. For example, Latitude 38 is a Charlottesville home building company specializing in energy-efficient homes. Although Latitude 38 builds only new homes, some components aren’t new. “We like to reuse material when possible,” says co-owner Joey Conover. For example, they have employed previously used wood from various sources including old barns and even flooring from a basketball court being replaced by a high school.

Greener = WINNER BY MARILYN PRIBUS

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

Informed Buyers “We have much more informed buyers in the world,” Slater says. “We all changed our mindsets after the recession.” One mindset that changed was about house size. “It wasn’t so much downsizing as ‘right-sizing,’” Slater points out. A smaller home costs less to build, of course, and requires a smaller mortgage, and over the years, there is less upkeep, and lower energy expense for heating and cooling. In addition, smaller homes fit better with today’s lifestyle. Families are smaller and often no one is home during the day. People are more likely to seek recreation and to entertain away from home, so dwellings are less likely to have a formal foyer, living room, and dining room. Instead the family room, kitchen, living and dining areas are likely to flow into each other, decreasing the need for walls that take up floor space. Anoth-

er change: today’s flat-screen TVs and small speakers replace the space-gobbling “entertainment centers” of previous years. Other features high on today’s house shoppers’ wish lists include the familiar and valid desire for location-location-location. Safety is another important requirement, followed by a floor plan that suits the buyers’ needs, and upgraded kitchens, separate laundry rooms, and double garages.

Age Matters Another factor driving smaller homes is America’s aging population. “Builders always talk generationally,” Slater comments, “and the Baby Boomers have a tremendous influence on economy and housing now.” When the kids leave home and folks retire they often choose to downsize to

save money and the effort of maintaining a large place. Statistics show about 13 percent of the population was 65 or older in 2010 and that number will be approaching 20 percent by 2030. These people generally prefer single-level condos or houses with green, senior-friendly features, such as generous main-level master bedrooms, barrier-free doors and showers, and definitely low maintenance. “Still,” Slater adds, “the real drivers today are the Millennials. They are just hitting the age for buying their first house. They will be driving the construction market and they want the right type of house with walkability, connectivity and energy efficiency.”

Energy Efficiency Is Essential New homes and retrofits are generally moving toward more green features

fostered by technology such as low-E windows (these have coatings that minimize ultraviolet and infrared light without compromising visible light) and water-efficient features such as dual-flush toilets and low-flow faucets. ENERGY STAR®-rated appliances, heating and air conditioning units, lighting fixtures, and even roofs are pretty much standard these days. (ENERGY STAR® is a government-backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.) Substantial insulation is another definite plus, according to Slater, and one that adds value as a retrofit. “A tightly built home with better insulation costs less to operate without substantially driving up the cost of that home,” he says. While insulation is certainly nothing new—although new insulating materials and installations are being devised—desirable new tech features are emerging almost daily. “Thermostats these days are programmable and wi-fi connected,” says Slater. “And tankless, on-demand water heaters have great convenience. They have a memory so you get hot water right away and you don’t run out.” This is true even with teenagers in the house. “Another trend really popping up is solar panels—basic or retrofit,” Slater adds. “The tax benefit has been extended and people are basically paying for power in advance. With the help of appraisers, solar has an add-on value as well.” One company he cites is Virginia-based Pearl Home Certification, an organization that verifies the value of environmental upgrades such as solar panels and other energy-efficient components. Cynthia Adams, Pearl’s CEO, explains, “The certification of upgrades ensures they are included in appraisals so homeowners can recoup the value of their ‘green’ improvements for refi [refinancing] or resale.”

Really, Really Small Houses There is a small, but emerging trend toward truly small houses—600 square feet or less. In fact, tiny houses are even offered for sale on eBay! These are not allowed by some zoning restrictions, but can be a great primary dwelling or a “granny flat” on the right property. Marilyn Pribus and her husband live in Albemarle County in a 20-year-old, 1,400-square-foot home with retrofitted green features.

It’s not so much downsizing as “right-sizing.”

College Town CONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 new focus on innovation and technology, which is very exciting.” The newly approved Seed Fund, to be professionally managed and administered by LVG, will have $10 million, expendable in up to $1 million increments over ten years, and is expected to make two to four seed stage investments a year, funding critical experiments and UVA-affiliated new ventures. The state-of-the-art UVA Research Park has 23 tenants and more than 1,200 workers. Its sponsorship of the annual “4 the Wounded” 5k race has raised over $515,000 for military veterans, personnel, and their families since its inception in 2011. “The powerful impact of UVA research is often overlooked,” Hulbert says.” UVA, its medical college, Health System and College at Wise are engaged with the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Department of Defense, and others. They do plus or minus $300 million in federally funded research each year. Those activities

directly and indirectly contribute to a wide range of jobs.” But dollars and cents and jobs aren’t all that UVA’s research activities contribute. “We’re not just talking about jobs here,” Hulbert stresses, “but also the breakthroughs, like the artificial pancreas developed by doctors Stacey Anderson and Sue Brown [along with Dr. Bruce Buckingham of Stanford], which can benefit more than a million Americans with Type 1 diabetes.” Hulbert is speaking of the smartphone app developed by researchers at UVA’s Center for Diabetes Technology that functions as an artificial pancreas, regulating blood sugar levels in diabetes patients by delivering insulin. He also has a personal reason to be impressed. In 2004 Hulbert was diagnosed with a Stage 4 cancer, “a pretty aggressive form of lymphoma. My doctor and his team at the University of Virginia discovered the chromosomal miscreant. Now that the discovery has been made, treatment for this rare form of lymphoma is incredibly successful. I

went from having a five year deal that’s now been 13 years. That’s all been because of National Institute of Health research right here in River City.” For the Farnoud’s part, they’re engaged in work that promises exciting future payoffs. With a background in information and coding theory and an active interest in machine learning and

data analysis, Farzad is designing code for better flash memory, and analyzing biological data for use, for example, in identifying disease-causing genes. Homa, who has done award-winning work ensuring the safety and security of surgical robots, is researching the design of dependable cyber-physical systems. Innovative and forward-thinking, UVA faculty, staff and students are also generous with their money and time, volunteering 111,135 hours in 2015 at schools, health clinics, food pantries, community centers and animal shelters, and making $18.9 million in charitable donations annually—$70.3 million including the dollar value of volunteer hours. “UVA leads all state agencies in employee giving through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC),” says University Deputy Spokesperson Matt Charles. “Since 1999 it has given a total of more than $13 million to the campaign, which supports more than 1,000 nonprofit organizations. UVA employees donated more than $1 million during the recent 2016 CVC campaign that benefits a number of area charities.” “UVA,” as Hulbert puts it, “is an ever-present economic engine in innumerable ways. It is the engine that powers our community.” n
