Watching American sports always requires turning a willful blind eye to real darkness. Football players at every level spend their lives dogged by devastating brain injuries. College athletes create huge sums of money for TV channels and universities, but are banned from receiving any compensation themselves. Owners coerce cashstrapped cities into spending millions of dollars on stadiums that rarely return the investment. The list goes on. This year, fans have to come to terms with an additional moral trade-off. We’re in the midst of a global pandemic, and playing sports is not a particularly smart thing to do. There’s tons of close contact. There’s constant travel. In college football especially, outbreaks have occurred and games have been canceled. College basketball starts this week, and our feature (p. 16) takes a look at the Cavaliers’ chances. I won’t tell you that it’s actually fine to play basketball, because it’s probably not. The season certainly won’t have its normal shine this time around, with fans absent and disease lurking. I’ll be glued to the TV, though. Since May, when the return of German soccer broke a two-month sports hiatus, I have been absorbing football and basketball and soccer more than ever, hungry for in-bubble tournaments and artificial crowd noise and everything else. In the last six months, sports have provided what they always provide—distraction, joy, connection with fellow fans. And, like always, I have enjoyed those benefits, ignoring my conscience for four quarters at a time. I hope the season proceeds safely. I hope no one gets sick. Should games get canceled, I won’t complain. For now, though, when the whistle blows and the jump ball goes up this week, I won’t be able to help myself—I’ll be engrossed in the action from the very first minute. Let’s see a good clean game.—Ben Hitchcock

Volunteers hand out birds at the We Code, Too turkey drive on Saturday.

You can get anything on Craigslist—even a much-loved Charlottesville bar. Durty Nelly’s Pub is for sale, and last week the whole shebang was briefly posted on the online classified board with a price tag of $75,000. Durty Nelly’s is still open and doesn’t plan on closing, but the post suggested that the owner is looking to move on.

Turkey time

Pass it around After Governor Ralph Northam’s recent announcement that he would support marijuana legalization in next year’s General Assembly session, State Delegate Lee Carter proposed that money generated from pot sales be spent on reparations for Black and Indigenous Virginians. It’s “a moral commitment our history demands of us and a necessary first step in Virginia,” Carter wrote in a press release.

It’ll come as no surprise that one business in particular is thriving during the pandemic: Virginia ABC stores have reported record sales through the last few months, turning in $22 million more in revenue in October 2020 than during October 2019. Usually, restaurants make up roughly 20 percent of the ABC stores’ businesses, but the liquor shops are having no trouble making ends meet even with that flow interrupted.

After 16 months on the job, former city manager Tarron Richardson walked away with $205,000 in severance pay.

Charlottesville city government’s staffing woes continue. On November 4, the city announced that Parag Agrawal had been hired as the Director of Neighborhood Development Services. Agrawal even made an introductory appearance at a press conference the next day. But less than two weeks later, Agrawal is gone, after announcing last week that he’s taken a job as the planning director in Prince William County instead. There’s been a lot of turnover at City Hall recently, but this is a new record. Looking on the bright side, at least the city won’t have to pay Agrawal a severance package. Mike Murphy got nine months of additional pay after spending a year as interim city manager, and former city manager Tarron Richardson got a $205,000 lump sum after less than a year and a half at the helm. Maybe it would’ve been in Agrawal’s best interest to stick around for another week or two—who knows what he might have walked away with.

Bottom lines up

@cville_weekly

Community is hard to come by these days, especially as we’re all hunkering down for a long winter indoors. But at the Jefferson School on Saturday, the community put on an impressive show. During the annual We Code, Too turkey drive, 200 birds were handed out to those in need ahead of the holiday. Some of the turkeys were contributed by retailers, and many more were purchased using money from individual donations. Cars snaked through the parking lot, as recipients remained socially distant during distribution. It’s the seventh year in a row that the drive has taken place, proving that even in difficult times, some things remain constant.

After just two years as UVA president, Jim Ryan may be moving on to the White House—at least, if Nicholas Kristof has his way. The New York Times columnist floated Ryan as a secretary of education pick for Joe Biden’s cabinet last week, praising his “strong moral compass” and more than a decade of experience in higher education. Ryan was “flattered” by the mention, but said, “My focus has been and will continue to be leading the University of Virginia.”

Moving forward School board votes to continue in-person reopening plans By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

A

fter nearly six months of remote learning, Charlottesville City Schools is moving forward with its plans to begin in-person classes at the start of the new year. During its virtual meeting last Thursday, the Charlottesville School Board unanimously voted to allow the district’s COVID-19 advisory committee to continue working on its reopening proposal, which received a stamp of approval from CCS Superintendent Dr. Rosa Atkins earlier this month. Under the current proposal, preschool through sixth grade will have in-person classes four days a week, starting January 11. Seventh grade and up will be at school twice a week beginning February 1, and do independent work the other days. The board will take a final vote on the plan during its December 16 meeting. According to a binding intent form sent out at the beginning of the month, 2,296 students, or 66 percent of the district, want to attend in-person classes. Staff are reaching out to the roughly 17 percent of families who have not filled out their form yet. Because the district is currently using all of its bus drivers to deliver meals and transport special needs students, it plans to use CARES funds to contract additional drivers, who will help serve the 373 students who said they cannot get to school without the bus. Though COVID safety restrictions make providing large-scale bus service very difficult, the district will also work to accommodate as many of the 561 other students who requested bus rides—but could still get to school without them—as possible. In stark contrast to previous surveys, a majority of the district’s 470 teachers indicated they felt safe enough to return to the classroom. Seventy-two percent of kindergarten through sixth grade teachers volunteered to do face-to-face classes, along with 65 percent of those teaching seventh through 12th grade.

Charlottesville City Schools Superintendent Rosa Atkins gave her stamp of approval to the school board’s decision to move forward with in-person classes at the beginning of the year.

However, 139 teachers and 24 instructional assistants across all grades asked to continue to work remotely. Most said they were either high-risk, or taking care of a loved one who is. An additional 27 teachers and nine instructional assistants requested paid medical leave through the federal government’s Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which requires select employers to provide their staff with paid leave for reasons related to COVID-19. Though the district so far has approved every complete request for leave, Charlottesville Education Association President Jessica Taylor accused administrative staff of not properly communicating with teachers in need of ADA accommodations. “Educators who submitted paperwork should receive acknowledgment of receipt without having to make numerous follow-up inquiries,” she said during Thursday’s public comment. “There’s [also] been a breakdown in understanding... One CEA member was given a choice to either provide face-to-face services for a student or resign. She chose to resign.” “We don’t want any teachers resigning. COVID will not last forever. We’re going to get through this,” said Atkins. “We need them. We want them on board.” Also during public comment, parents voiced their concerns with the binding intent form. “There are families like my own who are choosing on the intent form to go in-person, even though it is not our preference,

for fear we will get locked out if we change our minds later,” said Maria Stein. While the city’s current numbers are low compared to the rest of Virginia, health experts anticipate case spikes in the coming weeks due to winter weather and holiday gatherings. “We will handle individual cases,” responded Atkins. But now, “in order to plan for transportation, make a master schedule, and assign teachers, we have to know who’s going to be in-person, who has elected to continue with virtual.” During the rest of the meeting, board members discussed class schedules for middle and high schoolers at length, taking issue with the large amount of asynchronous learning.

“I would rather them continue to be virtual then go to that model.” JENNIFER MCKEEVER, CCS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER

The district currently plans to divide each grade level into two groups made up of both in-person and virtual learners. When one group of students is in the classroom, their classmates in the same group will watch the class live on Zoom. Meanwhile, students in the other group will work on independent assignments from home during school hours. Having far fewer live classes worries board members that students will not progress academically. “To me, that takes us back to last spring when the quality of what was happening wasn’t real good and we were all scrambling,” said school board member Sherry Kraft. “We’ve done so much work to provide quality instruction.” But with the limited staffing available, asynchronous learning is impossible to avoid, explained CHS Principal Eric Irizarry. “Every student’s schedule is so unique at the high school, and we’re the only high school. We have two and half chemistry teachers, we have one orchestra teacher, one band,” he said. “A student that comes into the building, they’re going to need to see all of those teachers for that day. There’s not a way to run a concurrent master schedule.” Still, the board urged district staff and the COVID-19 advisory committee to look at different ways to deliver instruction during the times set aside for independent work, and present their findings at the December 16 meeting. “I would rather them continue to be virtual then go to that model,” said board chair Jennifer McKeever of middle and high schoolers. “We are small enough to solve the problem, and not have three days of asynchronous learning.”

Designed to deceive By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

A

ness model. He’s also accused LAJC of using the plaintiffs for “exposure.” In 2009, while volunteering for Mike Signer’s unsuccessful lieutenant governor campaign, Donovan and his now-husband Richard Moore landed themselves five months in jail. The pair had rented out rooms and office space under fake names at hotels, and failed to pay the tens of thousands of dollars in bills. In interviews, Donovan has claimed his months in jail led him to get involved in the bond business. Because of their felonies, he and Moore are prohibited from getting licensed as bondsmen, so they decided to become middlemen. According to LAJC’s lawsuit, the couple formally established Nexus Services, Inc. in 2013. It has since grown to have more than 30 offices in eight states, with over 6,000 clients. Since The Washington Post published a story in 2017 exposing the struggles faced by company’s clients, Nexus has been investigated by a string of state and federal government agencies. Last year, the state of Virginia threatened to shut down the company. In recent months, Nexus has been active in other industries as well. This March it provided funding, described as “pandemic relief,” to the Shenandoah Valley Militia and Citizens Response Unit, a gun rights, anti-government group. “Americans are being told to stay in their homes, being placed on mandatory lockdowns, and in some places threatened with jail if they violate those orders. This is not America and it’s surely not freedom,” said Donovan, whose company has reportedly violated the rights of undocumented immigrants.

LEGAL AID JUSTICE CENTER LAWSUIT

In other states over a period of years, numerous immigrants have accused Nexus of swindling them into predatory terms and conditions they didn’t understand, giving them ankle monitors that burst into flames, and forcing them into insufferable living conditions. Those unable to keep up with payments have reported being threatened with detention or deportation. (As an unlicensed middleman, Nexus has no authority to deliver immigrants to ICE, or force them to attend court hearings.) “[Nexus] attempts to camouflage its practices by casting itself as a champion of immigrants...when in reality its scheme traps desperate immigrants into paying thousands of dollars, often in amounts far exceeding their bond,” says the LAJC lawsuit. “[This] scheme has siphoned more than $100 million from some of the most vulnerable immigrants and their communities.” Because ICE requires its excessive bail prices, set as high as $60,000, to be paid by someone with legal status, many detained immigrants—if they are even allowed to post bail—have no choice but to turn to companies like Nexus for freedom, or remain imprisoned until their hearing, which can take months or years. The lawsuit ultimately contends that Nexus should not be allowed to exist at all. Because Nexus acts as a middleman, rather than dispensing the bonds itself, it cannot be regulated by the federal and state laws that apply to licensed insurance and bail bond agencies. Therefore, it can charge clients heavily inflated prices. Donovan has publicly condemned the lawsuit, claiming that it is full of “outright lies,” and misconstrues the company’s busi-

“[Nexus] attempts to camouflage its practices by casting itself as a champion of immigrants...when in reality its scheme traps desperate immigrants into paying thousands of dollars, often in amounts far exceeding their bond.”

Charlottesville’s Legal Aid Justice Center was the site of a dubious protest last week.

November 25 – December 1, 2020 c-ville.com

round 7pm on November 10, a city resident was surprised to see a cluster of 20 to 30 sign-carrying protesters and a film crew gathered near the Legal Aid Justice Center. While stopped at the traffic light near the LAJC, the resident says an unmasked, college-aged woman approached his car window and asked if he supported immigrants’ rights. When he said yes, she delivered a “spiel,” claiming that the renowned justice center was “hurting immigrants.” She handed him a flier with the heading “LAJC BEWARE” and a call to “report abuse” at the url bewarelajc.com. The site shows a reproduction of the flier and offers a host of broken links. The protesters have connections with Nexus Services, a Harrisonburg, Virginia-based immigration bail bond company with a well-documented history of illegal practices. Though Nexus is not mentioned on the flier or the website, Nexus Services owns the domain bewarelajc.com, and when pressed, admitted to helping the protesters get organized. In August 2019, LAJC filed suit against Nexus on behalf of a group of clients who allege they were the victims of a “fraudulent immigration bond scheme” that “preys on immigrants in federal detention centers.” The attorneys general in three states, including Virginia, have investigated the company in recent years. Legal Aid said it was aware of the event but declined to comment, citing the ongoing litigation. “The signs were clearly made in one place, by one person,” says the area resident who was approached by the protesters. “That’s not how protests work. In grassroots protests, people like to make [homemade] signs. These were printed, but they were clearly trying to make them look like they were grassroots.” Another witness who is familiar with the work of LAJC had similar reservations: “The signs said something along the lines of ‘LAJC is anti-immigrant.’ I certainly would not characterize the people there as anti-immigrant, so [the protest] was pretty shocking and strange.” Nexus initially denied involvement in the protest. “The organizers were actually a group of young people (independent of Nexus) who are active in social justice,” wrote Heather Wilson, a Nexus public relations representative. After C-VILLE asked why Nexus owned the associated website domain, which was created on November 10, Wilson changed her tune, saying that “Nexus helps set up advocacy websites all the time and the website was provided to the kids as part of their social justice work.”

Searches show that Nexus Services owns dozens of domain names, the majority of which are inactive variations on the word Nexus. Anna Lohmiller, one of the demonstrators who participated in the event outside LAJC, claims that the group, called The System, is creating a reality TV show. “We go around and we gather information on certain cases that we believe there’s been injustices,” she says. She echoes the allegations on the flier, accusing LAJC of filing false affidavits on behalf of an immigrant who did not understand English. The System, which currently has eight members, is not a part of Nexus, explains Lohmiller. However, Nexus president Mike Donavon is the lead producer for the show and an advisor to the group. “He mentors us on a ton of different cases, and he just provides us with some basic knowledge about stuff that’s going on,” Lohmiller says. Because the group is “just starting out with this,” Nexus also provided them with a domain for their website for free, she adds. Lohmiller claims that LAJC’s lawsuit against Nexus has nothing to with her Nexus-affiliated group’s decision to protest LAJC. “We don’t independently base our decisions on what Nexus does,” she says. One of the people who saw the protest in action has a different theory. “I can only guess that they hired fake protesters, and they’re trying to smear the [LAJC],” the witness says. Last year, LAJC sued Nexus for more than $1 million on behalf of six Central American immigrants, who accused the company of coercing detained immigrants into signing long-term contracts—written mostly in English—that cover their bail through third-party bondsmen. The contracts also force the immigrants, once released, to pay $420 per month for GPS ankle monitoring, plus other fees. The location tracking practice is not required by immigration authorities.

It’s a wonder Blue Ridge Tunnel trail opening is more than a century in the making By Carol Diggs

AND WALK

Albemarle, Nelson, and Augusta counties, the City of Waynesboro, and local community organizations, was set up in 2012 to develop community support and funding. The opening last weekend was the culmination of more than a decade of that work. The trail is now open every day, sunrise to sunset. Nelson County Parks and Recreation Director Claire Richardson recommends checking the department’s Facebook page or website before coming, since there may be occasional closures due to weather or maintenance. There are access points at either end (one in Nelson, one in Augusta), with small parking lots and half-mile approach trails leading up to the tunnel entrances. (Word to the wise: The western approach trail is much steeper than the eastern one.) Bring a flashlight, headlamp, or lantern for safety, and a jacket for comfort; the crushed gravel path can be uneven, so wear decent walking shoes. And bring your mask. But mostly, bring your sense of wonder: at this area’s natural beauty, at a remarkable human achievement from 160 years ago, and at a marvelous opportunity to visit a world we don’t usually get to see—unless we’re salamanders or crayfish. And, as Richardson says, “Stay tuned for Halloween 2021.”

t’s dark. It’s damp. It’s cold. And it’s so cool. The newly opened Claudius Crozet Blue Ridge Tunnel trail lets you walk under the Blue Ridge—under Rockfish Gap, under I-64, under the Appalachian Trail and Skyline Drive. More than 700 feet above, drivers sweep through forested hillsides while you peer at walls of hewn rock and brick. Up there, hikers hear leaves rustling in the wind while you hear water dripping from the tunnel walls; they see dappled sunlight while you see flashlights bobbing like underground fireflies—and one small point of light ahead, a beacon from a mile away. The tunnel is a secret world but not a closed one. A steady breeze brings fresh air through the passage, which is arrow-straight and has a very slight incline. Kids coming through will laugh to stir an echo, and squeal when they find wildlife—salamanders and crayfish live here, so be respectful. And it’s hard not to think about the men who labored here, mostly Irish immigrants and enslaved workers hired out for cash, pitting their strength—and their lives— against the unyielding mountain. When the 4,273-foot Blue Ridge Tunnel was completed in 1858, it was the longest railroad tunnel in North America. Construction was overseen by Claudius Crozet (yes, the town was named for him), a French immigrant and highly trained engineer. When the eastern and western tunnel crews first connected, the two sides were only a few inches off. But it took years before the tunnel was up and running, and Crozet, fed up with management problems, public pressure, and criticism, eventually resigned— three months before the tunnel’s grand opening. He didn’t get to ride on that first ceremonial train. The Blue Ridge railroad tunnel was in service for 86 years—it closed in 1944, when an adjacent tunnel designed for larger locomotives was completed. In 2007, CSX generously donated the property to Nelson County. The Blue Ridge Tunnel Foundation, includVisitors stroll into the darkness of the Blue Ridge Tunnel. ing representatives from

Basketball is back

ope springs eternal in the hearts of Wahoo faithful. First, there’s the hope that the season will be carried out safely, with basketball not endangering the health of players, fans, and the rest of the community. Then, of course, is the hope that the teams will soar. The women are looking to outperform early projections of a bottom-conference finish with a new, untested roster. The men, led by a star transfer, will battle to live up to championship expectations. Last season’s tournaments were canceled by the coronavirus. This year, with precautions in place, we’re hoping a season can be carried out safely. It’s been a turbulent offseason of viral disease, professional drafts, and surprise transfers. But with college basketball finally on the horizon, it’s time to take a look at the familiar faces and new talent seeking to push Virginia’s teams to the top of the rankings this winter.

Sophomore forward Meg Jefferson drives to the bucket.

Building for the future

Freshman guard Kaydan Lawson is among the many new faces on the Cavaliers’ roster.

Those three graduating seniors represented over 60 percent of the Cavaliers’ 2019-20 offensive production. Orange High School in Ohio. And Aaliyah Pitts was named the Class 6A Player of the Year as a junior at Woodbridge High School in 2018-19. The team also added Nycerra Minnis, who averaged 17 rebounds per game in her senior season at Herndon High School, and Deja Bristol, who averaged 12 points and 10 rebounds at Maryland’s New Hope Academy last season. Tina Thompson has her work cut out for her in her third season as head coach. An 8-10 conference record in 2019-20 was an improvement over a tough 2018-19 season, when the team went 5-11 in the ACC. But with a conference coach preseason poll placing Virginia 15th out of 15 in the ACC, Thompson will have to make sure her inexperienced squad doesn’t take a step backwards. The team needs leaders after the loss of its team captain, and scorers after the departure of the only two double-digit producers in Willoughby and Toussaint. Toi and Miller must make the jump from freshmen role players to veteran leaders, and the returning bench players and new freshmen front court will have to be creative in how they fulfill Thompson’s high-energy offensive approach. There will be plenty of competition for starting roles on this brand new Cavalier team. CON T I N UED ON PA G E 19

from Elon, averaged 11.7 points and six rebounds in her last season for the Phoenix and could help around the rim. Virginia was one of the conference’s worst rebounding teams in 2019-20, when the team placed 11th in the ACC in defensive rebounds and 15th on the offensive glass. There are plenty of new faces who could help pick up the slack: The Cavs added five freshmen who are all six feet or taller. Zaria Johnson averaged 13 points and 5.9 rebounds in her senior season at High­tower High School in Texas. Dani Lawson’s younger sister Kaydan Lawson notched 18 points and 3.1 steals per game at

Virginia women’s basketball will rely on fresh faces this year. The team lost the only three players who averaged over 30 minutes per game last season to graduation, with guard Dominique Toussaint, forward Lisa Jablonowski and 2020 10th-overall WNBA draft pick Jocelyn Willoughby saying so long last spring. Those three graduating seniors represented over 60 percent of the Cavaliers’ 2019-20 offensive production. But even team captain Willoughby’s ACC-leading 577 points weren’t enough to drag the Cavaliers up the standings, as the team struggled to a 1317 record. They scored just 61.4 points per game and finished bottom-three in the ACC in scoring for the second consecutive season. Other key players from last season are fleeing in the transfer portal. Guard Shemera Williams, who ranked third in team scoring and appeared in 21 games after joining as one of the country’s top recruits in 2019, is headed to the University of Southern California. Kylie Kornegay-Lucas, who averaged five points over her 29 appearances last season, is expected to transfer as well. Both played over 20 minutes per game. Those departures leave redshirt sophomore guard Amandine Toi and sophomore guard Carole Miller as the only 2019 starters left on the team. Miller averaged six points and 3.6 rebounds per game, making her the most consistent scorer remaining. Toi’s 26 threepointers ranked her behind only Willoughby and Toussaint from beyond the arc.

The starting roster desperately needs reliable double-digit scoring, and where that will come from in 2020-21 remains to be seen. Dani Lawson only made five starts last year and struggled to regularly mark the scoresheet, but she did show flashes of potential with a five-game stretch in which she averaged 13 points per game. Meg Jefferson and Tihana Stojsavljevic both played off the bench and could see increased playing time this year, although they’ll be fighting with six new players for a regular roster spot.

After those four starters, the roster could fluctuate. Sophomore Casey Morsell made 13 starts last season but didn’t quite establish himself, shooting an abysmal 18 percent from three. He’ll compete for minutes at guard with four-star freshman Reece Beekman. Freshman Jabri Abdur-Rahim, another four-star prospect and gifted scorer, could get the start as small forward. Redshirt freshman Kadin Shedrick learned Virginia’s system from the bench during his redshirt season last year, and may see some time on the court this season, while freshman Carson McCorkle will likely take his turn as a redshirt. Coach Tony Bennett ran a relatively tight rotation last year. Only seven Cavaliers averaged more than 10 minutes of playing time per game in 2020. That could change as Bennett tests this year’s deep roster for chemistry and commitment to his system. With tenacious players like Clark and Huff holding down Bennett’s trademark pack-line defense, and clever scorers like Hauser and Abdur-Rahim arriving to create a dynamic offensive punch, this Virginia team has every reason to dream big.

facebook.com/cville.weekly

Virginia’s men’s team, as fans have been happy to point out, remains the nation’s defending champion. This year, it has championship dreams once again, and was ranked No. 4 in the nation in the AP preseason poll. The leaders of that gravity-defying 2019 title squad are long gone—of the seven players who averaged 10 or more minutes per game during the championship season, only junior guard Kihei Clark remains. But a new class is ready to take over. Redshirt senior Sam Hauser made a name for himself in his junior season at Marquette University, where he averaged nearly 15 points a game and showed off his lethal shot on January 15, 2019, with a memorable 31-point outing against Georgetown. On April 8, 2019, Hauser watched the Cavaliers win their first NCAA championship. Exactly one week later, he made public his intention to transfer from Marquette; in May, he announced he would be spending his senior year in Charlottesville. Now that his NCAA-mandated sit-out season is over, the 6'8" power forward is ready to don the blue and orange. That couldn’t come at a better time for a Virginia team looking to cover the gaps left in the roster by graduating seniors Braxton Key and Mamadi Diakite. The key parts of the 2019-20 defense, which held opponents to an ACC-best 52.4

per game and ranking second in team scoring only to Diakite in 2019-20. Senior Tomas Woldetensae honed his long-range shots with 52 three-pointers and earned starts in 22 of 29 games. In addition to those two returning guards comes Huff, a 7'1" center who increased his 2018 4.4-point average to 6.6 points per game in 2019-20 in 18 starts. His height and intimidating wingspan might make him one of the premier centers in the ACC. Cavalier fans are likely to see Hauser, dangerous at both close range and from a

Redshirt senior Jay Huff ranked fourth in the conference with two blocks per game—including an unforgettable 10-block showing in a 52-50 victory over Duke—while junior Kihei Clark ranked in the top 20 by averaging 1.2 steals. To return to the Final Four and beyond, Virginia needs scorers. The Cavaliers ranked last in the ACC last year in offense with an average of 57 points per game. The 2020-21 roster offers scoring in spades. Clark grew as a scorer between his freshman and sophomore seasons, going from 4.5 to 10.8 points

Worldly wear Davon Okoro’s ambitious fashion brand Dépendance Global By Dan Goff living@c-ville.com

MARLEY NICHELLE

L

Davon Okoro turned his childhood interest in clothing fashion into his own label Dépendance Global.

“Growing up, I almost hated my own skin. Now I know my Black is beautiful.” DAVON OKORO

multiplied figure in apparent agony, lit electric purple by its own neurons. A pain scale from zero to 10 runs up one sleeve, and the back of the shirt reads, “PAIN—THE 5TH VITAL SIGN. YOU ARE NOT ALONE GET HELP!” “Nursing is about the human body and how the human body works,” Okoro says. “It’s an art of its own.” Another, called “Black is Beautiful,” speaks to Okoro’s experience living as a Black man. Darine Stern graces the front of the short sleeve button-up, a reprint of the Playboy cover for which she modeled as the magazine’s first African American covergirl. “Growing up, I almost hated my own skin,” Okoro says. “Now I know my Black is beautiful.” Virgil Abloh, a groundbreaking Black designer and entrepreneur, is another influence who served as a

model for Okoro’s self-realization. “When I saw that as a kid, it really motivated me to keep pursuing my dreams,” he says. “I never really got to see African Americans in these positions.” Okoro also lists Kanye West, Yves Saint Laurent, and Louis Vuitton among his inspirations—although, “I grew up in a very low-income neighborhood, so there wasn’t a lot of Louis Vuitton around.” Dépendance Global may still be in its infancy, but Okoro only sees it growing—existing alongside, or maybe even taking precedence over his nursing ambitions. He expects the brand to one day live up to its name, becoming as well known as the projects of his idols. “If you buy a T-shirt, buy a hoodie, I want that to be your favorite T-shirt or hoodie,” says Okoro. “I want people to know that this is a brand for every person. It’s made out of love.”

ike many kids of his generation, Davon Okoro spent a lot of time in front of the TV. But while his peers were watching cartoons, Okoro was finding himself in the groundbreaking styles and fashions of MTV. “I grew up in Nigeria and we didn’t have much money,” he explains. “My mom would go to the thrift store and get us a bunch of graphic tees and jeans.” Okoro saw similar secondhand fits flaunted by the stars of MTV and was inspired. “Ever since I was a kid I had a thing for clothes.” His family left Nigeria and moved to Far Rockaway, New York, on Okoro’s ninth birthday. Today, he’s a second-year nursing student at UVA, and despite pursuing a career in the field of medicine, fashion remains a driving force in his life. In February, he created Dépendance Global, a clothing line of his very own. Dépendance Global (French for “global addiction”) brings together a few of Okoro’s most enduring interests: fashion, but also multiculturalism and the nature of addiction. “I’m trying to bring awareness to the concept [of addiction],” he says. “Maybe it’s a loved one, maybe it’s drugs, maybe it’s money, maybe it’s work—but we can get so caught up in addiction sometimes that we forget who we are.” The global aspect of Okoro’s brand speaks to his own varied and unusual life. The cultures he observed in Nigeria, New York, and now Virginia are all “so different,” he says. Likewise, he doesn’t want Dépendance Global to be limited to any one place or time, and plans to continue his informal anthropology across the world. “I want to go overseas and see how other cultures live.” Okoro says the name refers to his desire to “branch out. I have so many ideas…Dependánce Global is not supposed to be just about one issue.” A brief glance at his brand’s website confirms that neither Okoro nor his clothing plan on being boxed in. He has four products currently for sale online— tees and sweatshirts with creative nods to a variety of influences, from Arabic to basketball to Playboy. One shirt, “Psychological Pain,” was inspired by Okoro’s nursing studies. It features a hunched,

achel De Jong has traveled the world and rubbed elbows with its best chefs. She earned her diplôme de pâtisserie from Le Cordon Bleu École de Cuisine in Paris. She learned hospitality from The Inn at Little Washington’s Patrick O’Connell. And she traded dessert ideas with Ludo Lefebvre at Petit Trois in L.A. But De Jong’s roots are in Charlottesville, and it’s here she’s returned to bake her own way. We recently chatted with De Jong about her new gig as pastry chef at The Workshop in The Wool Factory, the bakery she’s opening, and her illustrious young career. C-VILLE: What brings you back to Charlottesville after eight years away? RDJ: I was at Petit Trois, and I loved it— loved the work, loved my co-workers. But L.A. is expensive, and I found my worklife balance was out of whack. And there is a unique interest in food here. I found out about The Wool Factory, and I asked

Brad [Uhl, of Grit Coffee] if he was interested in a pastry aspect. What was it like working with a brash personality like Ludo Lefebvre? Food is very much his passion. He loves developing the menu and the savory side, but he also has an extensive background in pastry. We collaborated well and had a

lot of fun. Often he would come to me and say something like, “I love fraisier, can we do it?” Or I would bring him something, and we would tweak it. Everything we did there was so classically French.

CULTURE LAST LOOK

TO HELL AND BACK

He must have been a change of pace from Patrick O’Connell. Patrick is just an incredible human. What I learned most from him was about true hospitality and how to take care of guests. He knew how to take something very simple and mundane to another place.

And your first job was at the Baker’s Palette right here in C’ville? I started college at James Madison University but decided I wanted to get my hands dirty. That’s when Sheila [Cervelloni] took me on with no experience. She taught me all she knew. It was a huge help and eye-opening.

Years before the 2020 pandemic, artist Michelle Gagliano developed a fascination with Dante’s Inferno and set out to interpret each of the poem’s 34 cantos through one painting per week. She completed the project, and exhibited it in 2017. But as the virus and social and political unrest escalated this spring, the work called her back. She knew there was hope in Dante’s journey through hell, and she wanted to convey that to the modern world. Enlisting poet/musician Stuart Gunter to react to her work, Gagliano then combined

Gunter’s prose with her paintings to create a book. Originally intended for her sons, the collection evolved into a playful, hopeful, reinterpretation of optimism, just like Dante’s quote: “I saw the beautiful things that the sky holds: and we issued out, from there, to see, again, the stars.” —Tami Keaveny Michelle Gagliano: “My favorite during this period of a boiling political climate is Canto 12, ‘Violence Against Neighbors,’ or ‘Neighbors Against Neighbors.’ The image portrays two couples staring at

each other, one sitting on a big lawn mower, their chins jutted out with angry faces and attitudes. Suburban anger. I painted the background with an image of a clogged artery, thinking how internally toxic we’ve become. Dante traveled inward to self-reflection, and part of that means confronting issues clogging us all.” Stuart Gunter: “I think the whole idea is a testament to Michelle’s artistry—as far as we can determine, she is the first female artist to reinterpret Dante’s Inferno. Her whimsical but intense treatment of each canto really makes me think hell is all the more beautiful and all the more daunting. I think ‘An Everlasting Quarrel’ (Canto 30) is pertinent these days—it puts me in mind of a story I recently heard about a Nelson County octogenarian discussing the fact that if anyone stepped onto her property to install the pipeline that was recently defeated, she would simply shoot them.”

Now that you’re back, what can people expect from you? Technique-wise, I’m a traditionalist. I have always loved French pastry, and all of my work is grounded in that. When I was growing up, my mother and grandmother always had a natural and organic world—wild flowers and growing their own stuff. I like finding ways to bring those two worlds together and elevate classic French pastry, bringing to it a natural, organic, tangible, free style.

Michelle Gagliano and Stuart Gunter’s collaborative reinterpretation of Dante’s Inferno is featured in a virtual artist talk and happy hour hosted by the Gallery at IX on December 3 at 5pm.

@cville_culture

Then after a stint at Gearharts Fine Chocolates, you left. I think everybody goes through a growth period where their hometown feels small. I was ready to be away from Charlottesville. But working at the Inn, I still had connections and kept in touch with those folks. I would come home for holidays and hear what was going on from family and friends.

How did you get into pastry? It started super early on. I come from a large family of five kids, and my mom is an excellent cook, but she doesn’t have a knack for baking. I had a sweet tooth, so I started making cakes and enjoyed it. When it came time to think about a career, I knew it would be in some creative realm. I think it was my dad who finally said, “Pastry can be a career.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sensible Capricorn author E. M. Forster said, “Passion does not blind. No. Passion is sanity.” That’s the opposite of what many poets and novelists have asserted down through the ages, which is that passion isn’t truly passion unless it renders you half-crazy, driven by obsession, and subject to delusion and irrationality. But in offering you counsel in this horoscope, I’m aligning myself with Forster’s view. For you in the coming weeks, Capricorn, passion will help you see clearly and keep you mentally healthy.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Alpine swifts are small birds that breed in Europe during the summer and then migrate long distance to Africa for the winter. Ornithologists were shocked when they discovered that at least some of these creatures fly for more than 200 days without ever once landing on the ground. They’re not always flapping their wings—sometimes they glide—but they manage to do all their eating and drinking and sleeping and mating in midair. Metaphorically speaking, I think it’s important for you to not act like the alpine swifts in the coming months, dear Aquarius. Please plan to come all the way down to earth on a regular basis.

Pisces

Aries (March 21-April 19): “A little too much is just enough for me,” joked poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau. I suspect that when he said that, he was in a phase similar to the one you’re in now. I bet he was experiencing a flood of creative ideas, pleasurable self-ex-

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “You live best as an appreciator of horizons, whether you reach them or not.” Those words from poet David Whyte would be a perfect motto for you to write out on a piece of paper and tape to your bathroom mirror or your nightstand for the next 30 years. Of all the tribes in the zodiac, you Sagittarians are most likely to thrive by regularly focusing on the big picture. Your ability to achieve small day-by-day successes depends on how well you keep the long-range view in mind. How have you been doing lately with that assignment? In the coming weeks, I suspect you could benefit from hiking to the top of a mountain—or the metaphorical equivalent—so you can enjoy seeing as far as you can see. pressions, and loving breakthroughs. He was probably right to risk going a bit too far, because he was learning so much from surpassing his previous limitations and exploring the frontiers outside his comfort zone. Now here’s your homework, Aries: Identify two actions you could take that fit the profile I’ve described here.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Biologists believe that no tree can grow more than 436 feet tall. As much as an individual redwood or spruce or mountain ash might like to sprout so high that it doesn’t have to compete with other trees for sunlight, gravity is simply too strong for it to pump enough water up from the ground to its highest branches. Keep that in mind as a useful metaphor during the next 10 months, Taurus. Your assignment is to grow bigger and taller and stronger than you ever have before—and know when you have reached a healthy level of being bigger and stronger and taller.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): I haven’t felt the savory jolt of bacon in my mouth since I was 15, when I forever stopped eating pigs. I still remember that flavor with great fondness, however. I’ve always said I’d love to find a loophole that would allow me to enjoy it again. And then today I found out about a kind of seaweed that researchers at Oregon State University say tastes like bacon and is healthier than kale. It’s a new strain of a red marine algae called dulse. If I can track it down online, I’ll have it for breakfast soon. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because I suspect that you, too, are primed to discover a fine new substitute—something to replace a pleasure or resource that is gone or taboo or impossible. What could it be?

Cancer (June 21-July 22): By age 49, Cancerian author Norman Cousins had been struck with two debilitating diseases. His physicians gave him a one in 500 chance of recovery. He embarked on a series of unconventional attempts to cure himself, including “laugh therapy” and positive self-talk, among others. They worked. He lived lustily for another 26 years, and wrote several books about health and healing. So perhaps we should pay attention to his belief that “each patient carries his own doctor inside him”—that at least some of our power to cure ourselves resides in inner sources that are not understood or accredited by traditional medicine. This would be a valuable hypothesis for you to consider and test in the coming weeks, Cancerian. (Caveat: But don’t stop drawing on traditional medicine that has been helping you.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): In accordance with astrological rhythms, I’m giving you permission to be extra regal and majestic in the coming weeks. You have a poetic license to be a supremely royal version of yourself, even to the point of wearing a jeweled crown and purple silk robe. Would you prefer a gold scepter with pearls or a silver scepter with rubies? Please keep in mind, though, that all of us non-Leos are hoping you will be a noble and benevolent sovereign who provides enlightened leadership and bestows generous blessings. That kind of behavior will earn you the right to enjoy more of these lofty interludes in the future.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the coming weeks, I will refer to you as The Rememberer. Your task will be to deepen and refine your rela-

tionship with the old days and old ways— both your own past and the pasts of people you care about most. I hope you will take advantage of the cosmic rhythms to reinvigorate your love for the important stories that have defined you and yours. I trust you will devote treasured time to reviewing in detail the various historical threads that give such rich meaning to your web of life.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): “Those who build walls are their own prisoners,” wrote Libran author Ursula K. Le Guin. She continued, “I’m going to fulfill my proper function in the social organism. I’m going to unbuild walls.” I hope that sounds appealing to you, Libra. Unbuilding walls is my first choice for your prime assignment in the coming weeks. I’d love to see you create extra spaciousness and forge fertile connections. I’ll be ecstatic if you foster a rich interplay of diverse influences. If you’re feeling super plucky, you might even help unbuild walls that your allies have used to half-trap themselves.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “If you can’t help me grow, there’s no point with you being in my life.” Singer and actress Jill Scott said that. In my view, Scorpios may be the only sign of the zodiac that can assert such a sentiment with total sincerity and authority. For many of the other tribes, it might seem harsh or unenforceable, but for you it’s exactly right—a robust and courageous truth. In addition to its general rightness, it’s also an especially apt principle for you to wield right now. The coming weeks will be a potent time to catalyze deep learning and interesting transformations in concert with your hearty allies.

(Feb. 19-March 20): There’s substantial evidence that when people talk to themselves out loud in the midst of doing a task, they improve their chances of succeeding at the task. Have you ever heard athletes giving themselves verbal encouragement during their games and matches? They’re using a trick to heighten their performance. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to experiment with this strategy in the coming weeks. Increase your brainpower by regularly offering yourself encouraging, supportive instructions. It’s fine if you just sort of whisper them, but I’d love it if now and then you also bellowed them.

Q&A

How do you think the defending national champion UVA men’s basketball team will do this year? The UVA basketball team will do well this season. We’ll have great defense as always, but our recruits and transfers will give added scoring, and our returning players will give opponents fits. Go Hoos!

Probably not too well. I imagine they’ll spend a lot of time on their couches at home, since the idea of playing college sports during an uncontrolled pandemic is beyond absurd.

Karen Kocik and Tom Stephens are two inspiring individuals who did not hesitate to show a helpful hand to neighbors in need in a midst of a global pandemic. This year has been especially hard for local low-income families and senior citizens and these two volunteers stepped up to manage projects that helped those most affected by the pandemic. Karen, as Volunteer Project Manager, worked throughout the spring of 2020 on the renovation of the Orange Senior Center. Over 80 seniors are now enjoying a redesigned and beautiful community center! Karen stated, “I notice the capacity to quickly adapt and rebound at BGF. Always. Oh, we can’t do something this way, let’s do it that way. That is very evident to me with this organization.” Karen has volunteered over 200 hours with Building Goodness Foundation (BGF) over 10 years on six projects including one in Pearlington, MS. Tom volunteered over the summer to be BGF project manager for our Abundant Life project. Abundant Life staff can now conduct programs in a new, sheltered space outside for everyone’s safety. Tom has volunteered over 420 hours with BGF over 15 years on more than 20 projects including a trip to Haiti. Both the Orange Senior Center and Abundant Life project engaged over 70 volunteers totaling over 300 volunteer hours. BGF adapted local work to address COVID-19 and volunteer groups by creating small shifts to keep people socially distanced and safe, creating shorter shifts to reduce the exposure to multiple people, and requiring masks when on the job site. Working with BGF, Skip Wootten embodied the spirit of community, quality craftsmanship, and volunteerism. Through this award, BGF honors Skip’s approach to life and recognizes the outstanding service of a current volunteer. About Building Goodness Foundation: Founded in 1999, Building Goodness Foundation is a Charlottesville based nonprofit construction organization. We connect skilled volunteers from the design and construction industries

Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc. is proud to announce that it’s been accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) for a two-year term. TAA-accredited organizations undergo a thorough application and inspection process prior to accreditation to ensure they meet the TAA’s extensive Code of Standards that reviews the organization’s operations, education, horse health care management, facility standards and services, and adoption policies and protocols. “We are incredibly honored to be part of the TAA network,” said Maya Proulx, Executive Director of Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue. “This is a culmination of a year’s work, making sure we had all of the requirements in place. The entire process has made us a better organization overall.” Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue joins 80 other accredited organizations in North America and is one of only four TAAaccredited organizations in Virginia. The TAA further works with these organizations to award grants to assist in retraining and rehoming retired Thoroughbreds. Ongoing updates and re-inspections are required of all organizations as a condition of TAA accreditation. Thoroughbreds are one of the most common breeds of horses Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue has taken in over its 12year history. “People don’t often think about what happens to a racehorse after they leave the track,” said Proulx. “Rescue operations help retrain those horses as great trail horses, eventing and hunter/jumpers, or retired companion horses. The possibilities for these majestic animals are endless.” About Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc.: Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in central Virginia, has taken in over 335 horses, donkeys, ponies, mules, and miniature horses since 2008. The organization works with Animal Control agencies and owners surrendering their animals. Hope’s Legacy rescues, rehabilitates, and whenever possible, adopts out equines to new, loving, and well-matched homes. More information is available at www.hopeslegacy.com.

Downton’s latest condos are in the Eleven:30 project on East High Street.

North Downtown & Belmont:

historic & happening BY KEN WILSON

S

ue Foster grew up in the city of Charlottesville but lived out in the country for 42 years. “I couldn’t wait to get back in town,” she says of her move to the North Downtown neighborhood 23 years ago. “I love the city sounds, the sidewalks, the people walking by, the streetlights. I have always loved North Downtown. One reason I moved here was to relocate my bed and breakfast,

and this was the perfect place to do so.” Of course it was. With its lovely Jeffersonian architecture, its leafy streets, and its proximity to the city’s most attractive restaurant, shopping and entertainment area as well as to Route 250, the neighborhood just to the north of all this history and handsomeness is one of the most desirable in the city. Officially designated North Downtown, this historic district runs from

McIntire Road at its western edge, just across from McIntire Park, north along Park Street, whose stately and historic homes are the largest in the area, south to the railroad tracks, crossing them at Avon Street. Single-family homes, apartments and condominiums may be found throughout the area. Take an uphill stroll on leafy 2nd Street NE, slowly if you must, or slowly just to enjoy the lovely old trees and

the handsome old brick homes. Cross East High Street to East Jefferson. A block east is Holy Comforter Catholic Church, dating to 1906 or so, and down one more, beside the Albemarle County Court Building, is Court Square Park. The square is the oldest section of the city and was its first commercial center. Some buildings here date to the early 1800s. The carefully restored homes in Court Square date as far back as late 17th

historic, line nearby Park Street. But don’t stop now, keep heading south. Continue past First United Methodist Church and Emancipation Park on your right and Albemarle Historical Society, original home of Charlottesville’s first public library, and its successor, the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, on your left at Market Street. The next short block slopes downward, and there you are on the Downtown Mall—an eight-block stretch bounded by the Omni Hotel at its west and the Sprint Pavilion on its east. A busy commercial street in the early 20th century, today it’s a bricked-over, tree-lined pedestrian’s delight, with mature willow oaks, planted in 1976, and the same, varied and lovingly detailed old buildings, now brimming with bookstores and coffee shops, bars and bistros, galleries and historic theaters. Claim a spot at one of the restaurants or cafes with outdoor seating (coffee will keep you warm), relax, hail a passing friend or two, or just sit back and watch the dogs and dog walkers. You may feel like you’re in Europe, but you’re actually in the heart of the city. “The Downtown Mall,” as Cynthia Viejo Associate Broker with Nest Realty puts it, “is the soul of Charlottesville.” The Violet Crown Theater, currently operating on a limited schedule, is the place to enjoy classic, independent and newly released Hollywood films while enjoying beer, wine, cocktails, and fancy bites. The Virginia Discovery Museum

the booths at Charlottesville City Market on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon in good times are stocked with fresh fruit and produce, coffee, eats, and arts and crafts. Currently Charlottesville City Market to Go offers COVID-safe drive through pickup. Over on Perry Avenue and McIntire, Transfiguration Greek Orthodox serves delicious meals at its Greek Food Fests, each spring and fall.

Condominium Living The condos at stately 500 Court Square, located on a high ridge two blocks off of the Mall, are the oldest in the area. Originally the Monticello Hotel, the building was designed by the renowned architect Stanhope Johnson but renovated and converted to residential and commercial use in the 1970s. The upper eight floors hold residential condominiums. As one of the tallest buildings in Charlottesville, 500 Court Square has commanding views of the southwest mountains and the Albemarle County Court House. Many of its two- and threebedroom condos have undergone complete or partial renovations. With two bedrooms, one bath and 1,004 square feet in all, Apartment 904, with an estimated value of $424,163 is typical. Roger Voisinet, Associate Broker with ReMax Realty Specialists, moved to Charlottesville in 1977 from Montreal. In 1980 Voisinet became one of the first people to live on the Mall when he moved into its first condominium conversion buildings at 107 W. Main St.

Just a block off the Mall, the Colonial Revival style brick building now housing the McGuffey Art Center dates to 1916 and was originally McGuffey School. First Fridays browsers see monthly exhibits and open studios of local artists. Classes are offered as well. Steps away is the McGuffey Park playground. The grey stone and stained-glass windowed building across the street is Christ Episcopal, whose cornerstone was laid in 1895. Beautiful brick Congregation Beth Israel on East Jefferson is a Reform synagogue, dedicated in 1883 on the site of Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, rebuilt in 1904 and attractively added to in the late 1990s. Not far away is Renaissance School, a college preparatory high school for high ability students in the arts, sciences, and/ or humanities. Close by is Village School, serving girls in grades five through eight. Back on Market Street, Market Street Market grocery sells staples and indulgences. Across the Mall on Water Street

With homes today averaging a little under $235,000 in value, Belmont attracts young families and eager renovators, as well as sharp-minded investors. It’s also the place to find some of the most exciting food in what’s become well known as a foodie lover’s town. Small plates lovers flock to Mas Tapa, with its brilliant contemporary takes on traditional Spanish dishes. The wood-fired oven is the star at Lampo Neapolitan Pizzeria, which offers anti-pasta and more besides its seven different “Pizze.” Tavola serves rustic Italian fare in an elegant atmosphere, and Quality Pie, with its dinerstyle ambience in the historic Spudnuts donut shop, offers sophisticated comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

the building of the Old Belmont Bridge in 1905. This bridge stood until 1961 when the New Belmont Bridge that connects Ninth Street and Avon Street replaced it. While the neighborhood was middle and upper class, during the early 1900s, it was also the site of a carousel, a carnival, a circus lot near the railroad tracks, and an annual gypsy camp no less. Starting in 1941 its southeast corner held the Albemarle Livestock Market, and a number of small pig farms, giving rise among more well-to-do Charlottesvillians to the belittling nickname “Hogwaller.” More recently a sleepy, lower middle class community, Belmont began attracting young professionals and creative folks in earnest in the early 2000s, as commercial and residential prices nearer the Mall skyrocketed. Today, with its crosswalks, trees, and planters, and buildings dating back to the early 1900s, it maintains its

The area’s latest condos are in the Eleven:30 project on East High Street. Ten residential condos designed for work-at-home professionals surround a landscaped courtyard with two commercial condos in the front facing East High Street. Each of the two commercial condos has a one-bedroom apartment on the second floor which can either be used by the office or leased separately as a residence. “This is the only project of its kind that has a courtyard concept and a medium density footprint,” Voisinet says. “In a little over half an acre we have $5 million of real estate and 12 condominiums. Two out of the twelve condos are zoned commercial, so we have two building companies who have bought the condos and they have an apartment upstairs that they rent out or they use for their own purposes.”

operated farms for its hearty American fare, and for the area craftsmen whose talents grace the building and the beautifully appointed interior with local artists’ paintings and stained glass works. Three-acre Belmont Park boasts large shady oak trees, benches, picnic shelters, a playground and basketball court, and restrooms—not to mention panoramic, 360-degree views of the city and the Blue Bridge Mountains. The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, on Monticello Road just across the Belmont Bridge from the Mall, bills itself as an “inclusive organization serving artists and thinkers who want to share knowledge, challenge one another, and engage in the progressive expression of diverse ideas.” Its goal is to bridge diverse communities through the arts. Homebuyers looking for recent construction can find it at Belmont Station, which opened in 2017 and offers a total of 40 units in two customizable townhome plans with sizes ranging from 1487 to 2239 square feet. Twenty-two Belmont Station homes sold in 2019; prices ranged from $327,005 to $433,002. The warehouse-style loft building called Belmont Lofts features 42 residences—studios to luxury penthouses with roof terraces overlooking Downtown and Monticello to the east—ranging in size from 800 to 2,200 square feet. Residents enjoy award-winning architectural design and a three-acre park with a garden. One Belmont Lofts home sold in 2019, for $403,750. Twenty-seven three-level Belmont Village townhomes are located on the corner of Monticello and Quarry Roads. Six homes sold in in 2019 for prices from $285,500 to $306,000. Forty-one single family homes sold in Belmont in 2019, for prices ranging from $140,000 to $582,000.

Low inventory and low interest rates make for a robust home market. Go have a look!
