I received a postcard in the mail today from Congressman Bob Good. He’s inviting seniors in his district to contact him if in need of assistance signing up for Medicare during the open enrollment period this fall. Frankly, I thought he viewed Medicare as some sort of Socialist conspiracy, designed to rob citizens of their hardearned dollars and personal liberties. Especially since, among other things, he voted against extending Affordable Care Act subsidies through 2025, which would ensure continued access to health insurance for millions of Americans. And against authorizing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices with pharmaceutical companies. And against the appropriation of emergency funding to address the critical shortage of infant formula across the U.S. And against capping the cost of insulin at $35 per month for citizens in need of this medication. And against health care and related support services to veterans exposed to toxic burn pits during their military service. Funny, but I also don’t recall receiving a similar mailer from Good in the past. Perhaps help with Medicare paperwork—or anything else for that matter—is only available to constituents during an election year? Makes you wonder… John Deegan Palmyra

THIS WEEK

Hello, Charlottesville! Thank you for reading C-VILLE Weekly. In this week’s issue, we bring you an incredible story by Courteney Stuart about a woman who retrieved her father’s remains decades after he died serving in WWII (p. 18). Linda Chauvin’s commitment to the search before and after the advent of the internet—and through a pandemic—is admirable and inspiring. Stuart spoke with Chauvin about the long journey to bring her father home to an American cemetery. Gene went missing in action after being shot down over Belgium in 1944. Though Chauvin has faint memories of her dad, she was determined to find him. She educated herself on

9.21.22

the details of the war, linked up with historians and fellow pilots, and urged the U.S. military to aid her in her search. As she made headway, some revelations even came by happenstance, such as

a moment when someone in Belgium tripped over a steel chunk of Gene’s crashed aircraft. Stories like Chauvin’s serve to show just how recent historical events like WWII really are. Evidence of those monumental and traumatic moments are still buried in the ground. They’re vivid enough in our collective memory that people like Chauvin are still picking up the pieces

CONFLIC

and trying to make sense of it all. As time marches on, it will be these accounts that we rely on to contextualize history for new generations.—Richard DiCicco

­—the ACLU of Virginia, speaking out against Governor Glenn Youngkin’s controversial new transgender student policy

NEWS IN BRIEF

Tuition rebate The University of Virginia will give in-state undergraduate students a one-time $690 rebate to pay them back for the 4.7 percent tuition increase for the 2022-23 school year. The school’s Board of Visitors voted on September 16 to join 13 other public state institutions in keeping tuition flat, as requested by Governor Glenn Youngkin earlier this year. Students will see the rebates—which will cost UVA $7.5 million—on their accounts during the current semester and spring 2023 semester.

fter years of increasing vacancies and rumors of big development plans, Fashion Square Mall has a new owner: Home Depot. The Atlanta-based hardware big-box company purchased the entire property at the corner of Seminole Trail and Rio Road, minus the Belk Women’s store and the former JCPenny location on September 1, according to Athena Emmans, marketing manager for Jones Lang LaSalle, the company that manages the site.

“Our teams are all working together to create a plan for the future,” Emmans wrote in an emailed response to questions last week. Home Depot’s corporate office did not respond to a request for comment, but Emmans says all current leases will continue, and the mall is actively seeking new tenants. “In the past several months, we have or will be opening just over 31,000 square feet of new retail including Bintastic, Elite Empire, Snap Trapp and Nails Next Door with

an additional five new tenants before the holidays,” writes Emmans. The Home Depot purchase isn’t the only recent development at the site. This summer, Albemarle County supervisors approved a plan to spend millions to convert the former JCPenney into a public safety operations center. The space will be used for a variety of purposes, including parking, maintenance, and storage of emergency vehicles and other gear.

And on September 18 at around 12:43am, the CPD responded to a multiple shots fired call in the area of Ninth Street NW and West Street. Officers found shell casings on the 800 block of Hardy Avenue.

One person was killed in a small plane crash in Albemarle County on September 14. Shortly before 11:30pm, county officials received a distress call from an unidentified pilot of a private, single-engine plane, and attempted to help him land at Charlottesville Albemarle Airport, but the plane was unable to make it, according to Virginia State Police. The plane crashed and caught fire in a wooded area near Plank and Stillhouse Creek roads. The pilot was the only occupant, and died in the crash.

On September 10, the Charlottesville Police Department responded to a shots fired incident on the 300 block of East Main Street on the Downtown Mall at around 6:40pm. In a press release issued four days after the crime, the department reported that there were no injuries or property damage, but offered no additional information. On September 15, a Charlottesville police officer reported to the Emergency Communications Center that he “was out with a wanted suspect with whom he was familiar with” at around 4:22pm, according to a city press release. The suspect soon fled in his vehicle at a high speed, and crashed into multiple cars at intersections surrounding Elliott Avenue. As officers approached the suspect’s vehicle, he shot himself. Emergency personnel later declared the suspect deceased. Anyone with additional

Multiple Virginia schools, including Culpeper, Lynchburg, and Shenandoah County, were locked down after receiving false threats the same afternoon.

Charlottesville’s Planning Commission voted against a controversial rezoning proposal that would build up to 72 new apartments and a daycare center in the Locust Grove neighborhood.

Councilor Michael Payne urged the developers to align with the city’s draft inclusionary zoning policy and require new developments (with 10 or more units) to set aside at least 10 percent of units as affordable housing for households making 60 percent or less of the AMI—for at least 99 years. The developers are open to dropping the 90-day vacancy rule, and now want to make all the affordable units up to 80 percent AMI, the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority’s payment standard, said engineer Justin Shimp, who represented the developers. “If someone has a voucher, they qualify for that standard.” Shimp argued that the seven units could remain affordable after 10 years—Wickham

Pond, a similar development in Crozet, still has affordable units today, five years after its affordability period ended. But “I can’t think of a project that’s got 30-year, 99-year [affordability] without some kind of subsidy,” said Shimp. “This [development] is like a $200,000 basically donation to affordable housing, when you make these sort of reduced-rent restrictions.” Commissioners expressed additional concerns about the development’s impact on traffic, as well as pedestrian and transit connectivity in the surrounding neighborhood, particularly incomplete and inadequate sidewalks. Shimp replied that there are five CAT bus stops within a five-minute walk from the proposed site, and the developers are “open

and willing to fill in those two missing pieces of sidewalk” on River Vista Avenue. Ahead of last week’s meeting, Neighborhood Development Services staff also recommended denying the rezoning request, arguing that the development’s infrastructure and affordability issues do not comply with the city’s new comprehensive plan. “Staff is concerned that while the proposed development includes multiple smaller buildings, these buildings are not ‘house‐sized’ in relation to the surrounding neighborhood,” which largely consists of single-family homes, reads the staff report, “[and] that no improvements to the existing River Vista Avenue CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

fter several hours of discussion, Charlottesville’s Planning Commission recommended City Council deny a controversial rezoning proposal that would build up to 72 new apartments and a daycare center in the Locust Grove neighborhood. During a September 13 joint meeting, the commission cited issues with the project’s affordable units and infrastructure. However, commissioners and councilors expressed general support for the highdensity development—which has received criticism from dozens of neighbors—and remained open to approving a revised proposal in the near future. The proposal asks to rezone two empty lots next to Mount View Baptist Church on St. Clair Avenue from two-family residential to planned unit development, allowing the developers, led by Craig Builders, to build a mixture of efficiency, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units that would appear as a series of linked townhomes. The development would feature a central greenspace and a multi-use path within the Otter Street right-of-way that would be constructed to connect Landonia Circle and St. Clair Avenue. The church has also expressed interest in opening a daycare, which the PUD zoning would permit. Seven of the new units would be set aside as affordable housing. While four would be reserved for households making less than 65 percent of the area median income, three would be for households making less than 80 percent—however, an affordable unit could become available to higher earners if it remains vacant for longer than 90 days, and all affordable units would convert to market rate after 10 years, per the current proposal. Planning commissioners criticized the project’s short affordability period, and pushed for it to accept housing vouchers.

sidewalk network are proposed. The existing network on the southern side of River Vista Avenue … includes multiple gaps where no sidewalk exists. Staff is also concerned that no pedestrian connection through Landonia Circle to Long Street (Route 250 Bypass) is provided.” During public comment, multiple neigh­ borhood residents spoke out against the development, echoing concerns brought up by commissioners and city staff. Eliza­ beth Hand claimed the high number of units was not “consistent” with the neighbor­ hood, while Elizabeth Alcorn pointed to the area’s traffic problems. “Two weeks ago one of my neighbors [had] her car totaled while it was parked on Calhoun Street because of the narrow width of the street and the heavy traffic— until this problem is fixed, there should be no development going on in the neighbor­ hood,” said Alcorn. Some neighbors, though, urged the city to approve the high-density development. Former city councilor Kristin Szakos re­ flected on the many proposals for denser housing she saw denied “because they were not perfect.” “The results of those years of denials and of zoning that encouraged large houses on individual lots is that our city is experiencing a crisis,” said Szakos. “This project is not perfect, but it offers what I hope will be one of many responses to that crisis—we need housing.”

“Our neighborhood looking ahead is never going to become walkable until we increase the density to support nonresidential mixed uses. Lack of density is what’s holding back walkability in our neighborhood,” added Josh Krahn. Over the past few months, several dozen other neighborhood residents have sent the commission emails urging it to deny the rezoning request, criticizing the proj­ ect’s high density, increased traffic, parking needs, and other concerns. “THERE WILL BE A DISRUPTION OF NEIGHBORHOOD INTEGRITY AND VALUES … THIS INCREASE IN POPULATION DENSITY IS A SERIOUS ASSAULT ON THE NEEDS OF EXISTING RESIDENTS,” reads one email included in last week’s meeting packet. Around a dozen neighbors sent messages in support of the project, praising it for bringing more diverse housing op­ tions to Locust Grove. Councilor Juandiego Wade expressed concerns about the affordable units, while Councilor Brian Pinkston encouraged the developers to address traffic issues—but felt the proposal was “in general, a good project in a good place.” “This is the kind of density of a project that our zoning rewrite encourages … so I want to figure out how we can get to yes,” said Payne. “I just don’t think the afford­ ability proffers are quite there yet.” The developers will work with city staff over the next few weeks to improve their proposal, before it goes before City Council for a vote next month.

plethora of products and services will be exhibited in 40 booths at this year’s Black Business Expo, the annual event that celebrates local Blackowned businesses. In addition to vendors, the day-long affair will feature DJ sets, live music, panel discussions, and a competition with cash prizes totaling $1,500 for the two best business pitches. The Expo began in September 2017, a month after the deadly Unite the Right rally. Ty Cooper, a filmmaker and director of the Expo, teamed up with WTJU to bring the event to fruition in hopes of unifying the community during a divisive time. “We just wanted to do something, and felt as though trying to lift up Black businesses in this community, particularly in a community with a checkered past, would be ideal,” says Cooper of the event, which takes place on Saturday, September 24, at Ix Art Park from 10am to 7pm. “We wanted to be ... not a beacon of hate because of what happened, and ... more of a beacon of hope, more of a beacon of support.” Exhibitors include insurance companies, accountants, real estate agents, clothing and accessory vendors, nonprofit organizations, and more. Booths will advertise their respective businesses and services, but Cooper says he doesn’t want the Expo to feel like a “flea market.” “We really want to highlight that Black businesses are in various spaces, and a lot of people just do not know that they exist,” he says. “The idea of the Black Business Expo is to give them that platform, so that they can gain exposure and be introduced to more people.” This year’s three panels will last an hour each, and cover business financing, marketing strategies, and emergent industries. The Business Pitch Contest is intended to support the visions of people who otherwise may not have the money to start their own companies. Previous winners have gone on to do exciting things, says Cooper. Cassandra Rodriguez founded the restaurant Vegan Comforts Soul Food in 2021, and is planning to purchase a food truck. Revella Warega, president of Revella Consulting Group, which specializes in the rail construction industry, is a panelist, as well as a judge for the Business Pitch Contest.

A first generation immigrant, Warega came to the U.S. to get a college degree, but began working toward the dream of owning her own business. After being laid off from her administrative job during the Great Recession, Warega started her own company in an industry that lacked minority women-owned businesses. While the journey was difficult, she says in the long run, it was worth it. “It was tough, I can tell you that, but it never ends because business is always an ebb and flow,” Warega says. “There’s highs and lows no matter which year it is.” After 12 years and the corresponding amount of gray hairs, Warega is finally exactly where she wants to be. “Now I have clients that call and say, ‘Hey, we’re pursuing this, are you interested?’ Or, ‘We have this coming up, we want to include your team,’” she says. “And as a small business, that’s what you want to aim for— where you don’t need them, they need you.” Cooper emphasizes that the Expo is open to everyone, and encourages folks of all backgrounds to attend. “When people hear Black Business Expo, they may think it’s [only] for Black people. That’s not the case,” says Cooper. “It’s open to anyone, to everyone. The whole idea is to bring people together to support and celebrate these Black businesses.”

A daughter’s search By Courteney Stuart courteney@c-ville.com

O

name was originally spelled with a C. Gene Shauvin said he wanted to legally change it to Chauvin when he got back from the war, and Linda honored that wish when she changed the spelling of her last name in 1971). This month, Chauvin returned to the site of the crash and to a memorial to the missing in the Netherlands, where she affixed a stone rosette next to her father’s name. The symbol shows that Gene Shauvin has been found, thanks in large part to his daughter’s stubborn streak. It’s a trait she likely inherited from him.

n a sunny afternoon in July, hundreds of people looked on as a 737 touched down at the Spokane International airport. Sitting in a shuttle bus on the tarmac, surrounded by family and friends, Linda Chauvin watched the scene unfold with a mix of grief and exhilaration. “The excitement was actually so palpable. We see this beautiful big bird come down and land, and then they open that cargo door and there was the honor guard, and then that coffin there,” she recalls with a sob. “I mean, he was finally home after 78 years.” For Chauvin, who lives in Fry’s Spring, that moment on the tarmac was the culmination of decades of work and a lifetime of wondering what really happened to her father, Eugene Shauvin, a WWII pilot who’d been missing in action since his plane was shot down over Belgium on September 17, 1944. (The Chauvin family

After nearly eight decades, a WWII hero’s remains come home

Linda Chauvin recently visited a memorial to the missing in the Netherlands, where a stone rosette will be placed next to her WWII pilot father’s name to show that his remains have been found.

Over 20 years, Chauvin took multiple trips to the farm in Retie, Belgium, where her father’s plane had crashed. She pushed for the U.S. military to conduct several archaeological digs at the site, and finally on March 3 of this year, she received a call from Fort Knox that DNA testing had confirmed the human remains unearthed at the site last year were her father’s. “I let out a scream. I burst into tears,” says Chauvin. Chauvin has hazy memories of her father, whom she last saw when she was a toddler in the early 1940s growing up in Washington state. She recalls attending a movie with him and losing her shoe during the show. “I remember when he would hold me while wearing his uniform. Everything was uncomfortable against my body,” she says. Family members described Gene Shauvin as determined, athletic, and always seeking ways to improve himself. “Everybody, including my mother, said he had a very quick temper, but that he was also always quick to apologize,” Chauvin says. “And he was good-natured and witty as well.” One of nine children, Shauvin and five of his brothers served their country during WWII. Gene enlisted in the National Guard at 18 in 1936, and married Linda’s mother in 1940. Linda was born the following year, and in 1943, a year before his death, he enlisted in the Army Air Borne division. He deployed for Europe and never came home. Linda Chauvin says her childhood after his death was plagued by longing. “There was always this hollow feeling. And I think I just always felt like I didn’t belong to anybody,” Chauvin says. In high school, she read everything she could about the war. “When I would find out somebody had known him, I would question them, give them the third-degree.” It wasn’t until the arrival of the internet in the 1990s that she began her search for her father in earnest. She started by posting a request for information about his mission on a WWII message board. “I got all these hits from people that I later realized were all serious researchers and historians, and one of them was a man in Ohio,” she says. “He wrote back, ‘I think I may be able to help you.’” That man told her about Pathfinders, the pilots who flew ahead of Allied airborne invasions marking the way for planes carrying paratroopers that followed. Shauvin had been the pilot of one of six planes flying ahead of a massive airborne mission, Operation Market-Garden, which aimed to create an Allied route into Germany. The man suggested she get in touch with Charles Faith, another airborne soldier who’d been aboard her father’s plane when it crashed. “When I called him and I said, ‘I’m the daughter of your pilot in Operation Market-Garden.’ Oh, my God. He let out a cry,” she said. “Gene was a wonderful pilot and a wonderful man,” he told her. On a subsequent trip to Texas, Faith described her father’s final moments as the plane flew toward Eindhoven in Holland. “It was picked off by anti-aircraft artillery that were located near Retie, Belgium,” she says. “Smoke was billowing out from the cockpit and the jump light was on,” Faith told her. As jump master, Faith was the first out. In all, six of the men aboard were able to jump; the remaining nine perished. On the ground, Faith evaded capture and was sheltered from the Nazis by a Belgian family. “All of his life he wondered about me because he knew Gene had a wife and daughter. And he welcomed me as if I was his own daughter,” Chauvin says. When Chauvin met Faith, he had already been back to the Belgian town where the crash had occurred. Faith had located other people who knew more, including a relative of another paratrooper who’d died aboard the plane and a Dutch woman whose father had painstakingly documented WWII crash sites across Europe. “She is the one who went over to Belgium and found the crash site. She was like a bloodhound. She inherited all of her father’s records,” Chauvin says.

Earlier this month, Linda Chauvin returned to a farm in Retie, Belgium, where there’s a Pathfinder memorial stone that marks the site where her father’s plane was shot down on September 17, 1944.

of Spokane. Well over 100 people attended, many of them military members there to honor one of their own, missing for 78 years. A C-47 flew overhead, and TV cameras captured the moments before 2nd Lt. Eugene Shauvin was finally laid to rest in an American cemetery alongside members of his family. “It was really something to see,” says Chauvin. Now 81, Chauvin says the search for her father gave her the answers she’d long sought—and a lot more. “I have new friends and much, much closer relationships with cousins,” she says. Her search for her father also led her to romance with a Belgian historian whose expertise in WWII history brought him to Retie during her visits. “He’s been here to Charlottesville twice. And then I met him in Dallas in June, and we flew out to Seattle. He’s met all my family. We’ve been to Spokane, and he just fell in love with it out there,” she says. Her mother died last fall at age 99, months before the positive identification of her spouse was made, but Chauvin had shared that remains had been found. And Chauvin says she’s comforted by the idea that her father is now truly at peace. “Several people have said to me, ‘Linda, he would be so proud of you,’” she says. “I bet he is.”

had been identified and repatriated but not Shauvin’s. At a 2015 event in Norfolk for families of MIA soldiers, Chauvin presented her investigative files and made another request for an excavation of the grave sites. The case was reopened, and Chauvin says it would be years and multiple frustrating setbacks before any more action was taken. Finally, in spring of 2021, the excavation happened. After overcoming pandemic-related travel restrictions with the help of Belgian citizens and diplomats, Chauvin moved into an RV next to the crash site. A team of 24 people worked for 70 days. “They got there in April, and you can’t believe what all they did,” she says. After the digging was complete, Chauvin returned to the excavation site with the Belgian family and received another sign. “This big white bird flew down out of nowhere, and it flew over that rectangle that had been a big excavation unit. It flew about 18 inches off the ground, back and forth, like in a grid. ... It was like it was healing that area. And then it flew off. We were dumbfounded.” Six months later, Chauvin got the news she’d been waiting her whole life to hear: She’d found her father. After Gene Shauvin’s remains were repatriated in July, Chauvin held the long-delayed funeral in his hometown

September 21 – 27, 2022 c-ville.com

In 2000, Chauvin, a Pathfinder historian, and the family who live at the crash site began working as a team to establish a Pathfinders memorial at the site. After securing support from the local government, that memorial became a reality in 2001. The descendants of the family at the crash site hosted Chauvin, Faith, and other relatives of men on the plane for the dedication of the Pathfinder memorial marking the spot Gene Shauvin and eight other U.S. soldiers lost their lives. Chauvin, accompanied by her mother, two of her surviving uncles, cousins, and her new Belgian friends went to the site for the dedication and stood in the field where the plane went down. “Everybody started yelling at me … pointing up to a tree,” she recalls. “There was this big, light-colored bird sitting there watching.” As she moved around, she says, the bird kept watching her. The field had been plowed many times, and the owner of the property assured her no remnants of the plane would be found. But as darkness fell and the group walked across the field, the owner tripped on something. A big piece of steel. Part of the plane. “To me, that bird embodies the souls of those people who died on that plane and that they wanted to be found,” she says. Chauvin began pushing for an excavation of the site, and a team from the Army’s Central I.D. Lab in Hawaii, now part of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency first sent a team in 2002. In 2003, Chauvin participated in an archaeological dig of the site. “It was a big honor to be able to do that,” she says. “But all of a sudden, the colonel in charge, the archaeologist, just said, ‘Okay, we’re done.’” Chauvin says that team never excavated two temporary graves where the crew and paratroopers’ remains had been buried after the crash. Eight of the fallen men’s remains

And according to lead singer Stefan Babcock, chaos is where PUP feels most at home, saying “there is nothing more PUP than a slow and inevitable descent into self-destruction.” The record kicks off with “Four Chords,” also referred to as “the stupidest piano ballad of all time” by Babcock. Other highlights include the mournful, anthemic “Matilda,” and “Robot Writes A Love Song,” a nervy, synth-filled tune written from the perspective of a computer being overwhelmed unto death by human emotions. $27-30, 8pm.

A

ncient Greek philosopher Pythagoras sought to find harmony, or the “music of the spheres,” in the vibrations of planets as they orbited through space. Two thousand years later, Music Director Benjamin Rous is bringing the music of the spheres to Charlottesville in a surprising way: with harmonicas. In Sonic Spheres, the opening show of the Charlottesville Symphony’s 48th season, eight orchestra members will trade their French horns for harmonicas to imitate what celestial vibrations might sound like for a performance of “Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres).” Rous has taken his baton everywhere from the National Symphony Orchestra to the Buffalo Philharmonic, but this score by American composer Missy Mazzoli is the only instance in which he has conducted harmonicas. “She does these wonderful crossfades between different keys that you could only really do with harmonica,” Rous says. “It’s quite brilliant, how she’s embodied this idea of the music of the spheres based on the idea of orbiting planets having a frequency, and being in harmony with each other.” To avoid getting lost in orbiting chords, Rous must sharpen his conducting style to help his orchestra members find the rhythm of the Sinfonia. “They walk in and out in this kind of hazy outer-space way, instead of progressing in the straightforward and almost rectangular way that classical music changes harmony,” Rous says. The five pieces featured in Sonic Spheres are designed to keep audiences’ attention with short jaunts into different genres, from Mazzoli’s celestial imaginings to Johannes Brahms’ “Hungarian Dances” to Johann Hummel’s classical bassoon concerto. This bassoon concerto demands quick and complicated playing on one of the most difficult orchestral instruments to master, making it the perfect way to display the technical proficiency of principal bassoonist Elizabeth Roberts. As a child in Alexandria, Virginia, Roberts fell in love with the bassoon, but wasn’t allowed to take up the massive instrument until after she graduated elementary school. The moment her mom picked her up from the last day of sixth grade, Roberts excitedly directed her to the middle school to borrow her first bassoon. Not only is the bassoon heavy, but finger positioning is notably difficult. Unlike clarinet or flute, where the instrument rests on a musician’s steady thumb, bassoonists’ supporting thumbs move to cover five different keys beneath the right hand and ten under the left. Many bassoonists run, bike, or swim,

The Charlottesville Symphony, conducted by Benjamin Rous, opens its 2022-23 season with Sonic Spheres at Old Cabell Hall on Saturday, September 24 at 8pm. Tickets are available at cvillesymphony.org.

Elizabeth Roberts

Roberts says, to stay fit enough in order to span the keys with agility. “The same way athletes train, you have to train as performers, from the physical to the expressive side,” Roberts says. Roberts’ technical abilities were shaped by former Juilliard instructors Arthur Weisberg, who honed her technical skills, and Stephen Maxym, who taught her how to play expressively. Now a teacher herself in Charlottesville, she finds herself reflecting on them in her own lessons. “What is really nice about teaching music is you’re helping another human being find an expressive tool, and also come to know themselves as a person, so that they can then be better at whatever it is in life they want to be,” Roberts says. During the bassoon concerto, Roberts will use her lyricism to introduce Hummel’s principal theme before drawing on her years of technical expertise during the rapid climb and tumble of complicated arpeggios. “I think my strengths as a player are lyrical,” Roberts says. “When I get to play the slow movement, that’s where I feel like I really sing.” Audiences will hear more of Roberts throughout the 2022-23 season, which will be split between UVA’s Old Cabell Hall and

Charlottesville High School’s Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center. Both present challenges for the orchestra. Rous says crowd density can drastically change the acoustics of Old Cabell Hall, while the performing arts center presents more air to fill with sound. But neither obstacle is as great as what the orchestra has faced for the past few years. “For so many of our students in the orchestra, for the first years and second years and even some of the third years, this will be their first time playing live with the full ensemble,” Roberts says. COVID-19 protocols kept wind and brass players off the stage from the beginning of the pandemic to March 2021, making this the first time in three years the entire Charlottesville Symphony will begin the season. “I told the orchestra in the first rehearsal,” Rous says, “that my guiding thought for the entire season was that it’s so exciting to be back together that I just wanted to have every time that we rehearse be a fun time, and to come from a place of joy for the whole season.” In February, Charlottesville will hear one of Rous’ personal favorites, Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s “Metacosmos,” which the conductor describes as an “impressionistic landscape of Iceland.” In April, the orchestra will feature a flute concerto by Christopher Rouse, a long-awaited piece which principal flutist Kelly Sulick was originally slated to play in April 2020 with the now-late Rouse in the audience. And throughout the entirety of the season, audiences will be treated to old favorites from Beethoven to Brahms to Antonín Dvořák’s instantly-recognizable New World Symphony. “I don’t usually program this much from the top 10 lists,” Rous says. “This season, I thought that I would lean in that direction a little more. And I think the result is going to be a lot of fun music that people already love, and will love to hear.”

ack in 2013, Alfred Goossens—a certified Virginia Master Naturalist—started to think about poisonous plants. How often, he wondered, were outdoor enthusiasts like him encountering species that might actually be harmful? “There are poisonous plants in our day-today life,” he says, “whether in the backyard or when you’re hiking, that many people don’t know about.” He and some other Master Naturalists ended up talking with Dr. Chris Holstege, who’s not only a toxicologist in the UVA Health System, but also director of the Blue Ridge Poison Center and the Department of Student Health and Wellness. “I went to him and said, ‘How much do you see in the ER?’” Goossens explains. “The incidences were very high.” It was the genesis of a multidisciplinary project meant to educate the public about plants—and, later, animals—that can cause trouble for the human body. Its called the Socrates Project, after the ancient Greek philosopher said to have been executed using the poisonous hemlock plant. The project brought together artists, naturalists and toxicologists to produce a free booklet published in 2020, featuring lovely artwork depicting 25 plants with ugly effects, plus information about how to identify them in the field. Now there’s a follow-up called the Cleopatra Project (remember the legend of her suicide by snake bite?) that focuses on animals. The booklet will be published later this year, and as a preview, the lobby of the Student Health and Wellness Center is currently displaying many of the artworks and information for both plants and animals. Members of the Firnew Farm Artists’ Circle in Madison County have supplied the art. “We’re trying to get students much more engaged in the outdoors,” says Dr. Holstege, explaining why the exhibition is located where students come for health care. “[Doctors are issuing] ‘nature prescriptions’ for everybody, not just students.” Anyone who lacks experience with the nastier local species would do well to bone up a little as they venture into the otherwise very healing great outdoors. Holstege says that while some toxic species are very well known—think poison ivy—others might come as a surprise, like the beautiful but inedible berries of the pokeberry plant (Phytolacca americana). “Young kids eat them,” he says, “and they cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. They might have to go in for fluids because they get dehydrated.” Adults foraging for wild leeks, meanwhile, might mistakenly harvest

The Cleopatra Project expands the collaboration between UVA Health System, the Blue Ridge Poison Center, and Virginia Master Naturalists with an educational booklet about poisonous animals, illustrated by members of Firnew Farm Artists’ Circle.

American false hellebore (Veratrum viridae), which is potentially fatal. On the animal side, snakes get a lot of attention, but spiders and caterpillars can also mess up your day. “We certainly get a number of black widow envenomations each year,” says Holstege. (By the way, if you’re wondering about the difference between venomous and poisonous, Holstege explains that venom is injected, as in a bite or sting, while poison

enters through the skin or through eating.) The Cleopatra Project includes eight different troublesome caterpillars, five toads, two shrews with poisonous saliva, and even a jellyfish. “The Eastern newt—it’s quite pretty, brilliant orange during its terrestrial stage—does have a poison in it,” Holstege says. “It could be a risk for pets.” While it’s certainly important to be aware of these dangers, the project organizers stress that all the plants and animals have a place in our world. They are part of Virginia’s ecology, and some of the very chemicals that are hazardous to humans may also find uses in medicine. The beauty of the paintings, collages, and fabric pieces in the exhibition attests to the respect of the artists for these formidable life forms. Goossens says that as a public service project, the booklets are not for sale but are distributed to state parks, school nurses, and Master Naturalist chapters. You can also view both projects online. Even the most familiar species can cause unexpected trouble. “A lot of people don’t know that if you have an open burn or a field fire, and poison ivy burns,” says Holstege, “that toxin gets aerosolized and gets on your skin.” So be careful with those fall brush fires, and watch your step in the woods.

Anyone who lacks experience with the nastier local species would do well to bone up a little as they venture into the otherwise very healing great outdoors.

Bowie’s music is evergreen, and his interviews never get dull. It’s striking how vastly more gregarious, articulate, funny, and engaging he is in these interviews than most rock stars, and his unrelenting love of life and creativity give the film enormous energy. “Don’t waste a minute,” Bowie tells an interviewer. Judging by Moonage Daydream, he never did.

avid Bowie was so ahead of his time that, even six years after his death, his music seems advanced. Brett Morgen’s concert film/documentary Moonage Daydream is a cause for celebration for the Thin White Duke’s millions of fans with its combination of musical footage, interviews with Bowie, other archival clips, and animation. Morgen has said that Moonage Daydream was initially intended as an “immersive experience” akin to The Beatles’ collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, Love. Trailers are touting it as a “cinematic experience,” which is a fairly accurate description: it’s deliberately not a traditional biographical documentary in the sense that people’s names and films’ titles aren’t identified with captions, nor are new interviews inserted. None of this deeply detracts from its overall structure. Bowie’s life and work need no introduction, yet his story remains fresh and vital. The audience follows David Jones of Brixton as he creates the chameleon-like character that we think of as “David Bowie.” One

interviewer describes Bowie as an artist whose canvas is himself, which Bowie wholeheartedly agrees with. He constantly pushed boundaries, like with his flamboyant androgyny at a time when simply dyeing his hair bright red was considered shocking. Moonage Daydream drifts through many of his career’s key points, like his early triumph as Ziggy Stardust and his collaborations with Brian Eno, into his ’80s superstardom with chart-topping hits like “Let’s Dance,” and beyond. Much of the material was drawn from Bowie’s own archive, which he accumulated during his lifetime, and we hear about his half-brother who had schizophrenia, his movie career, his happy marriage to Iman, and his final years. Moonage Daydream continually reminds us what a polymath Bowie was. The minute he excelled in some art form, he would challenge himself with something new. From experimental rock, to film work, to starring as The Elephant Man on Broadway, to painting, he wholly immersed himself in each medium he worked in. His intense enthusiasm, creativity, and curiosity are infectious. If you’re into Bowie and his music, this movie is an easy sell and you won’t be disap-

2021 Merlot Aged for 20 months in French & American Oak, notes of black and red fruits like black cherry are pronounced on the nose along with notes of baker’s chocolate, spice, and vanilla. Dry, medium-bodied and smooth with mellow tannins and moderate acidity, this is our most fruit-forward red wine. It’s fleshier than your standard Merlot, soft in texture with faint oak. Enjoy a glass of Merlot at Eastwood with the Chef’s Charcuterie Board - packed with meats and cheeses, fig jam, olives, and apricots or enjoy a bottle at home. It pairs great with grilled hamburgers, pork chops and roasted potatoes, mushroom or bolognese pastas, and much more. The Eastwood Merlot was awarded a gold medal in the Mid-Atlantic Southeastern Wine Competition and the Virginia Governor’s Cup. Visit the winery on Wednesdays for 10% off all bottles, on Thursdays for live music and the sunset, on Fridays for oysters and live music, or stop by over the weekend for live music and special events.

2019 Merlot Small vat fermented and barrel aged 16 months, this wine showcases notes of black cherry, cola, and savory herbs. This wine follows nice in the footsteps of its predecessor, our 2017 Merlot, which won Gold in the Governor’s Cup. The 2019 is still a bit youthful, and while it tastes great right now, it’s only going to get better over the next several years. The problem? By then it will be long gone! That’s the challenge and the beauty of authentic, estate grown wines. Only 200 cases were produced. Available now for you to experience on our tasting menu!

Sept 17th – (4-6pm) We are pleased to have the Terri Allard Trio! American/Country Folk style music from a group of local artists. Award-winning singersongwriter Terri Allard combines sultry sweetness and grit with an intimately personal writing style, lending a strong, authentic voice to the Americana music scene. On each of Allard’s five notable recordings, her original material chronicles the highs and lows of living day-to-day. Come and be enchanted by the Sweetheart of Barboursville!

MONTIFALCO VINEYARDS 2019 Montifalco Vineyard Estate Meritage Blanc This is the first Estate Meritage Blanc crafted in Virginia and the Meritage Alliance was thrilled. Our winemaker Justin Falco made this beautiful wine in a style worthy of drinking now, but it can also lay down in your cellar or wine fridge for a few more years. This classic Bordeaux blend of our Estate grown Semillon & Sauvignon Blanc was aged for 12 months in equal parts new and old Bordeaux oak barrels. Uniquely unfiltered, it has medium plus body, intense flavors of ripe pineapple, pear, gooseberry, apples with sweater weather baking spices while still showing off its minerality. A wine that is exceptional on the Fall dining table. We love it with slow cooker recipes like Chicken Pumpkin Curry and Apple Butternut Squash soup. Email us for recipes!

By Rob Brezsny

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

Libra

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Tips for making the most of the next three weeks: 1. Be proud as you teeter charismatically on the fence. Relish the power that comes from being in between. 2. Act as vividly congenial and staunchly beautiful as you dare. 3. Experiment with making artful arrangements of pretty much everything you are part of. 4. Flatter others sincerely. Use praise as one of your secret powers. 5. Cultivate an open-minded skepticism that blends discernment and curiosity. 6. Plot and scheme in behalf of harmony, but never kiss ass.

Scorpio

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Poet Mary Oliver wrote, “There is within each of us a self that is neither a child, nor a servant of the hours. It is a third self, occasional in some of us, tyrant in others. This self is out of love with the ordinary; it is out of love with time. It has a hunger for eternity.” During the coming weeks, Scorpio, I will be cheering for the ascendancy of that self in you. More than usual, you need to commune with fantastic truths and transcendent joys. To be in maximum alignment with the good fortune that life has prepared for you, you must give your loving attention to the highest and noblest visions of your personal destiny that you can imagine.

Sagittarius

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tips to get the most out of the next three weeks: 1. Use your imagination to make everything seem fascinating and wonderful. 2. When you give advice to others, be sure to listen to it yourself. 3. Move away from having a rigid conception of yourself and move toward having a fluid fantasy about yourself. 4. Be the first to laugh at and correct your own mistakes. (It’ll give you the credibility to make even better mistakes in the future.) 5. Inspire other people to love being themselves and not want to be like you.

THE VOICE OF THE CAVALIERS | A REVAMPED VIOLA | SALLY HUDSON FOR C'VILLE

11 WAYS TO AMP UP YOUR AUTUMN

The Virginia Film Festival draws thousands to town for panel discussions, movie premieres, celebrity 1 ABODE sightings, parties, and more.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Love your mistakes and foibles,” Virgo astrologer William Sebrans advises his fellow Virgos. “They aren’t going away. And it’s your calling in life—some would say a superpower— to home in on them and finesse them. Why? Because you may be able to fix them or at least improve them with panache—for your benefit and the welfare of those you love.” While this counsel is always relevant for you, dear Virgo, it will be especially so in the coming weeks. oracular opinion, you need to build your personal power right now. An important way to do that is by being discriminating about what you take in and put out. For best results, speak your truths as often and as clearly as possible. And do all you can to avoid exposing yourself to trivial and delusional “truths” that are really just opinions or misinformation.

Aquarius

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are an extra authentic Aquarius if people say that you get yourself into the weirdest, most interesting trouble they’ve ever seen. You are an ultra-genuine Aquarius if people follow the twists and pivots of your life as they would a soap opera. And I suspect you will fulfill these potentials to the max in the coming weeks. The upcoming chapter of your life story might be as entertaining as any you have had in years. Luckily, imminent events are also likely to bring you soulful lessons that make you wiser and wilder. I’m excited to see what happens!

Pisces

(Feb. 19-March 20): In a poem to a lover, Pablo Neruda wrote, “At night I dream that you and I are two plants that grew together, roots entwined.” I suspect you Pisceans could have similar deepening and interweaving experiences sometime soon—not only with a lover but with any treasured person or animal you long to be even closer to than you already are. Now is a time to seek more robust and resilient intimacy.

Aries

(March 21-April 19): Even when your courage has a touch of foolhardiness, even when your quest for adventure makes you a bit reckless, you can be resourceful enough to

avoid dicey consequences. Maybe more than any other sign of the zodiac, you periodically outfox karma. But in the coming weeks, I will nevertheless counsel you not to barge into situations where rash boldness might lead to wrong moves. Please do not flirt with escapades that could turn into chancy gambles. At least for the foreseeable future, I hope you will be prudent and cagey in your quest for interesting and educational fun.

Taurus

(April 20-May 20): In 1946, medical professionals in the U.K. established the Common Cold Unit. Its goal was to discover practical treatments for the familiar viral infection known as the cold. Over the next 43 years, until it was shut down, the agency produced just one useful innovation: zinc gluconate lozenges. This treatment reduces the severity and length of a cold if taken within 24 hours of onset. So the results of all that research were modest, but they were also much better than nothing. During the coming weeks, you may experience comparable phenomena, Taurus: less spectacular outcomes than you might wish, but still very worthwhile.

Gemini

(May 21-June 20): Here’s a scenario that could be both an invigorating metaphor and a literal event. Put on rollerblades. Get out onto a long flat surface. Build up a comfortable speed. Fill your lungs with the elixir of life. Praise the sun and the wind. Sing your favorite songs. Swing your arms all the way forward and all the way back. Forward: power. Backward: power. Glide and coast and flow with sheer joy. Cruise along with confidence in the instinctive skill of your beautiful body. Evaporate thoughts. Free yourself of every concern and every idea. Keep rambling until you feel spacious and vast.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): I’m getting a psychic vision of you cuddled up in your warm bed, surrounded by stuffed animals and wrapped in soft, thick blankets with images of bunnies and dolphins on them. Your headphones are on, and the songs pouring into your cozy awareness are silky smooth tonics that rouse sweet memories of all the times you felt most wanted and most at home in the world. I think I see a cup of hot chocolate on your bedstand, too, and your favorite dessert. Got all that, fellow Cancerian? In the coming days and nights, I suggest you enjoy an abundance of experiences akin to what I’ve described here.

Leo

(July 23-Aug. 22): For 15 years, Leo cartoonist Gary Larson created The Far Side, a hilarious comic strip featuring intelligent talking animals. It was syndicated in more than 1,900 newspapers. But like all of us, he has had failures, too. In one of his books, Larson describes the most disappointing event in his life. He was eating a meal in the same dining area as a famous cartoonist he admired, Charles Addams, creator of The Addams Family. Larson felt a strong urge to go over and introduce himself to Addams. But he was too shy and tonguetied to do so. Don’t be like Larson in the coming weeks, dear Leo. Reach out and connect with receptive people you’d love to communicate with. Make the first move in contacting someone who could be important to you in the future. Be bold in seeking new links and affiliations. Always be respectful, of course.

itting just outside the Charlottesville city limits with easy access to I-64, Pantops is the place to be if you want all the city has to offer, including superb shopping and services, and a quick getaway. Close to some of the region’s biggest employers—UVA, Martha Jefferson Hospital, City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County—Pantops is a commuter’s dream. It’s no wonder that buyers snap up homes in Pantops neighborhoods before the ink is dry on a new listing. The area has seen significant investment in the past couple of years as one of Albemarle County’s top growth areas. Two brand new subdivisions joined nearly a dozen other Pantops neighborhoods. The area has its share of traffic and congestion problems. But when these are resolved, Pantops will become even more in demand than it is now. Fortunately, there is evidence things are moving in the right direction.

Richmond Road became the natural route commercial and retail enterprises used to enter and leave Charlottesville. And it still is. This four to seven-lane thoroughfare has a little of everything. Residents and area shoppers drive into Pantops for the two major grocery stores, numerous retail shops, the Martha Jefferson Hospital and associated health providers, and an extensive network of services. Restaurants and coffee shops abound along Richmond Road. Grit Coffee, Marco’s Pizza, Mi Casita Salvadoran Restaurant, and The Lazy Parrot BBQ join the typical array of Starbucks, Applebee’s, and Chik-fil-A. Tip Top, the ever-popular 50s-style diner, still won’t spill the beans on what days their famous meatloaf is

on the menu. Car shoppers in the Charlottesville area know to check out the deals on “Dealership Row” in Pantops. They can test drive everything from the latest Porsche or Audi to the haggle-free bargains on a used car at CarMax. Overnight visitors can choose from the Hilton Garden Inn, Comfort Inn, or the newly opened Holiday Inn Express. More are in the works including The Overlook Hotel (adjacent to Rivanna Ridge shopping center) and a proposed five-story hotel behind the Guadalajara Restaurant. A once huge presence in Pantops, State Farm sent its 800-person workforce home at the beginning of Covid-19, never to return.

E is for Everything As the original main path from Richmond to the Shenandoah Valley, Three Notch’d Road slowly evolved into the current Route 250, still called Richmond Road. In 1933 state highway officials announced a plan to build the Free Bridge across the Rivanna River. Nearly a century later, it’s still the only bridge, and often cursed by the more than 50,000 drivers who traverse it daily.

Close-in, Convenient and In Demand BY CARLA HUCKABEE


F is for Failing Pantops’ reputation as one giant traffic jam is not entirely undeserved. The nearly two-mile stretch of Route 250 from the I-64 interchange to Free Bridge can be solid traffic depending on the time of day. Last year the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission graded Free Bridge performance as F, reporting, “… there are currently 53,000 vehicles per day on Free Bridge which has resulted in an overall level of service of F. Modeling has shown that by 2040, approximately 70,000 vehicles a day will be using the bridge, making the already failing level of service 25 percent worse.”

gestion, VDOT is reengineering the I-64 Route 250 intersection into a diverging diamond design. Cars will be able to turn left onto and off I-64 ramps without stopping or crossing opposing lanes of traffic. This will give the intersection twice the capacity of the current configuration. Meanwhile, efforts to ease the load on Free Bridge include promoting alternative routes and getting people out of their cars. It’s an uphill battle, but not impossible. McArtor says “Pantops can work surprisingly well for anyone who needs to get to 29 North. Skip Free Bridge and head out Stony Point Road to get to Target, the airport, UVA Research Park, and all the businesses north of town. “And depending on where you live in Pantops, it will eventually be an easy bike ride or walk into Charlottesville over the Rivanna River.” The county has applied for funds to build a pedestrian bridge to cross the Rivanna to East Market Street near the historic Woolen Mills development. Chris Gensic, Charlottesville’s Parks and Trails Planner, says, “In Pantops, you’re only a couple of miles from the Downtown Mall and there’s no safe way to bike into Charlottesville. This bridge

The vacated campus is now home to Bonumose after a $27 million investment converted it into a production facility for tagatose, a low-glycemic, affordable, rare sugar that doesn’t promote tooth decay. UVA alum and Bonumose Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Ed Rogers says, “We will start tagatose production at the Charlottesville area facility in 2022, but I do not want to get any more specific than that.” Don’t expect the backlog of quitting time traffic to return to State Farm Boulevard, as Bonumose will only have 65 employees at the new production facility.

will open up safe routes for people that today don’t have much choice but to drive a car.” McArtor warns, “Don’t line up to be the first to bike across the pedestrian bridge just yet. But this is worth paying attention to if you’re considering buying in Pantops.” After a pedestrian death each of the past two years on Route 250, new pedestrian crossings at Rolkin Road and Stony Point Road are in the works to give walkers two more options to cross the busy highway.

The other end of 250 faces similar problems and backups with cars turning left across traffic to access I-64. One county employee describes driving in Pantops as bad, adding, “And I hope you don’t plan to walk or bike anywhere.” Paul McArtor, REALTOR® with Avenue Realty, agrees. “The biggest draw to Pantops is being so close to the city. And the biggest drawback to Pantops is traffic.” But valiant efforts are underway to improve. In response to the traffic con-

G is for Greenway If your first thought of Pantops is pavement and strip malls, you haven’t ventured very far from Route 250. Even though Pantops is more urban than suburban, its natural assets are not fully appreciated and remain undiscovered by even long-term residents. The Rivanna River is the anchor for much of the green space in Pantops, even offering a beach to dig your toes in the sand and imagine you’re somewhere more exotic. Who knew? Along the northern edge of Pantops, the 113-acre Darden Towe Park is a joint City-County venture across the river from Charlottesville’s Pen Park. Darden Towe’s boat launch, tennis courts, ball fields, batting cages, grills, and picnic shelters offer something for everyone. History buffs, model rocketeers, and dog lovers are at home at the park’s Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center, open fields, and dog park. Heading south along the Rivanna River, the first mile of the 2.7-mile Old Mills Trail is paved, making it a great destination for anyone with a stroller, wheelchair, bike, or skates. Another 10acre county park is preserved as a natural area adjacent to Riverside Village and is a haven for bird watchers. Old Mills Trail spans the length of Pantops along the river, past the Martha Jefferson Hospital complex and beyond I-64, connecting with a trail to Milton Landing near Shadwell. This offers a convenient six-mile paddle/hike option from Darden Towe to Milton Landing. As Albemarle County continues to accomplish the goals outlined in the Pantops Master Plan, the area will only improve.

H is for Home There are as many reasons to be close to Charlottesville as there are people wanting to call Pantops home. Residential options range from apartments and condos to 7,000-square-foot luxury homes on multi-acre wooded sites. Ashcroft, just west of the I-64 interchange, was one of the first residential

neighborhoods in Pantops with a focus on natural beauty and luxury. Homes date from 1981 to 2022, range from 2,500 to 7,000 square feet, and are priced from $400,000 to nearly $2 million. Buyers can count on large windows to highlight the woods that are the hallmark of this community. The 270 homesites atop the Southwest Mountains are surrounded by acres of mature hardwoods and exquisite views. Lakes, a swimming pool, a clubhouse, and other amenities bring neighbors together to make a true community. Through the 1990’s and 2000’s, more new neighborhoods sprouted north of 250—Wilton Farm, Avemore, Fontana, and Hyland Ridge, and more recently, Cascadia and Riverside Village. Half-acre sites and rolling terrain are commonplace in the earlier neighborhoods with more density in Cascadia and Riverside Village. Cascadia is the largest of the developments, with 330 homes on 60 acres. It includes a mix of single-family, villas, and townhomes with rooftop decks.

Located across from Darden Towe Park, the homes are aligned to take advantage of mountain views. McArtor notes, “Avemore, Fontana, and Cascadia all have swimming pools. But Cascadia is one of the few new developments with a pool. Located at the top of the hill, patrons can enjoy the views while lounging in the pool.” Riverside Village is adjacent to Darden Towe Park and fronts the Rivanna River. This compact village includes 45 homes, some with one-bedroom apartments over the garages, and ground floor apartments in some townhouse units, along with a separate building of 24 condominiums. Prominent walkways, porches on craftsman-style homes and villas bring together a unique diversity of buyers and renters. At the entrance to the village, The Shops at Riverside Village has 34 apartments upstairs and a Grit Coffee, AKT Fitness, and River Birch Restaurant on the ground floor. Unique to Riverside Village is the abil-

ity to walk or bike safely into Charlottesville via the Old Mills Trail, a ramp up to the Free Bridge sidewalk, and then the Rivanna Trail or city streets. Even for drivers, the extremely short distance to travel along 250 into Charlottesville makes it the envy of those living in other Pantops neighborhoods. Pantops is also home to more affordable living options such as condominiums, townhomes, and apartment communities, including a new 250-unit apartment complex adjacent to the hospital. The Pavilions at Pantops is a townhome community north of 250 with a variety of floor plans and designs and large maintenance-free lots. Residents enjoy lawn care and landscaping yearround plus seven playgrounds, basketball, and tennis courts. There are usually several Pavilions townhomes and Carriage Hill condos on the market. Listings in other predominantly single-family home communities are less frequent. REALTOR® Pat Rannigan, with Howard Hanna Roy Wheeler Realty Co. recently listed a townhome in Pavilions at Pantops, and it was one of only three available. Prices ranged from $388,000 to $449,990. At the same time, Cascadia had only one home for sale (a townhome for $619,000). Riverside Village and Hyland Ridge had none while Key West had one. Its proximity to Charlottesville makes Pantops a top draw. The panoramic views, the convenience of close by and abundant restaurant, retail, and other services, a nearby top-notch hospital, the Rivanna River and greenway, and distinctive residential communities make it a hard package to beat. No matter what style of living you seek, you can find it in Pantops. The only question is whether it’s for sale. One thing you can be sure of, the Pantops you see today won’t be the Pantops of tomorrow. With all the positive changes currently in the works and planned for the future, count on Pantops to keep getting better and better. Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
