Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population

City: Charlottesville

Country: United States


Impact Narrative

Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population will distribute approximately 70 copies of OVER. 20-25 copies will be hand-delivered to elected officials of Charlottesville, VA (city councilors) and Albemarle County (supervisors) – plus senior planning staff in both city and county offices. Population growth issues seem to be of declining importance to both city and county official, as reflected in their unwillingness to incorporate (or, on occasion, even consider) effective growth management policies in recent decisions about comprehensive plans. This is an opportune time to raise consciousness about population issues. Prior to this distribution a press release will be prepared and provided to local media with examples of the book.

Additional copies will be given to the first individuals/families who send ASAP their 2015 dues. This incentive would be announced in the annual letter we send to current and prospective ASAP members requesting membership dues, and also noted in the press release. We will urge that recipients share the books with others, and use it as an opportunity to initiate discussions about global, national, and local population issues.
