The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors is considering a new policy on public use of the McIntire Office Building and grounds. While the proposed policy is an improvement over the previous one, which allowed essentially no ‘expressive’ use whatsoever of the public space, it still unconstitutionally infringes on the First Amendment rights of the public.

Here are two letters submitted to the Board regarding the proposed policy:

From William C. Tucker, representing Indivisible Charlottesville: Comments on Draft Rules

From J. Joshua Wheeler, Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University: Albemarle COB Rules Review

The Board will vote on the proposed policy at their regular meeting Wednesday 10/16 at 6PM at the McIntire Office Building.
