Petition Update

The Three Notched Trail Planning Group sincerely thanks you for your interest in the trail!  We were blown away by the petition responses, requesting that Albemarle County administrators support the trail.  As of June 9th, there were 4,273 total signatures, broken down thus:

  • 2,603 Albemarle County residents representing ALL Board of Supervisors’ districts
  • 1,227 City of Charlottesville residents
  • 3,961 from residents in the TJPDC district

Hundreds of additional, non-local residents who profess to drive here to use the trail

It’s been incredibly motivating to hear the excitement incited by this proposed trail.  One petition signer’s comment stated, “This is literally the best idea anyone has ever had except for when I had the idea to marry my wife”.  More public comments can be read here.

The TNT Planning Group has not heard a formal response from Albemarle County staff or the Board of Supervisors to our petition.  We will share that once received.   

Sign the petition for a feasibility study
