C’ville Denies Rally Permit Requests

The city of Charlottesville has denied requests for permits for several events next August.

No less than five groups applied to hold events on the one year anniversary of the Unite the Right Rally.

According to the city, the events would pose a danger to public safety and cannot be accommodated in the locations requested.

There is also a concern about allocating funds and police resources.

The city is requiring all special event applications to include the signature of a person taking responsibility for the group’s adherence to new special event limitations.
