Crozet’s population -12k or 24k?

The Crozet population matter comes to a head (again) in the form of a “Crozet Master Plan Population Resolution” this Wednesday, 5 July.

The full text of the proposed resolution. One (sarcastic) question: why all the “Whereas'”?

As usual, Charlottesville Tomorrow has full coverage. Mary Rice, who seems to be among the most knowledgeable and articulate on Crozet’s growth has a lengthy comment.

Interestingly, she refers to an “optimal density,” echoing the message touted by ASAP (whose domain name has expired). You can listen to a recent podcast of Jack Marshall at Cvillepodcast.

From Crozet’s Community Association’s newsletter/call to action:

This is the resolution that sets Crozet’s target population at 24,000, not 12,000.  (As of 2005, Crozet had a population somewhere between 3,500-4,000).  Because those links did not work in the last message, THE FULL TEXT OF THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND THE RESOLUTION ARE BELOW.

In January, the Board voted unanimously to affirm that 12,000 was not the ultimate target population figure for Crozet, but apparently they feel that that resolution was not strong enough, so this resolution is in front of them for a vote this Wednesday. 

This would be a good time to speak up regarding what your thoughts were regarding the size of Crozet if you were involved in any Master Planning meetings or have read about the Crozet Master Plan over the years.

  THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC HEARING.  IF YOU WANT TO ADDRESS THE BOARD ABOUT THIS MATTER, PLEASE COME AT 9 A.M. AND SPEAK IN THE FIRST PART OF THE MEETING WHERE ANYONE CAN SPEAK FOR THREE MINUTES ON ANY MATTER.
