Albemarle County are looking for applicants for the Crozet Community Advisory Council. Selfishly, I would love for a representative of the CCAC to write a story on RealCrozetVA after the meetings to keep readers updated on the direction that Crozet may go.
For better or worse, our daily lives are significantly impacted by the conclusions reached and decisions made in mundane, monotonous often boring yet crucially important meetings.
Are you interested in being an active and engaged part in critical issues that will help shape Crozetâ€™s future? If so, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors is strongly encouraging you to apply for one of several open positions on the Crozet Community Advisory Council (CCAC).
The CCAC was created by the Board two years ago as an advisory committee to assist County staff and the Board of Supervisors with civic/community issues related to implementation of the Crozet Master Plan. The membership is broad-based to incorporate a variety of perspectives and ideas and to provide citizens, businesspersons and representatives of active community groups a chance to be engaged and be heard in a constructive and meaningful way.
The 15-member group meets monthly and is active in partnering with the County on a variety of critical projects including the streetscape project, the Crozet Library, the Western Park master plan, and the downtown zoning project. Members serve a two-year term and are eligible for reappointment for a total of two terms.
The CCAC needs the continued energy and commitment of Crozet residents to continue the good work started in the groupâ€™s first two years and to keep momentum going on major infrastructure projects underway like the downtown revitalization and the library. Anyone interested in learning more about the Council or in getting an application can contact the County Community Relations Office at (434)296-5841 or can visit the Albemarle County website.
