Two stories of note from the Daily Progress –
Interesting is this –
In February, school officials developed four options for moving students from Crozet to Brownsville and gave parents several months to voice their concerns and opinions.
Only 15 people had weighed in on the options by the end of the summer, said Maury Brown, spokeswoman for the school division.
If we don’t tell our elected officials ahead of the time to make the decision what our intentions are, how can we expect them to follow our direction?
Residents are â€œexasperatedâ€ by the slow progress of the projects, said Michael Marshall, chairman of the advisory council. â€œIt just seems like the county cannot stay on schedule.â€
Marshall, whoâ€™s also the editor of the Crozet Gazette, argues that â€œif the county drags its feetâ€ on plans for a concentrated area of development in downtown Crozet, sprawl will occur in the meantime.
As for the plans to develop the downtown, â€œNobody in Crozet disagrees with what the projects are,â€ Marshall said. â€œThe citizens of Crozet were happy with the master plan. â€¦ Letâ€™s get it done.â€
