Petition to save Downtown Crozet

76 People signed. If Crozetians want to “save” Downtown Crozet, they will need to aim higher – think over one thousand people, and even then there is little assurance that the BoS will listen. More interesting to me is how these residents distributed this petition. If they distributed it “offline,” they hurt themselves. If they did it online, it seems it didn’t get much support.

How better could one market such a (or any other) petition?

Last month’s Crozet Gazette (PDF) has a nice editorial about Downtown Zoning.

Over the mountain

We went over Afton Mountain to Waynesboro last night to stock up for the upcoming storm. Fourteen minutes from my house to the grocery store.

Explain to me, please, why gas at Martin’s grocery store is $2.49 (and then I got a .10 discount for a total of $2.39/gallon!) and gas here in Crozet is anywhere from $2.77 to $2.89/gallon.

Almost as good is that The HooK seems to appear there on Wednesday evenings – so I get a jump on most everybody else!

Have a spare soccer field?

The girls’ team I coach is in need of a field – the offerings in Western Albemarle seem to have become more sparse and the competition more intense.

Anybody know of a spare soccer field – or even an open, level field that we could use?
