A comment on RealCrozetVA about Old Trail’s pool:

I just drove though Old Trail today and saw the wonderful pool that is not open to my family. I have lived in Crozet all of my life and thought how nice it was going to be to have Old Trail Village open to us. I am very sad to know that was just a lie. Just gate the place off and apply for your own zip code!

A sad note from Twitter:

Crozet used to be safe enough to leave your car unlocked & run into a store…not anymore,credit card/atm/license stolen out of my car @ DQ!

Everything is a political or marketing opportunity for someone – this instance is the $8k tax credit for first time homebuyers.
