If you’re not involved and informed, your opinion is less likely to matter.
Crozet residents are invited to drop by an Open House scheduled for Monday, August 10, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Crozet United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall to learn about the focus areas proposed for the Crozet Master Plan 5-Year Update. Albemarle County’s Comprehensive Plan requires that Master Plans such as Crozet’s, adopted in 2004, be reviewed and updated every five years.
The Crozet Master Plan update now underway is not intended to change the overall goals set by the community in 2004, but to look at specific focus areas that may need modification. The review process will also consider requests from individuals for specific changes to the land use map and plan.
Features of the plan that may need modification have been identified by the Crozet Community Advisory Council (CCAC), the public, County staff, the Planning Commission, and the Board of Supervisors. A questionnaire completed by residents of the Crozet Growth Area and their neighbors in western Albemarle during June 2009 established many of the public’s central areas of concern regarding the plan. Those focus areas will be on display at the Open House for the public’s information.
County staff and members of the Crozet Community Advisory Council will be on hand to provide information and answer questions. The focus areas will be presented to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors for their review and approval this fall. Following Board approval, the community will be involved in developing recommendations for the actual revision of the plan throughout this winter and spring.
