Greetings Crozet enthusiasts and trail lovers,
It has been a winter to remember. Perhaps some of you had a chance to try out your dusty cross-country skiis around town. Now that Spring has arrived, we’d like to delve back into the Crozet Trails and Greenways endeavor. Some of you had a chance to meet with Dan Mahon and I at the Crozet Mudhouse in the fall. We discussed future trail routes, existing trail beginnings, and the need for a dedicated group of volunteers to both build and help plan the Crozet trail system.
We hope that those of you who are interested will be able to attend one or both of the following get-togethers:
1. April 3rd (Saturday) – Beaver Creek Reservoir parking area- 8:30am– We will walk the existing trail, discuss what needs to be done to complete the trail (clearing, grading, building benches, signs, drainage systems, etc.),and plan a training session for trail builders. Wear good walking shoes. Email me with any questions about this event.
2. April 8th (Thursday) – Crozet Mudhouse- 6pm — For the Crozet Trail project to work, we will need organizers as well as builders. Brains and brawn. And of course, we encourage folks to be on both “teams” if you are interested. We would like to establish a monthly meeting in order to discuss progress, issues, and strategies. At the April 8th meeting, we will talk about ideas for acquiring a logo, various representatives, a school liasion, and any other planning topics that come up. We heard some good ideas at the meeting in the fall and would like to follow-up with some of those. Email me if you have any questions or suggestions for this event.
I look forward to meeting and reconnecting with those of you who are interested in working to make the Crozet Trails project come to life.
Jessica Mauzy (working with Dan Mahon, Albemarle County Trails and Greenways Planner)
