Parking Changes for Crozet Farmers Market (and everything else at the Methodist Church)

Via email:

Recently, you may have noticed that it is no longer possible to access Crozet United Methodist Church from Carter Street. This is because the current owner of the property adjacent to ours has unfortunately decided to close that entrance, one they own but have previously allowed us to use for at least the last five decades.

Therefore, it will be necessary for everyone to enter our property for worship, church events, the Farmers’ Market, neighborhood association meetings, our food pantry, county meetings, Scout meetings, etc. via our Crozet Avenue or Jarmans Gap entrances.

Also, please do not park for events held at the church on the Carter Street side of this barrier, as we have learned that this too is prohibited by the landowner next door. Please rest assured that we are working diligently to gain access off our property to Carter Street, and we hope to have this accomplished soon.

  1. Honestly, I live in Crozet and attend that church…
    I don’t think it’s going to be too difficult to drive the extra 25 ft. and access the church from the other [two] entrances, is that just me?

  2. I attend this church as well. The entrance beside the old sanctuary is only one lane wide, so having all that traffic from both the side and back parking lots go through that one entrance will be difficult. It also will prevent parents from dropping their children at the entrance beside the old sanctuary. Hopefully we can work something out soon. I’m just sorry the owner of the property couldn’t work with us toward an reasonable, agreeable solution for all.

  3. It might be best for the church to approach a five decades gift of access with a measure of gratitude rather than bitterness. Just a thought.

Something to say?
