I sense we are at a (new) crossroads for the Crozet community … the town hall will be an opportunity to listen, learn and speak about the forthcoming changes – more new construction, more traffic, school challenges – this will be a great chance for the community.
I think that this is a meeting that is important – one that I think would warrant getting a babysitter to attend.
One thing I have noticed from going to a lot of these meetings is that there are rarely any people under the age of 40 … the future of Crozet depends on the voices of all – and I sincerely think that (no disrespect intended) leaving the conversations and decisions up to those who are more able to attend so many meetings is a disservice to the community.
I can’t promise the meeting will be anything other than boring policy-talk, but if you don’t make the effort (and yes, maybe a little sacrifice) the community will likely suffer.
