As noted on the Crozet Calendar, there is going to be a community meeting about the rezoning hearing for the next phase of Foothill Crossing on 21 January at Crozet Library at 7pm. Based on the comments I’ve received, I suspect it should be well attended.
It looks like the big change is that the developer is seeking to add attached homes to the mix, a change from having only single family homes. More information here.
Disclosure: I’m a Realtor. I have a professional opinion about this. If you’re interested, ask me.
