Please find attached the agenda for this month’s Crozet Community Advisory Committee (“CCAC”) meeting to be held next Wed, March 21 at The Field School from 7-9pm. NOTE CHANGE IN LOCATION.

As discussed last time, much of the meeting will center around a discussion of the future Crozet Master Plan (“CMP”) update. Specifically, please review the existing Crozet Master Plan and bring your ideas of changes, new or existing priorities, or other updates that should be considered in the future Master Plan update. Given that the CMP update may well be a year or likely more in the future, the CCAC wanted to compile an initial list of needs/priorities to complement the findings of the recent community survey (attached), in order to: (1) have an initial compilation of such priorities/changes to feed into the CMP update, whenever that happens, and (2) to communicate such to the County staff, PC and BoS for consideration in the interim when making decisions on rezonings, SUP’s, resource allocations, and ongoing efforts.

The Crozet Master Plan can be found here or hardcopies may be available by contacting Emily Kilroy.

Attached are some supplementary materials in preparation for this Wed’s CCAC meeting.  These items are intended to help guide the discussion about key changes, new or existing priorities, principles, or other updates that should be addressed by the future update of the Crozet Master Plan:

  1. An outline of the Crozet Master Plan – I am thinking we simply use this outline to organize and guide our discussion;
  2. Summary of key issues CCAC addressed in 2016 and 2017 – This may in part remind us of at least our more recent important concerns;
  3. Crozet Community Survey – Findings Related to the Master Plan (previously discussed and distributed).

I think that this discussion can be a quite daunting task to accomplish in one meeting. I would thus suggest that at this meeting we simply try and brainstorm or list key changes/priorities/updates in each area of the plan, and prioritize them as “major” or “minor/detailed” issues.  In a subsequent follow-up meeting we might then further prioritize the list, decide exactly what and how we want to transmit this information to the County staff, Planning Commission, and Board of Supervisors, and wordsmith any such statement.  I also think it is important to realize this is just an interim first step in any future Master Plan update, in order to:  (1) create an initial compilation of such priorities/changes to feed into the future CMP update, and (2) to communicate such to the County staff, PC and BoS for consideration in the interim when making decisions and for ongoing efforts.  The future full Master Plan update will require a much more detailed set of conversations with supporting work product, performed over a period of time to properly capture the detail required in such a plan.

If anyone has suggestions they wish to offer prior to the meeting I will endeavor to compile them quickly and bring to the meeting to “seed” the discussion.  Additionally, if anyone is particularly passionate about a particular topic/chapter and wants to lead the discussion about that topic, please feel free to do so.  Finally, if there are other ideas about how to run this…I’m all ears.

I look forward to a productive discussion Wed eve.  Reminder – we’re at the Field School.
