Crozet Clean Up Challenge – 30 March 2019

Why not make it a day, or a morning, or an afternoon. Go for a short walk, and pick up a small bag of trash, or a big one, or several. Send your pictures to me, before and after. Put them on social media with #trashtag and #CrozetTrashTag.

Crozet clean up Challenge – Saturday March 30th at 9:00am Cling lane cul-de-sac, looking for volunteers.

Where else in Crozet can we clean up?

It’s not a thing, yet, but it could be. If you want an orange trash bag, please text me 434-242-7140 and I’ll get you one, or pick one up outside Greenhouse Coffee.

Looks like a great weekend for it!

What’s Going in Across From Crozet Park?

Houses. There will be houses. Built by someone.

Stony Point Design were going to be building, but as of last week, they will not be.

And today, they have announced a new path, one that no longer includes residential construction. Their work as developers and designers has provided them with the opportunities to expand outside Charlottesville, and to oversee larger projects not only in our area, but throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. They have been able to acquire properties in RichmondCharlottesville, and Cape Cod, on which they will be building multi-family, office, and experiential real estate projects. These projects are building on the great things that they started here in Charlottesville. And we couldn’t be happier for them.

We talked in 2017 about this development, and three others.

  • Jarmans Gap – 12 houses – timeline still unknown
  • Across from Crozet Park project – that’s the subject of this story.
  • Sparrow Hill – (on 250 near Rocket Coffee) – well underway; next phase just opened
  • Glenbrook (between Parkside Village and Foothill Crossing) – well underway

Good Job, Albemarle County.

Albemarle’s New Dress Code


via email.

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

On February 28, I communicated with you about the enforcement of our student conduct policy and dress code practices to better meet our responsibility to provide an educational environment in our schools in which all students can fulfill their highest potential.

Our policy states that any clothing that interferes with or disrupts our educational environment is unacceptable. This requirement has always been present in our policy; it is not new.

Effective tomorrow, Tuesday, March 12, the wearing of clothing with imagery associated with organizations that promote white supremacy, racial division, hatred, or violence will not be permitted in our schools.

RealCrozetVA Facebook Roundup – start of March 2019

Facebook is evil (see the end of this post), but a couple thousand people still like the RealCrozetVA page, so I keep it. (Instagram, too)

Facebook is evil and destructive

And yes, I know Instagram is Facebook.
