On Bamboo Grove

I google for you.

Charlottesville Tomorrow

The team’s plan of six small homes is two over the county’s vision for the property in its Comprehensive Plan, which is updated every few years based on community feedback. However, Fuller is hoping that designating those two homes as affordable and dedicating land for a public trail will offset that concern.

From the Housing Lab’s site

Bamboo Grove is a miniature neighborhood with six compact, affordable and energy efficient houses is designed for an acre of land a few blocks from downtown Crozet. Shared green space between the houses anchors the neighboorhood together while walking trails and sidewalks connect it to nature and the surrounding community. Common landscaped areas, patio, bicycle parking and mail area will be located between the vehicles and the houses to encourage the informal interaction so essential to build a feeling of belonging to a community.
