Special Meeting (Monday, November 30, 7:00 PM)
– Crozet Future Land Use Plan Community Engagement Summary (hint: the County have done a lot to engage the community.
Some Recent Background
- We need creative density, commensurate with infrastructure improvements
- There are a lot of people who say they want affordable housing, but want it somewhere else
- Seems like a lot of Crozetians don’t like the current growth patterns, and want to shut down development. At least the ones speaking out.
- Some of the stuff that is being built around Crozet is certainly contributing to the changes in Crozet
- We need affordable housing here. Not “over there.”
- I agree with the commenters that this feels somewhat rushed, but we still need to do something soon
- We need a developer to come and propose/put up something like thisthat is functional and creative.
- Ceasing development is not a good or viable solution (I’m working on a follow up post on this, and would welcome citations in favor or against this argument)
- Zoom meetings are fantastic in that they open the meetings in a way that make them much easier to access, jump in and out, and learn.
- No driving or parking
- Meetings are recorded and put on YouTube
- Transcripts of the meetings!
