And the planning continues.
Lots of comments at the public info site.
All I’ll say is this:
|Review Crozet Master Plan
Draft Transportation Recommendations
Since September 2019, Albemarle County has been exploring alongside the Crozet community how to best reflect the community’s vision for future development in the latest update to the Crozet Master Plan. This month, we’ve focused on sharing the draft transportation recommendations that have been developed based on feedback gathered over the past 15 months.
The draft guiding principle for the Transportation chapter is to “create a multimodal transportation network that is safe and accessible for all community members, regardless of age, race, income and ability.”
We invite you to share your feedback with our project team. Community feedback will be shared with the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors as part of the review process. The Board of Supervisors will provide final direction and approval on the Crozet Master Plan.

The questionnaire will be open from February 2nd – February 19th, 2021.
You may also submit your comments directly to Rachel Falkenstein, Planning Manager [email protected].

|What Is a Master Plan?
A Master Plan is a collaboratively developed document that describes a community’s vision for future development, using text, maps, and diagrams. In Albemarle County, Master Plans are used to guide future public and private development and to coordinate and prepare more detailed plans.
Master Plan Update Process
The public participation process for the Crozet Master Plan includes four phases:Phase 1 focuses on updating the community’s vision and guiding principles that lay the foundation for the Master Plan document. Phase 2 involves Focus Area Input and Design Strategies. During this phase, staff works with the community to identify specific recommendations and associated updates to maps on the topics of Character/Land Use, Connectivity/ Transportation, Conservation/ Parks & Green Systems, and Implementation.Phase 3 (current phase) consists of a period of plan drafting, refinement, and endorsements. Phase 4 will take the Final Master Plan Draft through public comment, public hearings, and approval processes.

Ok. A little bit more
We need to not just build infrastructure, but adequate, relevant, and sufficient infrastructure, along with more dense, smaller houses that allow people to live close to their jobs (think the coming Bamboo Grove), or in new Covid-World, work from home. We need a paradigm shift away from the inertial forces of and towards sameness and homogeneity.
