CCAC August 2022 – Downtown & the Master Plan

Local government matters, and as I’ve said for years, these meetings – as slow as they may seem – shape how our County lives and grows. Whenever the Crozet Downtown is redeveloped, that redevelopment will in part be influenced by a meeting three years ago, or five, or seven. Keep in mind that the lumberyard was sold at auction just over ten years ago.

The Crozet Community Advisory Committee will meet this Wednesday, August 10 at 7 p.m., via Zoom. 

You can join the meeting here: https://albemarle-org.zoom.us/j/94571782297. …

Instructions for joining and meeting materials are also posted on the Albemarle County Calendar.

Our main agenda item this month will be a presentation from the Downtown Crozet Initiative updating us on the status of the Plaza and the downtown redevelopment.

We’ll also leave some time at the end of the meeting to talk about areas where the CCAC may be able to help with some of the Master Plan’s implementation goals.

For example, Goal 5 in the Land Use section of the Crozet Master Plan suggests that the County should “Increase capacity of the CCAC, local schools, or other community groups to initiate, implement, and manage placemaking projects.” (Master Plan, p. 27)

There may also be opportunities for us to assist with some other Master Plan implementation goals, such as the Downtown Neighborhoods Architectural and Cultural Resources Study and Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing Survey. (p. 26)”

  1. In my experience since moving to Crozet in October 2014, local ‘government’ really doesn’t matter. Ok, I get it…kind of a mantra.
    As for the DCI…I won’t believe a thing until I see bulldozers move dirt.
    Someone years ago called Frank Stoner a ‘poser’.
    I didn’t want to believe it. I do now.

  2. In his defense, it’s a hard property with a lot of stakeholders – railroad, VDOT, adjacent property owners, Albemarle County, and more that I can’t think of off the top of my head.

    But yeah … moving dirt would be great.

Something to say?
