Since I’ve got mine, it’s ok if others don’t, apparently.
Also, respondents want to live next to parks, open space, restaurants, and retail.
The People make Government’s job harder.
Crozet, Albemarle, the US, the World, need affordable housing. I don’t know that anyone has a viable solution as of yet, but I do know that not seeing affordable housing as a need is a problem.

The Comprehensive Plan update is being called AC44 to reflect the target year of 2044. The first set of results are in for the first round of public input for the second phase.
“The AC44 team reviewed community input from the first round of engagement in Phase 2, from 532 questionnaire responses, six pop-ups in each magisterial district, and approximately 130 participants in 15 community chats,” reads an email sent out this morning.
That response rate is around 0.4 percent of the total population.
A summary of the responses has also been sent out. Question ten sought to gauge concern about housing affordability in the future. Seventy-four respondents were very concerned, 217 were somewhat concerned, and 231 were not concerned at all.
All of the data from the full questionnaire are also available for review on the AC44 website. The vast majority of respondents live in single-family homes (432 out of 526) and own their homes (460 out of 519).
43% of respondents – who are already homeowners – are not concerned about affordable housing.
Edit: The first title for this post was, “I’ve Got Mine;” I’m editing it because it’s a more opinionated title than I typically publish. I’d rather the post be about the comp plan, and not my opinion, though I still wish we’d think of others more when responding to surveys.
