Crozet Community Advisory Council Meeting – 21 February 2013

From discussions about a community neighborhood watch to Jeff Werner from the Piedmont Environmental Council talking about preserving rural areas in the face of coming growth (did you know the mobile home park on 240 is apparently/may be trying to get shifted into the growth area?) to a discussion about the coming Crozet hotel (almost entirely positive sentiments) to the opening of the paths through the lumberyard to the fact that folks want sexual offender Dumler to stay on the board because he’s a vote in the controlled-growth camp ….

CCAC Meeting – 19 September – Westlake Hills & Crozet Library

Lots of tweets from last night’s Crozet Community Advisory Council. After the break, scroll down and read bottom-to-top.

These are some of my highlights – big discussions regarding traffic and safety regarding Westlake Hills and how the Crozet Library basement space will be used. Charlottesville Tomorrow was there recording so hopefully they’ll have a podcast up. Crozet Gazette was there and I expect Mike will have a comprehensive story up as well.

– All Westlake Hills traffic will go through Westhall, past Crozet Park, on Tabor, onto 240.

– They can build 50 homes before two points of access are required.

– Westlake Hills going to have a pool. Open to Crozetians he said (membership required)

– How should the open space in the new Crozet Library basement be used?

– Is the new Crozet Library basement ADA accessible? (really need clarification on this.)

– More than 60% of building permits in Albemarle County last quarter were in Crozet.

Also, here are a few photos from last night that I published on Google +. Continue reading “CCAC Meeting – 19 September – Westlake Hills & Crozet Library”
