A roundup of last night’s CCA meeting is coming, but I wanted to briefly note a couple of things:
2)Â About 35 -40 residents turned out – a relatively large number for a summer meeting.
3) The Crozet Library project may have some interesting developments coming down the pike. With a bit more investigation, I will write more.
4) In discussing the perceived poor implementation of the Western Connector and the lack of bike lanes, it was said that – wait for it – “The sidewalks ARE the bike lanes.”
Mark your calendars for this Thursday! This “Growth Summit” seems interesting. The more public involvement, the better.
From the CCA’s listserv:
We are scheduled to have the requested July meeting this week on Thursday at 7:30 at the Firehouse.Â This is a special summer meeting called to address issues related to the rapid development going on around Crozet.Â
There will be a report from the Crozet Community Advisory Council, the Board of Supervisors’ appointed group that is asked to advise the BOS on Crozet concerns.Â It has met three times and is asking for public input.
There will be discussion of a proposal to hold a “Growth Summit” in Crozet in September, where the general public, members of the BOS, the Advisory Committee, and others will address the build-out projections, the development of commercial space in and around Crozet, theÂ re-zoning process, the protection of rural space, and other concerns.Â People from other growth areas in the County would be invited to attend.
The zoning notices pop up all the time; keeping track of them is a difficult task. If only there were a way to search for zoning notices by either Zip Code or a map-proximity search …
Here are a few signs, by no means all-inclusive, that have been seen in Crozet the past couple of days –
If you see any other ones, please post below.
The Crozet population matter comes to a head (again) in the form of a “Crozet Master Plan Population Resolution” this Wednesday, 5 July.
The full text of the proposed resolution. One (sarcastic) question: why all the “Whereas'”?
I’ve never been fond of swimming as a competitive sport – turning into a raisin is typically something I avoid. That and the early-morning practices, the cold water and the general “wet-ness.”
However, I truly enjoy the sounds of a swim meet from my back patio. The cheering, the announcer over the loudspeaker, the “beep” starting the racers, the sounds of community and competition.
If I wasn’t working and catching up on work this evening, I’d walk on over to cheer some of my neighbors’ kids. Crozet still does have that small-town feel. The occasional giggle making it way through the air …
“Event 56, Girls 11-12, 50 metre backstroke, Heat 1!”
Ah, summer in Crozet.
Welcome to the Crozet Gazette, a now-monthly, soon-to-be bi-monthly newspaper distributed locally á la The HooK and C-Ville. The stories are well-written, informative, timely and most importantly, Crozet-centric.
One aspect is exciting – a good Crozet newspaper is on the scene. On the other hand, part of this is saddening. It highlights the further segmentation of the CharlAlbemarle region. Now, one needs to look for the 29 North Gazette, the Scottsville Post, Pantops Times. For all I know, they might already exist. (update June 2018 – they don’t)
Noah: But I’m sick and tired of this. I’ve been working all day everyday like crazy for months now, dawn to dusk. I’m tired of this.
God: How long can you tread water?
Driving home yesterday, we saw two giraffes, two elephants, two ox … and me without my camera.
