Hard to believe that nearly 10 years ago, Old Trail was rezoned (that was the 2nd post on RealCrozetVA!).
A few thoughts:
- It’s a shame that the Daily Progress’ archives are no longer available — note the broken links in my story.
- I’m glad I quoted a reasonable part of their story.
- Reading the BoS Executive Summary from that meeting, I’m hard-pressed to see how anyone ever thought that Old Trail was going to be more of a retirement community, as I’ve heard many people say over the years as a means by which to excuse not planning better.
- Harder to belive that it’s been nearly 10 years since the rezoning!
The story remains the same. This could have been written today:
Most of the frustration, though, has been directed at the county for not funding long-term improvements outlined in Crozet’s master plan, such as parking, better roads and sidewalks.
Blues that runs the gamut from searing emotional solos all the way to swing and funk.
If you haven’t driven through Old Trail recently, you might be surprised.
Update from Dave Brockman at Old Trail:
Thanks for reaching out to me. The activity has certainly created a lot of excitement. What I can share is that the work being conducted to the west is primarily to support our new residential lot sales, which required a significant amount of earthwork. However, we continue to have very meaningful dialog with several interested commercial development partners and felt confident enough to use this opportunity to start making preparation for further expansion along Old Trail Drive. Old Trail’s success of the last few years has given us the ability to be more efficient in our work towards the future.
If you’re curious, these are the homes that are for sale right now in Old Trail.
