Crozet Community Survey – General Public

Crozet Community Survey
June 2017
Survey is closing August 20!

 

We want to gather input from as many people in Crozet as possible, so we appreciate you sharing your opinion on topics related to Crozet.  We urge you and others in your household to fill out and complete this questionnaire as soon as possible.    If you received a letter inviting you to take this survey, please click here to go to the scientific sample survey webpage.  The two survey’s questions are identical.

It should take about 15 minutes to complete the questions in the survey. There are no right or wrong answers; what’s important is your opinion.  All of your responses will be anonymous and kept confidential, only group results will be published.

When you’re ready, click here to go to the public survey to begin the survey.   Thank you in advance for your time and thoughtful input.    [We delayed the availability of the public survey to give time for the letters to arrive in case you should be taking the scientific sample Crozet Community Survey.]

This survey was sponsored and developed by local citizens of the Crozet Community Association (CCA), the Downtown Crozet Initiative (DCI), and the Crozet Board of Trade (CBT), and Albemarle County staff. It is the first step of the upcoming Crozet Master Plan update/revision. It is one of several opportunities for your active participation in the decisions affecting our community in the next five and beyond.

The Crozet Master Plan (CMP) is supposed to be revised every five years. That revision time should have been in 2015, however the County postponed the revision until 2018.   In order to complete the revision with as little delay as possible, we are starting with a community survey now, as was done in 2009 before the 2010 Crozet Master Plan revision.

OPENING OF PUBLIC SURVEY LINK WAS POSTPONED.

Our invitation letters to selected households to take the Crozet Community Survey started to arrive this weekend.  We mailed to a random sample of  2,000  of the 2,600 households inside the Crozet growth area, and 1,000 households adjacent to the growth area  to take the Crozet Community survey, so not everyone will get an invitation letter.  Responses to the survey from this scientific sample of households are now streaming in online.

Unfortunately, the mailing of the invitation letters was unexpectedly delayed, so we must postpone the opening of the “public” survey to give all of you who have received a letter a chance to open and take the survey.  We’ll open the link to the “public” survey on Saturday, June 17 at Noon; that link will be available to anyone who wishes to add their voice to the survey results.

We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding the delay in making the public survey available.

Please contact the CCA at CrozetCommunity@gmail.com if you have trouble starting the survey or have other problems or questions regarding the Crozet Community Survey.

Crozet Independence Day Celebration 2017


The Seventh Annual Crozet Independence Day Parade, Celebration, and Fireworks,  Saturday, July 1, 2017

It all starts with the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD) parade at 5:00 PM at Crozet Elementary School and goes down Crozet Avenue through downtown Crozet to Claudius Crozet Park.  The Parade Grand Marshal is Crozet lifetime firefighter Lewis Barnette.  we hope that the Richmond Shriners’ ACCA Mini-Patrol cars are one of the many entries in the parade.

If you would like to be a part of the 2017 Crozet Fireman’s parade, please submit your entry to be in the parade  to ensure you are included in the lineup. Lineup will be based on a first come basis. Horses/livestock will be placed near or at the end of the parade. Lineup will begin at 4:00 P.M. at Crozet Elementary School and the parade ends at Claudius Crozet Park.   Awards will be presented around 7:30 P.M.

The celebration begins at Claudius Crozet Park after the parade, where there will be live music by local band Lockjaw, as well as bounce houses and games for children.  Bring a lawn chair if you want to be comfortable as you listen to the local band, LockJaw.  Pam Garrison from HitKicker 99.7 will MC the event and their mascot, the Hitkickin Chickin will be there!  Traditional American Fourth of July fare will be available, including barbecue from Smoked BBQ, hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza,  popcorn, apple pie,and sno-cones, as well as vegetarian and vegan choices, tacos, and other favorites!  Starr Hill, Blue Mountain,  & Pro Re Nada Beer and Bold Rock Cider will also be available for a separate cost.  Event culminates at 9:30 PM with a stupendous fireworks show. (We have it at 9:30 PM so it’s late enough to be dark, but not too late to for the youngsters to view the show.)

There are no pets allowed in the event and we’ll provide designated smoking areas and ask that you only smoke in those areas.  If you live nearby Crozet Park, we encourage you to walk!

How much would you pay for such good times?  All that’s asked is a donation of $4 per person (children 12 and under free) as you enter to park to help pay for the fireworks and event expenses.  The non-profit civic groups in Crozet are the ones that benefit from any money raised above the cost of the event, so please be generous. In past years, we’ve donated thousands of dollars to CVFD, and other civic groups.

Check out our Facebook page at: http://facebook.com/Crozet.Independence.Day.Celebration

The event is sponsored by the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department, Crozet Community Association, Claudius Crozet Park, Crozet Lions Club,  Life Journey Church, Crozet Board of Trade, and several other area churches, and citizen volunteers.
