The staff report with the Crozet Master Plan Land Use Recommendations that they will be bringing to the Planning Commission are available by clicking here.   The meeting agenda is available by clicking here.

The Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) passed this resolution after several public feedback sessions with staff regarding their recommended changes to our master plan’s land use sections.  You can also view the CCAC’s votes on each of the proposed changes by clicking here.

As Allie Pesch, the CCAC chair, stated to the Planning Commission: “. . . staff did not make changes to their recommendations based on community or CCAC feedback. For just one example, in more than one meeting there was clear and overwhelming opposition to the inclusion of the 39.4-acre Pleasant Green development in the proposed downtown overlay district (primarily due to a lack of existing historic/affordable housing there), yet it is still in their recommendations.

Please attend this Planning Commission meeting and join the CCAC in insisting that the staff and planning commission listen to the Crozet community.
