Share Your Feedback on Transportation in Crozet – Crozet Master Plan Update

General Albemarle County News
Review Crozet Master Plan Draft Transportation Recommendations
Since September 2019, Albemarle County has been exploring alongside the Crozet community how to best reflect the community’s vision for future development in the latest update to the Crozet Master Plan. This month, we’ve focused on sharing the draft transportation recommendations that have been developed based on feedback gathered over the past 15 months.
The draft guiding principle for the Transportation chapter is to “create a multimodal transportation network that is safe and accessible for all community members, regardless of age, race, income and ability.”
We invite you to share your feedback with our project team. Community feedback will be shared with the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors as part of the review process. The Board of Supervisors will provide final direction and approval on the Crozet Master Plan.
Click the buttons below to read the draft or share feedback. The questionnaire will be open from February 2nd – February 19th, 2021. You may also submit your comments directly to Rachel Falkenstein, Planning Manager rfalkenstein@albemarle.org.

Crozet Community Advisory Committee Virtual Meeting
What Is a Master Plan? 
A Master Plan is a collaboratively developed document that describes a community’s vision for future development, using text, maps, and diagrams. In Albemarle County, Master Plans are used to guide future public and private development and to coordinate and prepare more detailed plans.
Master Plan Update Process 
The public participation process for the Crozet Master Plan includes four phases:
  • Phase 1 focuses on updating the community’s vision and guiding principles that lay the foundation for the Master Plan document.
  • Phase 2 involves Focus Area Input and Design Strategies. During this phase, staff works with the community to identify specific recommendations and associated updates to maps on the topics of Character/Land Use, Connectivity/ Transportation, Conservation/ Parks & Green Systems, and Implementation.
  • Phase 3 (current phase) consists of a period of plan drafting, refinement, and endorsements.
  • Phase 4 will take the Final Master Plan Draft through public comment, public hearings, and approval processes.

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.
