In order to safely perform this work, Parks and Rec staff began the lowering the upper lake Tuesday March 3rd and the site contractor is schedule to start work Monday March 9th. Over the next three weeks the upper lake water level will be lowered and certain areas will be closed to the general public. The closed areas will be posted with orange safety fencing and signage stating “DANGER Construction Area No Trespassing.”  We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is the County’s goal to keep the areas safe for the community for future years to come.  (Per Amy Smith <ASmith@albemarle.org>)

Crozet Master Plan Update – Phase 2 Workshop #1

Crozet 2020 Master Plan Update
Phase 2 – Character and Land Use Workshop
Monday, January 13, 2020 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
at Western Albemarle High School (WAHS)

This workshop does NOT assume you have been to any of the other workshops. Come if this is your first Crozet Master Plan Revision Workshop or your second or third. What matters is you come and give your opinion and learn about the Crozet Master Plan.

The Purpose of the Event

During this workshop, we’ll work with community members to review and update the 2010 land use recommendations for Crozet’s centers of activity (such as Downtown, ACME/Starr Hill, Old Trail and Clover Lawn) and Crozet’s boundaries. Together, we’ll work to clarify how these areas should look and be used over time.

What Will We Talk About?

We’ll look to Crozet community members to respond to these questions:
  • After reflecting on the 2010 Master Plan’s recommendations for each center, should anything be added or updated to reflect Crozet today?
  • How should Crozet’s centers of activity relate or transition to the neighborhoods around them?
  • How should Crozet’s centers of activity be used in the future? What should they look like?
  • What are the appropriate uses and intensities of development along Crozet’s Route 250 edge?
  • Should any adjustments be made to Crozet’s Development Area boundary?

How Will We Use Your Input?

Staff will utilize community feedback to update land use designations and supporting recommendations for areas in and around Crozet’s Centers of activity. Any potential Development Area boundary adjustments will be included for review at the February workshop.
If you are unable to attend this workshop, we will have an online opportunity for you to provide feedback. We will send out an email and a facebook notice when that is available.

Learn more about the Crozet Master Plan.
