Phase 2 Schedule (Focus Areas & Design Strategies)

During the past few weeks, we’ve been hard at work finding new ways to hear from you while you’re home.

 Starting this month, we’ll be releasing a series of Virtual Workshops and streaming the Crozet Community Advisory Committee’s virtual meetings. You can access these virtual workshops and meetings at www.publicinput.com/imaginecrozet and clicking “Participate” on the appropriate topic.

If you’re unable to access the Internet or have difficulties participating, we are working to make dial-in options available and can provide paper materials upon request. Please contact staff if you need any assistance.

We hope you’re staying well and can’t wait to see you again!

About the Master Plan

The Crozet Master Plan is the County's guiding document for land use, transportation, and parks decisions in Crozet.

From September through December, Albemarle County will host a series of community conversations and workshops to identify an inclusive and shared vision for the future of Crozet. Focus area and topic-specific workshops will begin in January 2020, as informed by your input during the visioning phase. All are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend the forums that interest them.

Stay up-to-date on upcoming meetings and events. Sign up for the Crozet Master Plan Amail list
Do you have questions about the Crozet Master Plan? We'd love to hear from you. Please send your questions or comments to Andrew Knuppel, Neighborhood Planner.
