Imagine Crozet – Crozet Master Plan Revision Kickoff Meeting 9/9/2019

Crozet Master Plan Kickoff Workshop
Share your vision for the future of Crozet!

Monday, September 9th from 6:30-8:00PM
at Western Albemarle High School Cafeteria

The Master Plan is a visionary document used to guide how development and public investment happens in the future. Your participation is key to this process!

Join us for a fun night where we’ll learn about the Master Plan and how the County plans for the future, and share thoughts and ideas about the future of Crozet through conversation and activities.

The Crozet Community Association (CCA) is helping to host and sponsor this event and the workshops to come.

Dinner (pizza from Sal’s) will be available at the workshop on Monday night, September 9, as well as an activity center for the children (Lego Challenges and drawing stuff).  This children’s activity center will have aides there to assist and will be in the WAHS Cafeteria, where all parts of the Workshop will also take place, including the four breakout sessions around the sides of the room, where parents can keep an eye on their children.

About the Master Plan

The Crozet Master Plan is the County’s guiding document for land use, transportation, and parks decisions in Crozet.   This is the second revision to the Crozet Master Plan.  The original Crozet Master Plan was adopted in 2005 and revised the first time in 2010.  The current Crozet Master Plan is available for reference at the Crozet Library or online at Albemarle County’s website.

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.  The Crozet Community Association is helping with hosting these events and highly encourages your active participation and attendance.

Learn more about the Crozet Master Plan.

Stay up-to-date on upcoming meetings and events. Sign up for the Crozet Master Plan A-mail list.

From the August 8, 2019 agenda of the Albemarle County School Board:

Claudius Crozet Park is a 22 acre community non-profit recreational facility open to all. It is managed by Claudius Crozet Park, Inc., a non-profit organization managed by volunteers. Currently, the Park’s Board is in the planning phases of an expanded and updated facility to meet the needs of the growing community. The park is soliciting private donations but they will also be requesting partial funding from the Board of Supervisors later this month.

The new Crozet Park Aquatics and Fitness Center will feature a gymnasium, indoor walking track, fitness areas and community rooms. A key component of the facility is space for after-school and summer programming. Currently, the YMCA leases the existing building and offers programming to only 27 students as it is limited by available space. The new facility will offer space for a program that could serve as many as 300 students.

Affordable, quality after-school care is in great demand throughout the county including the Western Feeder Pattern. There are currently 123 students on the wait lists for the Extended Day Enrichment Program (EDEP) at the four western feeder pattern elementary schools. That figure does not include families who do not apply because they cannot afford the program. As documented in the 2017 program evaluation of EDEP and subsequent Board conversations since, increased access to after-school care opportunities is needed.

The Park Board is seeking a letter of support demonstrating the need for increased after school opportunities before it goes before the Board of Supervisors on August 21st.
