Join Us For Our Next Topic: Land Use Recommendations
Crozet Community Advisory Committee Virtual Meeting
at 7 pm
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, the focus will return to the Future Land Use chapter. Over several community meetings and a work session with the Planning Commission, revisions have been made in response to feedback received.

Staff will present the latest Future Land Use chapter draft at this week's Crozet Community Advisory Committee meeting. Attend this virtual meeting live to learn more and ask questions.
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.
