Review the Crozet Master Plan Draft Land Use Chapter

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 content for the Land Use chapter of the Master Plan that has been developed based on feedback gathered over the past 16 months.
The draft guiding principle for the Land Use chapter is to "Support and strengthen Crozet’s history as a self-sustaining town while ensuring that new and infill development is compatible in scale and design and provides housing choice for all community members.

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 March 22nd - April 5th, 2021. You may also submit your comments directly to Rachel Falkenstein, Planning Manager [email protected]. 
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 focused on updating the community's vision and guiding principles that lay the foundation for the Master Plan document.
  • Phase 2 involved Focus Area Input and Design Strategies. During this phase, staff worked 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 consisted of a period of recommendations drafting and refinement.
  • Phase 4 (current phase) will include drafting each chapter and taking the Final Master Plan Draft through public comment, public hearings, and approval processes.
