Two large residential projects proposed for Crozet, one roughly 98 units next to Cory Farm on Rt. 250, and the other about 89 units next to Orchard Acres and Crozet Crossings, will be presented to the Crozet Community Advisory Committee at its meeting Dec. 16. Proponents of each project will have 45 minutes to describe it and answer questions from the committee.
The project that is proposed to connect to Orchard Drive will require a special use permit to build a road with a culvert over Powell’s Creek. The project on Rt. 250 will have a single entrance on the highway. Both are proposed as a mix of single-family homes and townhouses.
The CCAC was formed by the Albemarle Board of Supervisors to advise it on the implementation of the Crozet Master Plan and to allow developers to hear community reactions to their plans at an early stage of development, rather than at the final step where formal county approval is being voted on.
The CCAC meets monthly at 7 p.m. in Crozet Library’s community meeting room. The supervisor and planning commissioner for White Hall District attend its meetings.
