Opinion

Last month the Gazette opposed the installation of a cell phone tower above the home bleachers at Western Albemarle High School. It should be refused outright, or if allowed, it should be moved to the most distant spot from people on the school grounds. In one of those miracles of the modern age, that editorial was noticed by a California...
I need to ask the most terrifying question that haunted every parent this past week. What if it was Crozet? What if it happened here? In our schools? To our children and our teachers?

The cell phone tower proposed to loom over the home bleachers at Western Albemarle High School should not be permitted, or if allowed, should be moved to the most remote corner of the property possible.

If you agree with it, I encourage you to contact them to express yourself. I asked the CCA to make a statement that Crozet is an inclusive...

Polluted stormwater runoff from developed areas is the only growing source of pollution to the Rivanna...
From Steve Landes I am grateful to all of the residents of Crozet who joined me at the Crozet Public Library for the first of three town hall meetings I held prior to the start of the General Assembly session. As always, I enjoyed the thoughtful questions and ideas I received from those in attendance. I would like to restate my...
