We are writing again this year to ask for your enthusiastic support of our small town tradition—our annual Crozet Independence Day parade, celebration, and fireworks show set for Saturday, July 1. The fun starts with a parade down Crozet Avenue starting at 5 p.m. We’re hoping the parade will be better and bigger than last year! Anyone interested in joining...
Not many small towns have the spirit or available volunteer expertise to undertake a professional quality survey of their citizens. That’s another thing that sets Crozet apart from the usual. The Gazette congratulates the committee that has worked for the last eight months to prepare the survey form that you will find in this issue’s center pages. Those pages are...
This past May, Crozet Park hosted its 37th annual Crozet Arts & Crafts Festival. The traditional rains came several days before and many of us wondered if this year’s event would be a muddy mess.

Not only is this a threat to personal and public safety, and an encroachment on my right to enjoy the park, but it’s also a Class IV misdemeanor. Since I’ve lived in Greenwood...
The Square Comes First Last month Crozetians were asked for ideas about how to spend part of the Neighborhood Funding Initiative, a $1.4 million surplus in the county budget that the Supervisors will distribute to “quality-of-life” projects in its seven growth areas. Last month we also learned that renovation of The Square will cost about $250,000, more than the $200,000...
