The Crozet Community Advisory Council elected Meg Holden as its chair and Mary Gallo as vice chair at it meeting May 18. Holden, who was serving as vice chair, replaces Michael Marshall, who had been chair for four years. He has served since the CCAC was formed in 2006 and has one year left in his third term. CCAC leadership is elected every spring.

The 15-member CCAC, all appointed by the Board of Supervisors, also welcomed new members John Savage (Cory Farm) and Chuck Johnston (Old Trail), who are appointed for two years and will be eligible for a second term.

The CCAC learned from Ron Lilley of Albemarle County’s Facilities Development office that a free public parking lot containing 58 spaces will be built at the future library site on Library Avenue. It will be tar and gravel chip, Lilley said, because it will have to torn up when construction of the new library begins at some indefinite date in the future. Construction will start in July and be done by September, Lilley said. No overnight parking will be allowed.

Three utility easements are still needed on west side of Crozet Avenue before relocation of power lines can begin, a necessary first step before improvements to the street can start, he also reported.
