Public Hearing on Crozet Historic District Set for August 13


The Virginia Department of Historic Resources will hold a public information meeting on the application to create an historic district for Crozet August 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the County Office Building Auditorium in Charlottesville.

The district is an honorary designation that places no restrictions on property owners. There will be a brief presentation of legal information by the VDHR and a slideshow and overview of National Register nomination by Jennifer Hallock, of Arcadia Preservation, who prepared the application documents for the district.

The nomination to add Crozet’s oldest buildings to the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register will then be presented to the State Review Board September 20 at a 10 a.m. meeting at the Pamplin Historical Park Education Center in Petersburg. Board action should be announced within 10 days of that meeting. Virginia has 490 historic districts.
