Westhall and Westlake residents have seen traffic and speeding problems increase dramatically in their neighborhoods over the last few years as an extension of Eastern Avenue connecting Park Ridge Drive to Westhall Drive exposed the area to an influx of through-traffic.

The Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) took a firm stance against increased housing density without commensurate infrastructure at its November 30 meeting after months of discussion during the ongoing Master Plan update process.
