BACKGROUND:

At the meeting of November 3, 2004, the Board reviewed the revised Community Profile language provided by staff.  The revised Profile is intended to update the existing Comprehensive Plan Crozet section, summarize major recommendations of the Crozet Master Plan, and clarify the role of the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) relative to the implementation measures recommended by the Master Plan.  The Board discussed the accuracy and timeliness of the funding estimates included in the Master Plan, and directed staff to add language to the Crozet Master Plan, Section II, Strategies for Implementation and to the Implementation Timelines, noting that these costs estimates were considered to be accurate at the time of the final report (July 9, 2003), but may change in the future.  The added language also emphasizes the role of the CIP as the final authority for funding decisions.  (See Attachments A and B for revised language, indicated in bold font.)

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

2.1 Protect and/or preserve the County’s rural character; and, 3.3 Develop and implement policies that address the County’s growth and urbanization while continuing to enhance the factors that contribute to the quality of life in the County

 

DISCUSSION:

With the addition of the clarifications noted above, both the Planning Commission recommended that the Crozet Master Plan and the revised Crozet Community Profile contain language addressing the cost estimates and the CIP as the final authority for capital expenditures.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Adopt CPA 2003-07 Crozet Master Plan Comprehensive Plan Amendment replacing the existing Land Use Plan Profile for the Crozet Community with the revised Crozet Profile, and incorporating by reference the Crozet Master Plan language recommended by the Planning Commission with recent changes noting the general nature and date of the cost estimates and final authority of the CIP for capital expenditures.
