Resolution in support of Retaining the Porch on the La Cocina del Sol/Modern Barber Building in Crozet

 

            WHEREAS, it appears that some portion of the porch of the La Cocina del Sol/Modern Barber Shop building (the “Building”) fronting on Route 240 in Crozet may be in the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (“VDOT”) right-of-way; and

 

            WHEREAS, as a consequence, removal of the Building’s porch, or some portion thereof, may be under consideration by the County of Albemarle; and

 

            WHEREAS, it appears that petitions in support of saving the Building’s porch have been signed by more than 1,700 citizens of Crozet; and

 

            WHEREAS, the Crozet Community Advisory Council believes that the Building’s porch adds to the character of Crozet, is consistent with the goals of the Master Plan and is part of the history of the Building and in turn Crozet;

 

            NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises the Crozet Community Advisory Council unanimously adopted the following resolution at its August 16, 2007, meeting:

 

            Be it, and it hereby is, RESOLVED, that the Crozet Community Advisory Council makes known its belief that the Building’s porch as currently constructed and positioned adds to the character and ambience of Crozet and is consistent with the goals of the Master Plan and therefore should be protected; and

 

            It was FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Crozet Community Advisory Council accordingly requests that all action be taken by the appropriate Albemarle County authorities to insure that no portion of the Building’s porch is removed incident to any activities undertaken by either Albemarle County or the Virginia Department of Transportation, or any person(s) or entity(ies) acting on their behalf.
