BACKGROUND:

The Crozet Master Plan identifies the need for zoning changes in downtown Crozet in order to fully implement the Planís land use recommendations and goal of economic vitality for downtown Crozet.  On March 17, 2008, after numerous Crozet community meetings and County Planning Commission work sessions, the Board held a work session to discuss the draft outline of zoning regulations for the new Crozet Downtown Zoning District, as well as the boundaries for the proposed County-initiated zoning map amendment as recommended by the Planning Commission. The Board provided feedback to staff regarding the recommendations, and directed staff to draft the zoning text amendment for the Crozet Downtown Zoning District and to schedule a joint public hearing of the Board and the Planning Commission to receive public comment on the proposed zoning text amendment and zoning map amendment.  Please see background information provided to the Board at its March 5, 2008 and March 17, 2008 meetings at
