Who Is Crozet? That's What We're Aiming to Answer

As Crozet evolves, it is important to communicate a clear and distinct identity that celebrates the unique characteristics and future goals of the community. Who is Crozet? What do we want it to become? Those are two important questions we plan to tackle in the coming months. And, we’re asking for the community’s help.

The redevelopment of downtown Crozet is moving forward. Final designs for the plaza and Phase 1 are expected to be approved by the end of this year. If this occurs, groundbreaking for the new plaza will take place in early 2020. To ensure that downtown Crozet develops in a way that preserves the assets that make it so special, we’ve hired local firm Hive Creative Group to help us define Crozet’s identity. Together, we hope to develop a strategy that acknowledges Crozet’s roots, celebrates the current community, and determines a vision for the future. This is an important step; if we don’t define who Crozet is, outsiders are going to do it for us. No one understands Crozet better than the people who live here, so we’re hoping for community support and participation!

Hive Creative Group plans to host two community brainstorm sessions as part of the first phase of this branding process. The two sessions will cover the same topics of discussion. They will be held at Restoration in the large event room. The session dates and times are as follows:

Tuesday, May 21, from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Thursday, May 23, from 11 AM - 1 PM

Please click the date above to RSVP (required for planning purposes).

We’re excited to get started on this process and hope we can all work together to benefit the future of Crozet!
