Brian Wheeler has a great post that about the current Albemarle County redistricting process.
This part is stunning –
However, this report does not include Old Trail Village or Wickham Pond (two developments in Crozet submitted after the committee started its work). It also does not include the proposed development at the Breeden Farm (south of I-64 near Mill Creek and 5th Street). The Breeden Farm alone could be larger than all of the growth projected for Crozet (i.e. there could be housing for more than 12,000 people, the number projected for Crozet).
How does the process have any credibility when developments of this scale are not even being considered in the equation? These developments should not be surprises to anyone; to not include them is ridiculous. People choose homes frequently based solely on school districts and they should have some faith that their kids will have some semblance of stability in their public education. I think this dovetails quite nicely to what I said yesterday about APF’s.
