How much is Waynesboro benefiting from Crozet’s growth? How much does Crozet benefit from Waynesboro?
“We’ve seen the dynamic and the shift of people when we look at the demographics and why Wal-Mart and why Home Depot and why Lowe’s have come to Waynesboro sitting right on the 64-81 interchange. Their draw to come here was being able to draw from the Nelson County area, the Crozet area, Charlottesville. So I have to look out beyond that boundary of Waynesboro a little bit in terms of our vision and what I see down the road and be planful about that,” Smith said.
We may have to expand our definition of what is our Metropolitan Statistical Area beyond Charlottesville, Albemarle, Greene, Fluvanna, Nelson, which was added in 2003. I tend to include Louisa and Madison from time to time when I ponder what is “our region;” is the time near for us to include Augusta as well?
Economics know no boundaries. Localities may not see the need for expansion, but businesses most certainly do.
Why else would I join their MLS?
