The July Fourth Holiday was spectacular!

Thanks to everyone for three great parades. We had a great group of people walking with us at each location and community members were out in droves. We were in Crozet on July 2, Free Union on July 3, and Earlysville on July 4. Each parade is quite different and each was spectacular in its own way; so much fun for all. Pictures below:

Citizen Comment Requested on July 13 – Bypass and Government Process

Chair of the Board, Ann Mallek, has added the change in policy on the Western Bypass to the agenda for the evening Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday, July 13, 2011. Citizen comment, two minutes per speaker, is invited.

There are two distinct issues of concern: One is the vote on changing the wording of the MPO to allow funds to be spent on construction of the roadway. The other, separate issue, is the destruction of local government processes during late night action votes without particular public comment.

We must begin rebuilding the public’s confidence in their representative local government.
