Grid Plan Favored for Barnes Lumber Development
Crozet Gazette Thursday, July 02, 2015 at midnight
The Downtown Crozet Initiative held its follow-up meeting June 11 at Crozet Elementary School to get public reaction to three preliminary plans for the development of the former Barnes Lumber Company property in downtown Crozet. The plans, which were meant to demonstrate conceptual options, were the product of a well-attended meeting May 27 when developer Frank Stoner asked Crozetians to describe what they thought should happen on the property. Stoner is one of five co-owners of the parcels in Crozet New Town Associates LLC and his development services company, Milestone Partners, is handling the nuts and bolts of their development.
“We opened this up to the public and said this needs to be a public-private partnership,” said Stoner. “Without that, I don’t think we can be successful, but with it, I think we can.”
