Open letter to all interested parties about RCPFA's status as it relates to Crozet:
The RCPFA BOD has been working with the law firm of Williams Mullen to clarify and define how RCPFA can use the property at Crozet. It is clear that we can use it, but it is not exactly clear how often or what to call that use, etc. It may seem like we have not been very communicative in the last few weeks about this issue, but truth be told the BOD are just reacting to new information as it is available. In short we will not have any events at Crozet for a few weeks, but we anticipate setting a summer date for the EOD wounded warrior run and then 2-3 other charity runs later in the year. Wheeling at the Crozet property will change in its nature, and will probably only be available to non members for a small number of charity events per year. The club will continue to schedule trail cleanups and other members only dates once an understanding is reached with the county.
The Williams Mullen Law Firm is the preeminent zoning firm in the area and their first meeting with the zoning board this week went well. We anticipate getting a written opinion from the zoning board in the next 1-2 weeks (best guess) and we will fill everyone in on the news as we get it.
Please take a moment to help RCPFA with its legal costs, donate at http://rcpfa.com/misc/donate.htm
, I know times are tight, but the club is looking at a few thousand in legal costs to resolve this all and will need members support to do this.
