ABOUT the Crozet Community Association (CCA)

The CCA was incorporated in February 1985 by a group of local Crozet residents who saw the need to work together to protect, preserve, and enhance our Crozet community and establish a forum where all are welcome.  We meet on the second Thursday of the odd-numbered months (e.g., January, March) at 7:30 PM at the Field School.
