An Important Message for all James City County Citizens:

JCC Land Use Map 102709

The JCC Comp Plan enters final phases of approval with a public hearing on Nov. 10.

The Board of Supervisors will begin consideration of the Comprehensive Plan on Tuesday November 10, 2009, with a work session at 4:00 PM followed by a public hearing at 7:00 PM in Building F at the County Complex on Mounts Bay Road.  The Board has a tentative second work session set for Tuesday November 17, 2009 at 4:00 PM, followed by a final vote on the plan during the regular meeting on Tuesday November 24, 2009 at 7:00 PM.

This is your last opportunity to weigh in on the plans for growth and development plans for James City County.

Active Williamsburg Alliance has participated in the public input phase on transportation. The language in the proposed JCC Comp Plan includes considerable emphasis on a multi-modal transportation system, highlighting the need for bicycle and pedestrian facilities and further development of the Greenway Master Plan.  These are the right strategies.  Now it’s time to make sure the County follows through on its plan.

Attention James City County Residents! The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the Comprehensive Plan on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 6:30 PM in the Board Room of Building F at the County Complex on Mounts Bay Road.  This will probably be the only opportunity for public comment before the Planning Commission.  As currently planned, once the public hearing is closed on September 30th, the Planning Commission will discuss and vote on the Comp Plan at its regular meeting on October 7, 2009 … without the opportunity for additional public comment before the vote.  If you care about the future of your community, you need to be at the September 30th public hearing to voice your concerns.

The materials for the Planning Commission’s public hearing on the 2009 Draft Comprehensive Plan are now available online. Please contact the Planning Division at (757)253-6685 or for more information.
