Take part in deciding / planning how James City County will use it’s waterfront park areas

 

Shaping Our Shores

Shaping Our Shores is a master planning project for 3 sites located along James City County waterways: the former Jamestown Beach Campground (JBC), Jamestown Yacht Basin (JYB) and Chickahominy Riverfront Park (CRP). JBC and JYB are located on Jamestown Road along the James River and Powhatan Creek.  CRP is located on Route 5 where Gordon’s Creek meets the Chickahominy River.  The Master Plan will address the long-range physical development, use and stewardship of these three sites over the next 20 years. It will present a vision for the physical environment that promotes and supports the values and goals of James City County citizens.

 

In late 2007 the County issued a Request for Proposals and selected Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB) to produce the Master Plan. VHB is a multi-disciplinary planning, design and engineering consulting firm focused on sustainable development and context sensitive design. The project has an estimated completion date of September 2008.

Citizens and community groups can comment on proposed uses and design alternatives at the following session:

Wednesday, May 28 2008

6:15PM-9:00PM

Bldg F Board Room, County Government Complex

101-F Mounts Bay Rd

Williamsburg, VA 23185

Beginning in late May through early June, design alternatives for the 3 sites will be exhibited in the lobbies of Building F at the County Government Complex on Mounts Bay Road and the Williamsburg/James City County Recreation Center at 5301 Longhill Road to solicit feedback. You can also submit your comments and ideas through this website, by direct email to shores@james-city.va.us or by phone to Stephanie Ahrendt, Project Manager, (757) 253-6649.

 

For each of the three sites, the Master Plan will provide a comprehensive assessment of the existing facilities and infrastructure, future use and development options, an action plan and a funding strategy to support the action plan. Careful consideration will be given to both the legally required and publicly expected conservation efforts for these properties. Preservation and protection of the existing open space, viewsheds, ecological diversity, and cultural resources will be balanced with maximizing the potential for the public’s use and enjoyment of these unique properties. The results of this planning process will be used in the County’s Comprehensive Plan and Capital Improvement Program to guide future land use planning, funding, maintenance, management and administrative matters.
