Joint Planning Forums for Williamsburg, James City Co and York Co.

Community planning is a community effort, and citizen participation is vital to the success of that effort. Community planning is a community effort, and citizen participation is vital to the success of that effort.

For the first time ever, the City of Williamsburg, James City County and York County will all be coordinating the  update of their individual Comprehensive Plans

There will be a series of four joint public forums in February and March 2012 to give residents of the Historic Triangle an opportunity to tell local planners and Planning Commissioners what their vision is both for the Historic Triangle and for key geographic areas where jurisdictional boundaries meet. What do you like about living and/or working in the Historic Triangle, and what changes would you like to see in the next 20 years? What challenges do we face with regard to housing, the local economy, transportation, and the environment? What additional public facilities will be needed? Planning Commission members and staff from all three localities will be present at each of these forums to hear your ideas. Even though the process is coordinated, each jurisdiction will be adopting its own Comprehensive Plan.

So, bring  your opinions, your knowledge, and your neighbors to one or more of the following meetings:

 

  • Riverside/Busch Gardens/Marquis Shopping area: Thursday, Feb. 2, 7-9 p.m.
    Magruder Elementary School Cafeteria, 700 Penniman Rd.
  • Lightfoot/Pottery area: Thursday, Feb. 23, 7-9 p.m.
    Warhill High School Auditorium, 4615 Opportunity Way
  • Northeast Triangle and surrounding area: Monday, Feb. 27, 7-9 p.m.
    Williamsburg Community Building, 401 North Boundary St.
  • Yorktown/Lower York County: Thursday, March 15, 7-8:45 p.m.
    Tabb Library Meeting Room, 100 Long Green Blvd.
