      In 1754, with the French and Indians attacking British settlements in the Ohio Valley, Benjamin Franklin proposed “a plan for the union of all the colonies.” To illustrate the need for unity, Franklin published (and some think drew) one of America’s earliest political cartoons and perhaps the earliest symbol of a united America (albeit under British...Read M […]

      Should we blame the founding generation for planting the seeds of discord that make today’s political climate so toxic? Perhaps a little. The men and women of the Revolutionary era, argues Stephen Solomon, redefined free expression, creating a bedrock American principle that makes no distinction between pleasant and genuinely nasty speech. In other words, we […]

Xanterra to withdraw plans for Kingsmill in Williamsburg VA

Members of the The Club at Kingsmill received the announcement below of Xanterra Kingsmill, LLC’s intent to withdraw its master plan amendment for action before James City County.

Dear Members of The Club at Kingsmill,

In an effort to keep our members updated on news and information as it relates to the Resort and the Kingsmill community in general, please be advised that Xanterra Kingsmill, LLC ("Xanterra"), the owner of Kingsmill Resort, intends to withdraw its master plan amendment application in Case No.  Z-0002-2014/MP-0002-2014 currently pending before James City County.  Given the controversy surrounding the application related to new development within the Kingsmill community, Xanterra has decided to withdraw the application at this time in order to analyze ways in which the application may be modified to more fully address various issues and concerns raised by certain County personnel and Kingsmill residents to date.  As part of this analysis, Xanterra will consider development alternatives as they relate to existing by right development parcels within Kingsmill in order to possibly shift some development activity to sites that would not require the level of approval associated with the current application. It is Xanterra’s hope that these efforts will ultimately lead to the ability to submit a revised land use application that is more warmly received by the County and all other stakeholders within the Kingsmill community.

Sincerely,

Wayne Nooe

General Manager
