The new elementary school will bear the name of the late Dr. J. Blaine Blayton, a well‐known African American physician who practiced medicine for 50 years in the Williamsburg area and beyond. The new middle school will honor Lois S. Hornsby, a longtime fixture in the Williamsburg , VA community.

Fox Hill and Longhill Station are the nearest neighborhoods to Windmill Meadows.

windmill meadows williamsburg va Associated Developers and Beamon Construction have opened a new community off of Centerville Rd in Williamsburg James City County Virginia. Upon researching the approval of the neighborhood on the James City County Planning site I noticed that there is a restrictive covenant which prohibits outdoor irrigation of any kind from the public water supply. This apparently is part of A Water Conservation Agreement with our local water supplier JCSA ( James City County Service Authority). This is a pretty radical proposal. NO watering your yard !

It will be interesting to see if anyone installs a cistern to store rainwater. I am assuming this would be the only way you can water a yard in Windmill Meadows.

Homes are being built by Beamer Construction of Williamsburg VA. Beamer has built many homes in the area and was the developer of the Powhatan Secondary community.

The homes being built by Beamer Construction at Windmill Meadows are Earthcraft Certified.

EarthCraft House is a green building program that serves as a blueprint for healthy comfortable homes that reduce utility bills and protect the environment. The aim of the program is to help home builders be leaders in smart growth management and environmental stewardship.

Building an EarthCraft House is about constructing a healthy, more valuable home while minimizing environmental impacts. EarthCraft House follows a systems approach to home building that stresses an understanding of how the different components of a home work together. This approach results in a home that performs better, is more economical for the homeowner and costs little more to build than a comparable home built with standard construction practices.

EarthCraft House guidelines address energy efficiency, durability, indoor air quality, resource efficiency, waste management, and water conservation.

Today’s home buyers want to get the most house for their money. In addition to paying a monthly mortgage, home owners must also pay for utilities, maintenance and repair. All of these factors must be taken into consideration when determining the true cost of home ownership. A durable energy efficient house can be more economical and affordable even if it has a higher asking price than another home built with standard construction practices. (True cost of home ownership ).
