Planning Commission recommends approval for residential development near Williamsburg Crossing

The James City County Planning Commission recommended approval yesterday for a proposal to build a 200-unit condo development near the intersection of routes 5 and 199. The meeting drew heated public comments about the impact the development could have on neighboring communities.the prommenade at john tyler crossing

Neighbors concerned about the development proposal for The Promenade at John Tyler said it would bring too much crowding. Others said it would clog traffic. Still more were concerned about the impact on wildlife. Nearly 30 people showed up to the public hearing on the proposal at the James City County Government Center.

Vernon Geddy, an attorney for Virignia Beach-based builder Franciscus Homes said the project would be a “shot in the arm” to the property, adjacent to Williamsburg Crossing. Several retail outlets have sat vacant in the shopping center.

Geddy said the housing units would range in price from $170,000 to $350,000. Additionally, Geddy said a valuable feature of the proposal was proffers to improve King’s Way, a road he said that has not been kept well and is need of repair.
