JAMES CITY-A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13, to discuss proposed changes to James City County’s Comprehensive Plan as well as its Future Land Use Map.

The county is in the process of updating its adopted comprehensive plan from 2015.  The county’s Planning Commission is recommending several changes to the comprehensive plan.

Among the proposed changes are the inclusion in the plan of an extension of Mooretown Road to either Croaker Road or Rochambeau Drive; revision of the Rural Lands Designation Description language in the Land Use Chapter in order to allow for a higher gross density to be realized in a cluster configuration as compared to a conventional lot configuration; revision in a section of the Environment Chapter Goals, Strategies and Actions to clarify the intent of the language regarding carbon sequestration approaches; and a recommendation to maintain the Neighborhood Commercial designation for the Land Use Application regarding the parcels across from WindsorMeade Marketplace on the Future Land Use Map.

The James City County Board of Supervisors public hearing on the comprehensive plan is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13 at 5pm in the county government center boardroom, 101-F Mounts Bay Road.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
