JAMES CITY-Repaving of the driveway and entrance to Jamestown Beach Event Park on Jamestown Road will begin soon.

At its September 28 meeting, the James City Board of Supervisors approved the paving project, will cost roughly $118,000 and begin later this fall.

Jamestown Beach Event Park is one of the most utilized parks in the county. People frequent the park for swimming and sunbathing at the beach along the James River, to kayak or standup paddleboard, or to attend concerts and other events. The driveway and entrance have been in disrepair for quite some time.

The paving project will offer “a better experience and a better presentation of a county park that gets a tremendous amount of use from our residents and others,” James City County Administrator Scott Stevens told listeners during the county’s monthly podcast on October 5.

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
