JAMES CITY-The Stonehouse development in Toano is looking to build up to 600 additional homes in two new subdivisions. Conceptual plans were brought before the James City County Development Review Committee on December 15.

The committee heard two proposals, one for Stonehouse Tract S and another for Stonehouse Tract 11A.

Stonehouse Tract S calls for construction of 300 new residential units, which would consist of 229 detached family units, 36 multi-family units in structures between two to four units, and 35 multi-family units in structures greater than four units. The new homes would be built on more than 173 acres along Six Mount Zion Road.

Meanwhile, the proposal for Stonehouse Tract 11A includes the construction of 320 new single-family homes on more than 131 acres of land also along Six Mount Zion Road.

The Development Review Committee approved the conceptual plans for both projects since they are consistent with the previously approved Master Plan for Stonehouse.

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
