Why is the update called ‘Historic Past, Sustainable Future’?
The Community Participation Team selected this title and logo for the 2009 Comprehensive Plan update at their meeting on December 11, 2007. “Historic Past, Sustainable Future” was chosen to describe two very important aspects of the James City County community. This first part, Historic Past, maintains ties to our rich historic heritage and resources present throughout the County, such as Jamestown, Freedom Park, the Norge Depot, and many more. The second part, Sustainable Future, shifts focus to ensuring that the County is left in good shape – economically, socially, and ecologically – for future generations. The logo depicts that these two pieces, maintenance of our Historic Past and our desire to create a Sustainable Future, are strongly integrated. They should be considered together to ensure the community provides a safe, productive, healthy, and meaningful setting for all residents, present and future.
