James City County citizens, particularly Toano area residents, and business owners are invited to attend and offer comments at the Toano Study Steering Committee's final workshop, Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Toano Middle School, 7817 Richmond Road. The purpose of the workshop is to solicit input on the proposed design guidelines developed by the Toano Community Character Area Study that will be presented to the County's Planning Commission in December.
Citizens are also invited to attend the meetings of the Steering Committee on Nov. 10 and 18. Both meetings will be held at the James City County Library, 7770 Croaker Road, from 2 to 4 p.m. The Steering Committee will discuss feedback from the workshop and draft design guidelines.
Citizens can also follow the progress of the committee and view meeting materials through the Toano Study Web site at: http://www.jccegov.com/resources/devmgmt/div_devmgmt_planning_projandstudies.html.
Approximately 20 citizens attended the first public workshop on Nov. 2. Consultants from the Renaissance Planning Group presented information on the natural features of Toano, its community profile and plans for future development. During small group sessions, County citizens and steering committee members identified characteristics of Toano and discussed potential improvements and redevelopment of the historic aspects of the community.
