Input sought for the Historic Triangle comprehensive plan update
James City County, the City of Williamsburg, and York County are jointly reviewing their comprehensive plans and input from the community is needed. The localities will host four community forums to give you an opportunity to share your vision for the overall Historic Triangle and for the focus areas listed below where locality boundaries meet. Maps of the focus areas and more information are available on www.htplanning.org.
Bring your opinions, your knowledge, and your neighbors to one or more of the following meetings:
- Riverside/Busch/Marquis area: Thursday, Feb. 2, 7-9 p.m. Magruder Elementary School Cafetorium, 700 Penniman Rd.
- Lightfoot/Pottery area: Thursday, Feb. 23 - 7-9 p.m. Warhill High School Auditorium, 4615 Opportunity Way
- Northeast Triangle and surrounding area: Monday, Feb. 27 - 7-9 p.m. Williamsburg Community Building, 401 North Boundary St.
- Yorktown/Lower York County: Thursday, March 15 7-8:45 p.m. Tabb Library Meeting Room, 100 Long Green Blvd.
The comprehensive plan is the long-range plan for the locality’s physical development and is used to evaluate development proposals and guide local decisions. While each locality will be conducting its own independent comprehensive plan review and developing its own plan, the coordinated timing of these reviews will provide an opportunity for discussion about issues of mutual interest, such as transportation, housing, and economic development.
