New Town Design Procedures


Newtown in twilightThe proffers and adopted design guidelines for New Town call for two categories of items to be submitted to the New Town Design Review Board (DRB) and to James City County for review.  These two categories are:

  • Development Plans
  • Master Plans, Design Guidelines, and Amendments

The attached document is a summary of the procedures that will be followed for plans and other items that are reviewed by the New Town Design Review Board and the County.  The reader should refer to the proffers and design guidelines.  Standard County regulatory review and approvals may also be necessary beyond those stated here.

For more information on the review process please see the New Town Design Procedures brochure. Leanne Reidenbach, Senior Planner, is the staff liason to the DRB.

Should you have further questions call the JCC Planning Division - 757-253-6685.
