Shaping Our Shores
Adopted by the Board of Supervisors on June 9, 2009, Shaping Our Shores is a master plan for three sites located along James City County waterways: the former Jamestown Beach Campground (JBC), Jamestown Yacht Basin (JYB) and Chickahominy Riverfront Park (CRP). JBC and JYB are located on Jamestown Road along the James River and Powhatan Creek. CRP is located on Route 5 where Gordon’s Creek meets the Chickahominy River. The Master Plan addresses the long-range physical development, use and stewardship of these three sites. It presents a vision for the physical environment that promotes and supports the values and goals of James City County citizens.
For each of the three sites, the Master Plan provides a comprehensive assessment of the existing facilities and infrastructure, future use and development options and an action plan. During the development of the Master Plan careful consideration was given to both the legally required and publicly expected conservation efforts for these properties. Preservation and protection of the existing open space, viewsheds, ecological diversity, and cultural resources are balanced with maximizing the potential for the public’s use and enjoyment of these unique properties. The Master Plan will be used in the County’s Comprehensive Plan and Capital Improvement Program to guide future land use planning, funding, maintenance, management and administrative matters.
