Master Plan Updates

The 2021 Master Plan update will provide staff, elected officials and citizens with a valuable planning tool to guide the development of three park facilities – the James City County Recreation Center Park, Upper County Park and the Warhill Sports Complex over the next ten years and beyond. Over 175 comments were received during the citizen engagement portion of the process, and will be incorporated into the final plans. The final step will be the adoption of these plans by the James City County Board of Supervisors this fall. Check the local media for the results of that process. You can continue to review the proposed changes for these facilities and improvements will be completed based on community and citizen needs as well as available funding.

The Shaping Our Shores (SOS) Master Plan received unanimous approval by the James City County Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee, the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. The 2019 Plan guides the  revitalization of three of James City County’s waterfront park facilities–Chickahominy Riverfront Park, Jamestown Beach Event Park and the James City County Marina. To review the approved improvement maps and for more details, please visit Shaping Our Shores.
