The Planning Commission Working Group (PCWG) was tasked with leading the review and development of the draft Comprehensive Plan. The PCWG consisted of all seven members of the Planning Commission, and Ginny Wertman, representing the Community Participation Team (CPT). The CPT shared themed inputs from citizens collected during the Engage 2045 planning process with the PCWG to help inform policy direction of the new Comprehensive Plan.
Over the course of the two-year Comprehensive Plan update process, the PCWG goals were to:
Review community input;
Guide and monitor the scenario planning and modeling process to evaluate potential futures for James City County and their impacts on the community; and
Work with County staff and consultants to develop the vision, plan and implementation framework.
Review the applications of landowners who wish to change the land use designation of their properties
After the PCWG worked with staff to revise the Comprehensive Plan text and land use map, the PCWG forwarded the updated Plan to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors toward the conclusion of the process.
