The Planning Commission Working Group (PCWG) will hold a work session on Wednesday, May 6 at 4 p.m. to continue its work on Engage 2045, the process to update the 2015 Comprehensive Plan entitled Toward 2035: Leading the Way. The PCWG is comprised of all seven members of the Planning Commission and one member of the Community Participation Team (CPT) and is tasked with leading the development of the draft Comprehensive Plan. The PCWG’s agenda for this meeting will include a preliminary discussion of key issues needing to be addressed during the plan development and identification of policy-related questions for future community engagement efforts.
The meeting will be held electronically pursuant to the Continuity of Government Ordinance adopted by the Board of Supervisors on April 14, 2020. The meeting will be accessible on public access cable channel TV48 or on the County’s YouTube channel youtube.com/user/jamescitycounty. Citizen comments may be submitted via US Mail to the Planning Commission Secretary, PO Box 8784, Williamsburg, VA 23187; via electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by leaving a message on the Public Comment Hotline at 757-253-6750.

The Comprehensive Plan is the County’s master plan for guiding future growth. It is reviewed every five years and is used to evaluate development proposals and guide the decisions of County departments over the next 20 years. As the update process continues, the CPT will provide County citizens and business community with many opportunities to participate in the process, including public meetings, online questionnaires and events.
