The County undertook a public engagement approach that was cumulative in nature so that one round of engagement built upon the previous round. Each round was also extensively advertised and publicized through the County’s website, social media channels, articles in local newspapers, op-eds, This Week in James City County podcast, flyers, WATA bus advertisements, and other advertising outlets. The County heard from more than 1900 participant during the Engage 2045 process.
As shown in the timeline of the Engage 2045 process below, each round of public meetings has fed into a specific project phase for the Planning Commission Working Group’s technical review of the Comprehensive Plan.
Thank you for your continued interest in the Engage 2045 process, and please stay involved during the consideration and adoption of Our County, Our Shared Future – James City County 2045 Comprehensive Plan!
