News in the county this week includes an upcoming Board of Supervisors meeting, an upcoming Planning Commission meeting and an Enterprise Zone workshop.
Board of Supervisors Meeting
The Board will hold an organizational meeting Tuesday afternoon.
During the meeting, the Board chooses its Chairman and Vice Chairman, any commission and committee appointments that are expiring or vacant (a few Planning Commissioners have terms that expire), and choose meeting dates, places and times for the upcoming year.
This year, the Board will consider the possibility of changing meetings from Tuesday to Wednesday evenings.
The meeting will take place Tuesday at 4 p.m. in Building F of the county government complex on Mounts Bay Road.
Planning Commission Meeting
The Planning Commission will meet Wednesday to discuss the capital improvement plan and a special use permit for American Pride Automotive’s new location.
Every year, the commission ranks the capital improvement plan requests submitted by county agencies to provide guidance to the board.
The top five projects organized by the Policy Committee are: a renovation for fire station 1, a landfill debris pad; Mill Creek watershed restoration; Jamestown Beach Park entrance, parking and restroom facility; and a contribution to New Horizons.
The commission will also consider a special use permit for a new location for American Pride Automotive. The business wants to open an auto shop and car sales business in the old Pop’s Marine location on Richmond Road.
The commission is also set to consider a master plan amendment for Mason Park, but the applicant is requesting a deferral.
The commission will meet Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Building F of the county government complex on Mounts Bay Road.
Enterprise Zone Workshop
James City County will host an Enterprise Zone workshop on Jan. 18.
