March 31st, 2012 by Desiree Parker

jccnotebook3News in the county this week is relatively light, and includes a Planning Commission meeting, information about the Great American Cleanup and a reminder about a rule change at the county skate park. Planning Commission to Meet

The Planning Commission will meet Wednesday to discuss an expansion of a contractor’s office and an amendment to proffers for a church along John Tyler Highway.

David Nice Builder’s would like to expand its existing contractors office on Ware Creek Road. This would increase the square footage of the building by 828 square feet, with the possibility of adding a second floor in the future.

The commission will also consider a proffer amendment for the Seventh-day Adventist church on John Tyler Highway. The church is requesting the ability to maintain a scenic easement area on the property; it is also submitting a special use permit to add a 5,500 square-foot multi-purpose building.

View the agenda on the county website. The commission will meet Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Building F of the county government complex on Mounts Bay Road.

Skate Park Rule Change

Don’t forget that starting April 2, the James City County Skate Park at the James City Williamsburg Community Center will require users to wear helmets.

Volunteer for the Great American Cleanup

Hampton Roads was selected as a kickoff location for Keep America Beautiful’s 2012 Great American Cleanup.

This is a national community involvement program to clean communities; In 2011, more than 3.8 million volunteers participated in 3,600 clean up events in 16,500 communities throughout the United States.

The Hampton Roads event is the only designated event in the state this year and will include hundreds of volunteers cleaning parks, waterways and recreational areas.

The action days are April 27 through 28. Look online to find out how to volunteer and what projects are taking place locally.
