Planning Commission to hold Public Hearing on Draft Comprehensive Plan Update


January 16, 2013
     The York County Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing to receive public comment on the draft updated Comprehensive Plan titled Charting the Course to 2023: The County of York Comprehensive Plan. The public hearing will take place at the Commission's regular meeting on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the Board Room at York Hall, 301 Main Street in Yorktown. The draft updated plan can be downloaded from the Planning Division website at
     The Comprehensive Plan is the long-range plan for the physical development of the county, and the Code of Virginia requires that it be reviewed at least once every five years. The five-year Comprehensive Plan review began in February 2012 with a series of community forums conducted jointly with James City County and Williamsburg, followed by public meetings in May and June that were targeted specifically to York County citizens. The Planning Commission then held a series of work sessions from June through October to review and discuss the various elements of the Plan, and a telephone survey of county residents was conducted in August to obtain statistically valid data regarding general community goals relating to the physical development of the county. These efforts culminated in the preparation of the draft updated Plan.
