Community Workshops Announced to
Review Draft Land Use Study

After approximately 13 months of research and public input, a draft of the Fort Eustis Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is available for review. City of Newport News, James City County, and York County are together hosting community workshops to share the draft plan with the public. The study has been a collaborative effort conducted by city, county, federal officials, residents, and Fort Eustis itself to identify compatible land uses and growth management guidelines near the installation. The process encourages the local community and installation to act as a team in order to prevent or limit any encroachment issues caused by future mission expansion or local growth.

The free workshops are:

Tuesday, January 16, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Abram Frink Community Center
8901 Pocahontas Trail, Williamsburg

Wednesday, January 17, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Denbigh Community Center
15198 Warwick Boulevard, Newport News
