Virginia Officials Eye Park Development
Officials in James City County, Va., are hoping to build a riverfront park on land acquired for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the settlement of Jamestown.
County planners this week outlined a proposed three-section park that would define the area's historic character. The estimated cost of the park is $52.3 million, according to WHSV-TV, Ch. 3, Harrisonburg, Va.
Under the proposal, the Jamestown Yacht Basin, the Jamestown Beach Campground and the Chickahominy Riverfront Park would all be developed to accommodate a variety of events. The county would run the park system.
The county has scheduled a Jan. 28 public hearing on the plan.
