Virginia RV Park Wants to Triple in Size
The county supervisors of James City County, Va., will conduct a public hearing on Nov. 9 about a request to expand the American Heritage RV Park from 95 to 327 sites.
They deferred the case in October and sent it back to the planning commission for review because there were a few changes to the application, including a change in the Virginia Department of Transportation’s assessment of nearby roads. VDOT now recommends expanding Maxton Lane, which the applicant has agreed to do, the Williamsburg-Yorktown Daily reported.
Supervisors were also concerned about the new Economic Opportunity (EO) designation that now covers the property and surrounding area, and supervisors wanted to be sure the expansion wouldn’t interfere with future master planning of the EO area.
The applicant supports the idea of an EO zone and has added new language to the application that future master planning and development of the property aren’t precluded by the expansion. The planning commission approved the new application with its few additions on November 3.
