Four open house public meetings are scheduled where citizens can learn more about the Comprehensive Plan Review and provide their input on York County’s long-range planning document that extends to 2040. The meetings are held from 5 to 8 p.m.:
- Thursday, May 30 at Bruton High School (185 East Rochambeau Drive)
- Wednesday, June 5 at Tabb Library (100 Long Green Boulevard)
- Thursday, June 6 at Queens Lake Middle School (124 West Queens Drive)
- Monday, June 10 at Yorktown Library (8500 George Washington Memorial Highway)
No formal presentations are planned for these meetings and citizens may come and go during each three-hour session. Large-scale maps depicting land use, roads, and more will be available to review. Citizens will have the opportunity to speak with County staff and members of the Comprehensive Plan Review Steering Committee. During these meetings, citizens are encouraged to voice their opinions about how they would like to see York County develop in the future. Staff will answer questions and record citizen comments. Residents also may write their comments down on one of several flip charts that will be placed throughout the meeting space.
Residents unable to attend, but who wish to voice their opinions, may do so by leaving a voice mail message at (757) 890-DATA (3282) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Comprehensive Plan Review website – www.York2040.com – features the committee roster, meeting minutes and presentations, an ongoing blog about committee activities, and much more. As part of the plan review process, York County contracted with Southeastern Institute for Research (SIR) to perform a scientific telephone survey (now completed) and an online survey. To access the online survey, visit http://bit.ly/York2040. The survey can be accessed from the York2040 website as well.
