Shaping Our Shores
Master Plan Update Approved

The Shaping Our Shores (SOS) Master Plan was adopted and implemented in 2009 to guide the revitalization of three of James City County’s waterfront park facilities–Chickahominy Riverfront Park, Jamestown Beach Event Park and the James City County Marina. During the 2019 update process, the plan was presented to the James City County Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee in January, to the Planning Commission in March, and to the Board of Supervisors in July, where it received unanimous approval by all three entities. To review the approved improvement maps and for more details, please visit Shaping Our Shores.
