Northern Jefferson Davis Special Area Plan draft available

The draft of the Northern Jefferson Davis Special Area plan is available to review. Some key features of the plan include: Expanding health, social and educational services close to area residents; continuing to develop pedestrian and bicycling improvements along Jeff Davis Highway and in neighborhoods, as well as developing a trail system to access the James River; creating programs to help residents access well-paying jobs, and addressing potential impacts from new and existing businesses and industries; encouraging neighborhood-friendly and high-quality commercial development; and creating a new downtown to be the center of community activity. A meeting was held May 10 to get input from the community about the draft. The initial comment period ends June 4. Staff will post a summary of all comments online, and there will be additional opportunities to comment on the plan at public hearings as they are scheduled.
