The Town of Jamestown has contracted with a Community Planner to advocate for and work with the community to create an illustrative Master Plan and Design Guidelines for the 467 acre property between Guilford College Rd and Mackay Rd (referred to as the Johnson Property). This visioning workshop will use community inpout and feedback over several days to ensure community voices are being heard in productive and meaningful way! Sessions will be held daily from September 14 - 18. Feedback and information from each meeting will be incorporated into the Plan and presented at the following meeting, and the videos and work products from each of the meetings will be posted on this website.
Please use the registration form at the bottom of the page if you would like to attend the meetings in-person. If you cannot attend the meetings, portions of each meeting will be streamed live on the Town of Jamestown's YouTube Channel. Each day, there will be a similar online workshop experience that will closely mimic the in-person event. This online event will happen concurrently with the in-person meeting timeline. During these challenging times, staff and consultants are working hard to provide meaningful outlets for both in-person and online feedback. Please be patient as we finalize the development of the online components.
We are working hard to make sure the virtual and in-person presentation and feedback options mirror each other as closely as possible. No preregistration is needed for online participation. Each evening of the workshop will be live-streamed on the Town’s YouTube and a survey will be available for anyone to complete from after the presentation until 9 am the next day. The surveys hosted online will be the same surveys that are completed at the in-person workshop. Access to all surveys, recordings, and any additional documents will be linked daily on the Envision Jamestown Public Engagement website.
