James City County has a new committee looking toward future investments

A new committee has formed in James City County that will create a viable investment strategy for the community.

On Saturday, members of the new Strategic Investment Area Committee met to decide on a meeting calendar, which is now posted on the county website, according to a news release from the county. 

The Strategic Investment Area Committee was created to analyze the viability of making strategic investment areas in James City County. The committee will further identify the advantages of these areas. 

The committee will present their findings in a joint meeting with the Economic Development Authority and the Board of Supervisors in October.

The new committee is a subcommittee of the Economic Development Authority and is comprised of four members from the EDA.

The EDA is a board comprised of seven volunteers that help to comply with the goals and objectives set forth by the county’s comprehensive plan. It also advised the Board of Supervisors of potential locations for facilities.

Christopher Johnson, director of Economic Development for the county, did not immediately respond for comment.
