Members of the The Club at Kingsmill received the announcement below of Xanterra Kingsmill, LLC’s intent to withdraw its master plan amendment for action before James City County. Here is the link to the master plan amendment details from the JCC Planning Commission’s June 4, 2014 agenda. It was scheduled for the Board of Supervisors’ December 9 meeting.
Dear Members of The Club at Kingsmill,
In an effort to keep our members updated on news and information as it relates to the Resort and the Kingsmill community in general, please be advised that Xanterra Kingsmill, LLC ("Xanterra"), the owner of Kingsmill Resort, intends to withdraw its master plan amendment application in Case No. Z-0002-2014/MP-0002-2014 currently pending before James City County. Given the controversy surrounding the application related to new development within the Kingsmill community, Xanterra has decided to withdraw the application at this time in order to analyze ways in which the application may be modified to more fully address various issues and concerns raised by certain County personnel and Kingsmill residents to date. As part of this analysis, Xanterra will consider development alternatives as they relate to existing by right development parcels within Kingsmill in order to possibly shift some development activity to sites that would not require the level of approval associated with the current application. It is Xanterra’s hope that these efforts will ultimately lead to the ability to submit a revised land use application that is more warmly received by the County and all other stakeholders within the Kingsmill community.
