The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation is seeking input from local residents on long-range planning for the James River State Park. The News & Advance reports, the DCR is required by the state to view and update the master plans every five years for all 36 state parks managed by the department. According to the article, the James River State Park master plan was created in 1998. This will be the second time it is revised. Representatives with DCR will present proposed revisions to the department’s master plan at a public meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. March 13 at the park’s visitor center in Gladstone.
