James River Park Master Plan

This is our FY 2018 priority!

In order to protect the Park for future generations and to create a long-range unified vision moving forward, the FOJRP Board is currently underwriting the development of a 10-year Park Master Plan. This $250,000 plan, facilitated by Hargreaves and VHB, will be developed with the input from different interest groups, including the surrounding neighborhoods and Park users. Once developed the plan will establish a work plan for the Park by clearly identifying tangible goals and ways to facilitate implementation. It will become the Park’s guiding document addressing issues such as natural and cultural resource management.

Make a Gift

As the Park’s most prominent advocacy group FOJRP has taken on the challenge of raising the $250,000 needed to develop this plan. This is the primary focus of our fundraising efforts for 2018. After providing the lead gift of $50,000, we are seeking 5-8 gifts averaging $25,000 to $50,000. Your donation at this level establishes you as a foundational supporter and you will be recognized throughout the process at all public meetings and, again once the Master Plan is completed, on a permanent donation wall as foundational supporters.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in making a gift at this level, please contact, Katherine Mitchell, FOJRP Board Vice President and Chair of the Master Plan Task Force at 804-920-5912. Or send us an email with your contact information and a board member will be in touch.
