According to the Virginia Gazette, James City County could increase its conservation program by 27 percent next week with the purchase of a 158-acre farm off Bush Neck Road. If approved by the Board of Supervisors, the county would be able to limit development on the land, and owners David and Stephanie Allen would retain ownership. This $1.3 million purchase would add to the existing 583 acres already held by the county. The land being in question is currently a farm that offers usable land and scenic views. The county still has $14 million available for borrowing to acquire land, but as of now there are no plans to use it.
