This will be the park’s first master plan in 50 years.

The Friends of the James River Park has succeeded in raising its goal of $250,000 to fund a new park master plan, according to reports in today’s Times-Dispatch.

The master plan will be developed by Hargreaves Associates, the group that created the downtown riverfront plan, and local firm VHB, a land development group that helped work on the T. Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge.

Public and neighborhood meetings will be held in the fall, and residents are encouraged to share their input. A schedule for the community meetings will be released in the weeks ahead.

The process to develop the master plan is expected to take nine to 12 months to complete.
