Notice of public meetings.


NPS, working with the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA), is hosting two public information meetings to gather information regarding the planning for Jamestown's 400th anniversary in 2007. At Jamestown Virginia, Native Americans, Europeans and Africans came together to form the first permanent English colony in the New World and to begin to develop the society and government now known as the United States of America. The planning includes facilities, exhibits and interpretation as well as environmental compliance. The public information meetings will provide an opportunity for the interested public to provide input into our planning process.


October 3, 2000, from 1 pm-4 pm and 6 pm-9 pm Eastern Time.


Jamestown Visitor Center, Theatre 1, Jamestown Island, Colonial National Historical Park.
