      Updates due for Chippokes Plantation master plan
      (RICHMOND, Va.) - The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation
      (DCR) hosts a public meeting on proposed amendments to the Chippokes
      Plantation State Park master plan:

      As the managing agency for Virginia State Parks, DCR drafts and executes
      master plans for each of Virginia's 35 state parks.

      At the March 23 meeting, DCR recreation planners will explain proposed
      amendments to the Chippokes Plantation master plan and receive input

      Last year, Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry County expanded by
      363 acres with the addition of Walnut Valley Farm. Proposed changes to
      the parks master plan will facilitate public access and preservation on
      the farm, which includes a circa-1785 farmhouse and slave quarters.

      Other proposed changes include the relocation of the parks maintenance
      area and a change in the proposed site for the Chippokes Plantation Farm
      Foundation's Farm and Forestry Center
