The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation was established in 2006 as a public-private partnership to implement the Jamestown Urban Design plan to assist the economic revitalization of our region. In 2010, we expanded our work to include neighborhood revitalization by commissioning and implementing  the City of Jamestown: A Livable Community study. You can learn more about these studies and their updates in our Resources section. The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation has adopted the following mission, vision, and values:
