Welcome to the Town of Jamestown, NC


Whether you already call Jamestown home, or are relocating or visiting, you will find that Jamestown is rich with history and small town charm.

Founded in 1816 and named for Quaker James Mendenhall, Jamestown is nestled within minutes of the bustling Triad. Our quaint restaurants, desirable shops, welcoming neighborhoods, and involved citizens make our town one of the South’s gems. The Town is a full service community that consists of approximately 3.0 square miles with a growing population located in southwestern Guilford County. Here you will find the charm of a community full of friendly faces and a helping hand, complimented by the amenities that a larger city has to offer.

A strong sense of community, quality of life, neighborhood schools, parks (Jamestown Park and Golf Course ,Wrenn Miller Park, Gibson Park, and Ragsdale Family Y) and proximity to major employers are some of the reasons why many have chosen to call Jamestown home.

Thanks to our community’s dedication to preservation and restoration and our ever-expanding pedestrian walkways, Jamestown’s distinctive curbside appeal ensures that generations to come will enjoy walking with history.

Jamestown is known for protecting and enhancing our natural, cultural and historic resources, and is home to many treasured historical sites, including the Mendenhall Plantation and Jamestown Public Library, which is the neoclassical centerpiece of Main Street. Visit Town Hall at 301 E. Main Street.

March 2014 Ice Storm

 

The Town of Jamestown has relaxed its yard waste requirements through the end of March so citizens may place tree debris at the curb in neat piles of no more than 8 feet in length. Please separate limb piles to make loading faster and easier for town crews.

Don’t block roadway access with vehicles and tree debris, especially in cul-de-sacs, that limit access of emergency and town vehicles. Don’t mix tree and yard waste with trash and other debris like siding, shingles, or other demolition debris. Place yard waste in separate piles at the curb in an area clear from overhead wires, trees/tree limbs, utility boxes/transformers and mailboxes. If tree material is too large or heavy for the town equipment to collect, the owner will be notified to hire a contractor to remove it.

When hiring contractors to perform any yard or construction work, they are responsible for removing any waste or debris. Contractors cutting and trimming trees and shrubs are responsible for removing all tree trunks, stumps and limbs. Be sure to have this debris removal included in the price quote for the job.

The Town will be collecting tree material over the next several weeks. Collection will be scheduled more frequently than the regular Wednesday and Thursday yard waste collection schedule. Your continued patience with town crews is appreciated.

Water Quality Preventative

Maintenance Program

In a continuing effort to improve water quality, the following water utilities: Archdale, Burlington, Greensboro, High Point, Jamestown, Randleman, Reidsville, Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority and their municipal water customers will conduct a routine water quality preventative maintenance program beginning April 14 and ending May 11.

This process will involve a temporary switch from present chloramines to chlorine in order to optimize water quality in our distribution systems. The process change is strongly recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the state to preserve water quality by ensuring persistent disinfection levels exist in the distribution system.

In the summer of 2011, water utilities changed their disinfection process for drinking water from chlorination to chloramination. The conversion was implemented to ensure the utilities met new water quality regulations. The new regulations placed more stringent standards on drinking water quality.

Chloraminated and chlorinated water is safe for everyday use, however three groups should take special precautions when using chloraminated water: kidney dialysis patients, fish, pond, and amphibian owners, and specialized businesses.
