YES, you assumed right, all analog's will be replaced. My City( Leavenworth, Ks ) is going to Digital very soon & they are replacing all analogs to 800 P25 Trunked system. You will need a Digital Radio to listen to them.

New Kent County has a couple of applications for an 800 MHz trunked system. According to the emission designators, the system will be Project 25 Phase I or II.

ULS Application - PubSafty/SpecEmer/PubSaftyNtlPlan,806-817/851-862MHz,Trunked - 0006225201 - NEW KENT COUNTY 911
ULS Application - PubSafty/SpecEmer/PubSaftyNtlPlan,806-817/851-862MHz,Trunked - 0006225209 - NEW KENT COUNTY 911

I'm assuming this system will replace all of the county's VHF analog frequencies.

Makes sense since Hanover, King William, Henrico and James City counties are all on 800's. They were the oddball in the mix.

New Kent will probably use these 800 MHz frequencies to join the York/James City/Gloucester system. The FRN for the York system licenses is the same as the FRN for the New Kent licenses:

Callsigns for FCC FRN: 0004631909 (YORK, COUNTY OF)

There are also a few references on the web to New Kent thinking about joining the regional system last year:

Regional radio grid could save NK close to $10 million - New Kent – Charles City Chronicle

Additionally, while passing through New Kent yesterday on I-64, I heard what sounded like a digital transmission on one of New Kent's analog frequencies. They may already have the 800 MHz system up and be doing limited simulcasting with the VHF system.
