Why is the Preservation of Our Homes and Neighborhoods Important?
Any city’s success and vitality depends on its homes and neighborhoods. Vibrant neighborhoods with well-maintained homes are a key part of our high quality of life.
And since almost all of the land in Virginia Beach is already developed, preserving our existing housing stock is very important if the city is to remain a "Community for a Lifetime". With half of the city’s existing housing units more than 25 years old, we must maintain and preserve our homes and neighborhoods for current and future homeowners.
Many of the city’s homes are in good repair. Proactively preserving our homes and neighborhoods will help keep them this way. If we don’t, we risk having a city with homes that are irrelevant for future generations, deteriorating and blighted homes that lead to costly repairs, and a low quality of life.
Also, each Virginia Beach neighborhood has distinct qualities that make it unique. We need to preserve these characteristics that make your neighborhood special.
