​The Beaches and Waterways Advisory Commission was tasked by City Council in August  2000 to comprehensively review and revise the 1993 Beach Management Plan.  The plan was developed with substantial input from the citizens and civic leagues of Virginia Beach, City Staff representing many different departments and the efforts of the Commission.  The Beach Management Plan was adopted by City Council on December 10, 2002.
