Fourth Annual Virginia Beach Historic Preservation Public Input Meeting to be Held November 27

Friday, November 09, 2012

The Virginia Beach Historic Preservation Commission will hold its Fourth Annual Public Input Meeting on November 27 at 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library.  The purpose of this meeting is to invite the general public and community groups to express their views and priorities regarding historical preservation items and opportunities under consideration by the Commission.  The results of the meeting will ultimately be shared with the Virginia Beach City Council.  

In addition to the public input and ranking process, this year’s session also includes discussion on the formation of the Virginia Beach History Council, a proposed group that would serve as a history communications network for organizations and individuals in Virginia Beach. The meeting will conclude with a presentation by Willie Graham, Curator of Architecture for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and a nationally recognized expert on scientific methods for dating of historic structures.

The Meyera E. Oberndorf Central library is located at 4100 Virginia Beach Boulevard.  The Virginia Beach Historic Preservation Commission is a City Council-appointed body that advises Council on historic issues in the city.  The Commission generally meets the first Wednesday evening of the month in various locations.  Please visit www.vbgov.com/historicpreservation for additional information about the Historic Preservation Commission.
