Arena Town Hall Meeting to Be Held Dec. 18

Thursday, December 06, 2012

The newly formed Citizen Communications Committee for the proposed arena project will hold a public Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 18, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Virginia Beach Convention Center to gather input from citizens.  The Convention Center is at 1000 19th St.  The meeting will be in Suite 1.


The purpose of the meeting is to assess residents’ opinions about the possibility of building a sports and entertainment facility near the Oceanfront.


“We want to find out what citizens think about the potential for an arena that would attract major sports events and top-level entertainment to Virginia Beach,” said Committee Chair Linwood Branch.  “This is the first in a series of conversations we will have with residents about this project.”


During the meeting, participants will receive a presentation about the project and will be asked a series of questions to elicit their input.  The feedback will then be provided to City Council.
