​Virginia Beach to Host Public Meeting To Review Draft Complete Streets Policy

Friday, August 29, 2014

The public is invited to review and discuss the city’s draft Complete Streets Policy on Thursday, Sept. 18, at 6 p.m. at the Renaissance Academy, 5100 Cleveland St.

The purpose of the Complete Streets Policy is to improve the Virginia Beach transportation system by providing safe, attractive travel for all users through a system of connected transportation choices designed in harmony with adjacent land uses. The city policy will be formally initiated by an administrative directive signed by city departments involved in road planning and construction. 

At this meeting, residents and business owners can comment on the proposed policy and discuss it with city staff.

Staff has been developing the Complete Streets Policy for the past 18 months. It was initiated by a Smart Growth America technical assistance grant, which funded public and staff workshops in spring 2013.
