City Encourages Community to Help Shape the Future of Lynnhaven SGA At Second Round of Public Meetings Oct. 5-6

Monday, September 26, 2011

The City of Virginia Beach invites the public to a second round of meetings that are integral to developing a master plan for the Lynnhaven Strategic Growth Area (SGA), one of eight urban SGAs identified in the city’s Comprehensive Plan.  As part of a weeklong design charette, the public is invited to an open house on Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., to view the work in progress and to talk with the design team as it explores various future urban design scenarios for the SGA.  The open house will be in the pavilion at London Bridge Baptist Church, 2460 Potters Road.  A public meeting is also planned for Thursday, Oct. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the church gymnasium.


In early September, the City of Virginia Beach held the first round of public meetings to receive broad public input on the SGA’s strengths, weaknesses and opportunities.  These meetings were facilitated by Urban Design Associates and resulted in a set of draft design principles and potential boundary expansions for the Lynnhaven SGA.  The purpose of the October design charette is to refine these principles into future design alternatives for the SGA and obtain more specific public input.
