Citizen Input Requested for New Draft of Oceanfront Form-Based Code and New Resort Parking Strategy

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Neighbors, property owners and business owners who have an interest in the Oceanfront resort area are invited to participate in a public meeting and workshop Thursday, Nov. 17, at 6 p.m. at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, Room 2BCD.  The meeting will include a presentation on the draft Oceanfront Form-Based Code focusing on changes made to the code since the previous draft.  We will also present the new Resort Parking Strategy, which was created in response to comments received on the previous draft of the Oceanfront Form-Based Code.  The presentations will be followed by a workshop in which citizens can ask general questions or talk to city staff about specific properties and how they may be affected.


This meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn about the latest draft of the Oceanfront Form-Based Code and the new Resort Parking Strategy and provide comments.  Community feedback will help further refine the code and the parking strategy.


For information on the Oceanfront Form-Based Code or the Resort Parking Strategy, contact Ashby Moss in the Planning Department at (757) 385-4621 or visit or
