Virtual Public Meeting on Transportation and Mobility in the Resort Area to be Held Thursday, Feb. 3 at 6 p.m.

Wednesday, January 12, 2022

​The City of Virginia Beach is engaging the community to develop a comprehensive mobility plan for the Resort Area. The Resort Area Mobility Plan (RAMP) addresses all different types of transportation and strives to achieve an ideal balance by improving the quality of each transportation mode — mass transit, cycling, walking, driving, etc. — for residents, employees, beachgoers and visitors within the Resort Area.

Consultants are studying the area from Birdneck Road to the Boardwalk and from General Booth Boulevard at the Virginia Aquarium to 42nd Street.

Some of the featured recommendations include modifications to Atlantic Avenue, a supplemental transit service for the trolley, and a defined bicycle and pedestrian network.

The City is seeking public input to help develop the RAMP as a guidebook for a modern, flexible and multimodal transportation network that is safe, user-friendly and efficient. The Department of Planning and Community Development in partnership with consultant Kimley-Horn will host a virtual public information session on Thursday, Feb. 3 from 6-7 p.m.

The meeting will:

  • Describe the planning process, including how community and stakeholder participation has been reflected in the plan.
  • Introduce key recommendations.
  • Gather feedback through live polling and a facilitated Q&A.

To participate, register in advance here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. If you can't attend the webinar, it will be recorded and available to watch after Feb. 4, 2022 at VBgov.com/resortmobilityplan.
