Public Meeting on Community Revitalization Guidelines to be Held Feb. 23

Residents Can Attend In-Person or Virtually

Friday, February 11, 2022

​A public meeting to gather input from the community to develop a guide for commercial and neighborhood area enhancement and flood mitigation strategies takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 23, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Meyera E. Oberndorff Central Library, 4100 Virginia Beach Blvd.

The Community Revitalization Guidelines will be developed to consider environmental sustainability and the overall health, safety, and welfare of the community. It will also explore ways to improve accessibility, connectivity, and opportunities for residents to live, work, and play in the City. Developers plan to use Bow Creek as the primary study area to create the guidelines, then adapt them to other areas of the city.

The Virginia Beach Department of Planning and Community Development, in partnership with consultant Work Program Architects (WPA), will host the meeting to gather community input and recruit volunteers to serve on focus groups to help develop various components of the guidelines. It will allow for in-person and virtual audiences.
