Virginia Beach City Council to Hear Public Comment on Proposed Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Plan
Virginia Beach City Council invites interested members of the public to comment on all aspects of the proposed Virginia Beach Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Plan (the Plan) at its regular formal session on Tuesday, September 9. The Plan is a report of recommendations to preserve, renew and enhance the homes and neighborhoods in Virginia Beach and to enhance neighborhood character.
Developed by the Planning Commission Subcommittee on Preservation, the Plan provides recommendations that address a collaborative process for neighborhood preservation and improvement on an ongoing, sustainable basis. It also addresses the types of tools that could be implemented to promote and provide incentives for the voluntary improvement of housing.
The full Plan can be found on the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation’s Web page at http://www.VBgov.com/housing, by selecting “Virginia Beach Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Plan” under “Hot Topics.”
City Council will vote on whether or not to adopt the Virginia Beach Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Plan on September 23.
