Did you know?
Thanks to Lynnhaven River NOW, 38% of the Lynnhaven River is now open for shellfish harvesting, up from only 1% in 2004.  Got an idea for “Did you know?” Send it to
Change in Agenda:

Jones and Wood won’t be there.

Vice Mayor Jones and City Councilman Wood will not be at the March SDCC meeting.  They were scheduled to appear to discuss the City Manager’s proposed 2011-2012 budget.  Unfortunately, the proposed budget will not be presented to City Council until March 30.  Our representatives are now scheduled to come to the April 26 meeting.  They will vote the budget on May 11.

The Good News is…

The March meeting will feature two other hot topics.  Wayne Wilcox, in charge of Bikes and Trails for the City, Bruce Drees, Advocate for the Tidewater Bicycle Association, June McDaniels, formerly of Bayfront Advisory Committee and panelist on the Shore Drive Safety Initiative ‘09, will participate in an outline of what is in store with regard to bikes and pedestrians for Shore Drive Improvements:  what is needed, what is planned, and what you would like to see.  A cameo appearance by Councilman Bill DeSteph is also expected.

It’s a Double-Header!

In addition, the City will be sending a representative to report on the progress of replacing damaged and destroyed beach accesses now that the sand replenishment is completed.

Work and play on the same day!  Mark your calendars!

First Landing State Park is having a huge volunteer tree-planting on April 24 and would really like to have support from the surrounding neighborhoods.  Please contact to sign up.
That’s the work part.

For the play part:  LynnhavenRiverNow is hosting their 8th Annual Oyster Roast on the same day, from 12 Noon to 3 p.m. practically on the grounds of Bayville Golf Course.  The number of tickets available is limited, so contact them soon at

Kudos to Kroger!

Kroger has withdrawn the application to locate a fuel kiosk at the Shore Drive location at this time.  Bill Barnett, of Bradford Acres, was the lead spokesperson in representing the neighborhood.  Kroger will proceed with applications to install fueling stations at other locations.

SDCC Meeting: 

7:30 p.m., March 29, Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Station (Intersection of Shore Drive and East Stratford Road)
