CSBTS Civic Association General Meeting
Monday May 12th at 7:30pm in the Virginia Beach Resort Conference Hotel
Special guest speaker – Mr. Mike Shahsiah, Senior Traffic Engineer for City of VB.
Not enough parking available for company?
Too many beach tourists parking on your front lawn?
Cars parked on Shore Drive make it hard to see when you pull out from your street?
Illegal “No Parking” signs placed on your street?
Come out and hear what the City has been studying regarding these questions and more for our neighborhood. Below is the basic study premise and the interim study details can be viewed by clicking this link – Bayfront TRAFFIC STUDY REPORT
At the request of Bayfront Advisory Committee, Traffic Engineering staff has surveyed the Bayfront Communities north of Shore Drive between the Lesner Bridge and State Park, including Cape Story by the Sea community. The purpose of this parking survey was to locate the illegal no parking signs, misplaced signs, illegal encroachments, and those legal no parking signs that are no longer needed due to changes over the years in this area.
According to City Traffic Engineer, Mike Shahsiah, the shoulder paving project commencing today, Monday July 19th, should take 1 to 2 weeks to complete (Closer to 1 week without weather delays).
The project will add a 5-6 foot section of shoulder paving along the south side of Shore Drive from the sidewalk at Bloom & Beech St. to Kendall St. The existing pavement from Beech to Wake Forest (and a few other small sections) will be milled and paved. Areas without existing paving will have new pavement added. These areas are mostly between Wake Forest and Kendall. After paving is complete, both shoulders (north and south) along Shore Drive will be striped to show a 3-4 foot bike area.
Info about the group:
Name: Increase Pedestrian Safety on Shore Drive

Thank you to the 700 residents who took the time to answer the survey questions. The results are being compiled and will be posted soon.
Your input is desperately needed.
The following survey is being sponsored by the Cape Story by the Sea Civic Association (CSBTS), Cape Henry Shores Civic Association (CHSCA)and Shore Drive Community Coalition (SDCC). The survey will be used to help determine the effectiveness of the temporary speed limit reduction from 45 mph to 35 mph along Shore Drive between Great Neck Road and First Landing State Park.
Local residents and civic leagues have repeatedly requested the City over the past 5 years to reduce the speed on this stretch of road. The reduced speed will help improve safety for the 800 residents of Cape Story by the Sea and Cape Henry Shores that cross Shore Drive on foot and by vehicle without the aid of signalized intersections or marked crosswalks. A reduced speed limit will also make the road safer for Type-A bicyclists that voted this roadway as their number one most traveled route in Virginia Beach (Virginia Beach Bikes and Trails Plan 2004) by a 2 to 1 margin over the second most popular route in the City.
