but such ownership shall be subject to the public’s same right of use and maintenance upon the newly created land as previously existed on the adjacent land above the mean low-water mark.

FEMA has provided an interactive, online tool that enables you to see your current and new preliminary flood hazard zone. Help using the map is available at VBgov.com/maps.
FEMA has established a 90-day comment/appeal period for Virginia Beach’s preliminary flood maps. This 90-day period began Feb. 5 and will run through May 5, 2014.
An appeal is a formal objection to proposed base flood elevations or flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) boundaries and zones, or floodways. Appeals must be based on technical data that show proposed maps to be scientifically incorrect. Anyone who makes an appeal must include the method, data and analysis used to support the claim.
It is with sadness that we speak of the recent passing of Dan Creedon, a man of boundless energy and commitment to civic and environmental issues at so many levels. Whether working at the Lynnhaven River Now oyster seeding project, guiding Shore Drive Community Coalition in its formative years, or bringing world attention to the Haitian relief effort, Dan seemed to be everywhere and involved in so much of humanity and the environment. He never slowed his pursuit of where he felt he needed to be in this world to make it a better place for humanity and a lasting renewable resource for all to find wonder. Rest in peace.
