“The City of Virginia Beach filed a petition in Virginia Beach Circuit Court today, asking the court to confirm that the public enjoys a recreation easement over Chesapeake Beach, known locally as Chic’s Beach, and that the city has the right to maintain and protect the beach. This action is a necessary precursor to any sand replenishment for Chesapeake Beach.”

Many property owners along Chesapeake Beach agree that the public has long-standing rights to use the beach across their properties. Some, however, dispute the public’s right to use and the city’s right to maintain the beach. They contend the beach is private.
