New Business –
Bay Beach Grooming – Mark Johnson, City Public Works, is responsible for scheduling. He can be reached at 385-1470 or MAJohnso@vbgov.com Believe it or not, but the following paragraph was part of the 2002 Beach Management Plan (last plan the City created) and still no dedicated funding stream.
“Routine beach grooming is limited to the Resort Area. We recommend its expansion to all beaches. All non-resort area beaches should be groomed at least weekly during the summer months, immediately prior to summer holidays, and after major storm events to remove seaweed, storm debris and reshape the beach. To accomplish this objective, additional resources need to be created or contracted for non-resort area beaches.”
Marine Enforcement Contact – Call the Virginia Marine Police at (800) 541-4646 to enforce boating safety laws, respond to emergency calls, check recreational fishing licenses, inspecting commercial fishermen for compliance, investigating boating accidents and conduct educational programs
Shore Drive to Oceanfront Trolley Loop – Final results of survey have been posted on www.sdcc.info and sent to Bayfront Advisory Committee, City Staff and Hampton Roads Transit. Thank you to all that took the time to voice your opinions.
Community Concerns – Does your neighborhood/condo have any issues that have come up that need help or may be a warning to others?
