HAMPTON ROADS REGION – NORFOLK AND VIRGINIA BEACH JOINT LAND USE STUDY AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC COMMENT
CHESAPEAKE, VA (MAY 30, 2019) – The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) has issued the draft Hampton Roads Region – Norfolk and Virginia Beach Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) for public review and comment. The public review period will be open through June 28, 2019. Public meetings are being scheduled for mid-June, with announcements to be made once they have been scheduled.
The Norfolk and Virginia Beach JLUS is the result of a cooperative planning process between Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and four U.S. Navy Installations in Hampton Roads: Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, Naval Air Station Oceana, Naval Station Norfolk, and Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads. The study specifically considers how flooding and sea level rise affect community assets and infrastructure and how those effects impact military operations and readiness in Hampton Roads. The study identifies several projects and policies that the cities can pursue to mitigate the adverse impacts of flooding and sea level rise on Navy operations.
The draft study is available for download via the HRPDC’s website at https://www.hrpdcva.gov/departments/joint-land-use-studies/norfolk-va-beach-joint-land-use-study/.
The public is invited to provide comments by June 28, 2019.
