In October 2012, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission began a partnership with Old Dominion University and Virginia Sea Grant to provide a forum for local government staff to hear from academic researchers and independent experts on how to prepare for and adapt to rising seas. On Wednesday, October 2, this partnership will host speakers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science at a public town hall meeting in Virginia Beach. Residents from all of Hampton Roads are welcome to attend to hear from Ms. Kelly Burks-Copes, U.S. Army Research and Development Center, and Ms. Marcia Berman, Center for Coastal Resources Management. The meeting will be held at the Advanced Technology Center Theater at 1800 College Crescent, Virginia Beach, beginning at 6:30pm.
