September 14 and 16
Virginia Beach was chosen by the American Institute of Architects to be one of ten cities to participate in their Communities by Design program for 2009. The AIA has put together a team of experts from across the country to provide guidance to us on planning for a more sustainable future---economic, physical, social and environmental sustainablility. Our entire team will be here during the third week of September. During their visit, there will be two exciting opportunities for citizens to get involved.
Monday, Sept. 14, 6:30-8:00, Convention Center
Town Hall Meeting to gather ideas from the public. What is your
vision of the future Virginia Beach?
Wednesday, Sept. 16, 6:30-8:00, Convention Center
The team will be reporting the highlights of their report to the City.
What advice do they have for us? Where do they see Virginia
Beach in 10 years, 20 years, 50 year? What are the first steps?
Mark your calendars now and try to come both evenings. It promises to be very interesting.
