Beach Sand Replenishment and Access Repairs

We have received the following information via Drew Lankford, of the Department of Public Works.

From Phil Koetter:

    “We are working on repair plans for all of the City’s damaged public accesses along Chesapeake Bay.  As soon as we get our restoration plans finalized we plan on notifying the residents along the Bay so that they are aware of the plans. We hope to have the surveyor to start working on gathering data for these repairs in the next week or two.  We are working to get all accesses restored as soon as possible while also working with FEMA and VDEM on storm damage reimbursements for covered damages.

    Some property owners may want to use the same contractor for private restoration work while they are in the area.  All private work must be reviewed, approved, and receive all applicable and required permits.  This work should be coordinated through the City’s Planning Department & Permit and Inspections Division.”

From Mike Mundy:

    “More great news is that the permit modification (to do the truck haul from Maple Street dredge disposal area) that was submitted to Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC) was approved Tuesday January, 26th.”

LED Sign Ordinance Deferred

City Council was set to hear the proposed LED sign ordinance February 9, but the matter has been deferred.  A new date will be forthcoming.
