Thursday night’s Ocean Park Civic League meeting welcomed several guests and offered neighbors the chance to visit and also ask questions of the speakers. City Council District 9 Candidate TJ Morgan introduced himself and followed up with a question period. Delceno Miles is the new City Council Member filling Louis Jones’ seat. She introduced herself and talked about her priorities for the next months. Residents also had questions for her. One question regarded a land purchase by the McLesky company that will be coming before the city council. Council Member Miles gave her assurance that she would pay close attention to the details forthcoming in the City Council Friday Packet and provide followup. Residents also voiced concerns about long time lack of promised infrastructure improvements in Ocean Park. Ms. Miles said she was committed to listening and looking into all concerns.
Several issues were addressed in the business portion of the meeting: the Lynnhaven Wharf/Crab Creek Dredge Transfer Station changes proposed by the city and the suggested operating parameters we support , Lynnhaven Boat Ramp Safety Issues and Ocean Park beach access plans.

The Thursday meeting was also broadcast over Zoom with enhanced audio and a different video strategy. We are happy to report that folks listening in via Zoom saw and heard a big improvement! Coming in person is still best but it’s certainly a great alternative if you want the latest but can’t get to the meeting. Southside OPCL Board rep Brian Snyder followed the Thursday meeting on Zoom: “Thanks for offering the option to listen to the OPCL meeting through Zoom. With our young children, it’s not easy to attend in person but glad to have the Zoom option for updates on Civic League activities.”
City Council Member John Moss, incumbent for District 9, and School Board incumbent for District 9 Carolyn Weems have been invited to the October 6th Ocean Park Civic League meeting which will be held at the Brock Center.
