“At our August monthly meeting of the Bayfront Advisory Commission, we discussed your upcoming consideration of the Westminster Canterbury expansion and determined it important to bring to your attention illustrations and descriptions of “Setbacks and Massing””

Letter Bayfront Advisory Committee (BAC) sent to City Council about the WCCB enormous 22 story “iconic” building proposal & campus expansion.

Dear Mayor Dyer and City Council Members,

At our August monthly meeting of the Bayfront Advisory Commission, we discussed your upcoming consideration of the Westminster Canterbury expansion and determined it important to bring to your attention illustrations and descriptions of “Setbacks and Massing” on Page 111 of the Shore Drive Corridor Plan.

Specifically, at the bottom of the page, it depicts “Encouraged” and “Not Encouraged” images of building massing and relationships.

The adjoining text states:

“Low and moderate buildings in height should be encouraged throughout the corridor. Rationale: Building in moderate height may better reflect the residential character and neighborhood scale of the corridor.”

The Shore Drive Corridor Plan was adopted by the City Council of Virginia Beach on March 28, 2000.

A copy of Page 111 of the Shore Drive Corridor Plan is attached for your reference.

Respectfully,
Phillip A Davenport
Chairman
Bayfront Advisory Commission

Emphasis ours.
