Folks/Bradford-Chubb Project Followers:
The City of Virginia Beach’s Public Works – Stormwater Engineering has scheduled a virtual open house meeting for the Lake Bradford / Chubb Lake (CIP 7-053) project on Thursday, November 12, 2020 between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. For information to join the meeting virtually, please visit the project website: http://www.vbgov.com/LakeBradford.
Due to the Covid-19 public health crisis this meeting will not be held in-person and instead we will utilize a virtual platform to host this meeting and continue providing project updates and introduce the upcoming construction projects.
As most of you know, we held an open house/public meeting in November 2019 to hear from residents in the area regarding their flooding concerns and to assist in developing a program of drainage improvements. We received valuable input and feedback from the community and are looking forward to our continued coordination.
Since we met last November, the City and RK&K have made progress on the drainage study and develop a concept of improvements to help mitigate flooding. This concept requires further analysis and the drainage study is anticipated to be completed by the end of next summer.
This will be an informal open house public meeting and will begin with a 30 minute presentation providing an update on the Lake Bradford/Chubb Lake Drainage Study as well as introduce the upcoming Lake Pleasure House Outfall and Lake Bradford Dredging construction projects. Public Works representatives from the City of Virginia Beach will be available to answer questions via the virtual platform following the presentation.
After the presentation, we request attendees complete an online survey to provide feedback on the presentation as well as any comments or concerns for the upcoming construction projects. A link to this online survey will be provided on the project website. Our previous survey was very successful and provided valuable input on flooding concerns in the area.
Again, we want to thank each and every one of you who have participated in some way: attending the meeting, marking maps, taking the survey, emailing us your thoughts and comments, and all the other ways you have contributed. We feel strongly that this can be a very successful project with your suggestions and feedback.
If you have any pictures of flooding, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the location, date, and time the picture was taken.
Again, thank you for your participation in this project and we look forward to continue working with all of you. Please stay safe during this difficult time.
