What is the CRG and why do we need it?
Along with many other major cities, Virginia Beach is experiencing changing demographics, shifting residential and retail market preferences, environmental changes, and technological advances. These changes are impacting the form and function of our major commercial shopping centers and corridors. Neighboring residential communities are present along these major commercial areas and are also impacted by these changes. These impacts warrants strategic plan and action by us to keep our major commercial shopping areas beautiful and functional, while maintaining the stability of our neighborhoods.
