In the works since August ‘20, view Press Release, VB Works is new system to alert COVB of issues in your neighborhood.
We’ve been curious since last Thursday when apparently the switch from SeeClickFix was made.
Questions we have include if SeeClickFix issues will migrate to new system or if the data is gone. Do SeeClickFix accounts get migrated to new VB Works and if custom maps & automated alerts for certain locations can be customized. We’ll of course let you know when we know.

Police Detectives are circulating the following flyer in hopes to find information regarding a recent shootout that took place early Sunday morning February 28th at 4504 Ocean View Ave. If you have any information, you are asked to contact Detective Pittman, email@example.com
Summary: On 02/28/21, at approximately 0538 hours, an unknown type of sedan (possible Toyota Celica) occupied by at least two suspects pictured below appeared to stage outside of a party located at 4504 Oceanview Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA. That vehicle moved slowly westbound appearing to have shots come out the passenger side before driving away being shot at by at least two shooters in the front yard of 4504 Oceanview. The sedan stops at Fentress/Oceanview, driver gets out firing one shot at the direction of 4504 Oceanview; the passenger gets out firing multiple shots in the same direction. Another vehicle, Jeep SUV black in color, comes from the direction of the firing of gunfire to turn off into a parking lot at Fentress/Oceanview. The driver gets out of the black Jeep (pictured below, appears female) and switches to passenger side of vehicle. The Jeep then goes back to the direction of 4504 Oceanview Avenue. Please let Detective Pittman know of any information or identification related to this incident and/or pictures below.
The Planning Commission will be voting at their Wed. March 10th meeting to adopt a proposed ordinance change to Short Term Rentals. The meeting will be held at Noon Wednesday in the VB Convention Center. The Commission will recommend that Short Term Rentals(STR) be allowed in a Cape Story by the Sea overlay district that includes a section of the Cape Story neighborhood north of Shore Drive between First Landing State Park and the Food Lion shopping Center. See the image below for the supported overlay district.
All STRs outside of overlay districts will be prohibited in the future if this ordinance is approved. So that will make Cape Story’s overlay one of only 3 areas in the City that will continue to allow STRs for the future. The Bayfront Advisory Commission, Shore Drive Community Coalition and Cape Story by the Sea Civic Association have all voted to oppose STR overlays. So it appears that the Planning Commission and City Council are ignoring the residents and attempting to set up a process that will be detrimental to neighborhood communities.
Anyone opposed to the proposed STR overlay district in the Shore Drive neighborhood is asked to register to speak against the ordinance at the Wednesday meeting. You can register to speak in person or virtually at the following link. In-person set up will be limited and socially distanced, so virtual is probably the best option if you plan to speak.
