From Hank:

We will be discussing the Noise Ordinance at BAC next week, but there are a few things related to that that are happening prior to Thursday that I wanted to remind everyone of. There will be two public meetings about the proposed noise ordinance on Wednesday, 11/16 at Princess Anne High School. The first meeting is from 3:30pm-5:00pm, and the second meeting is 6:30-8:00pm.

Also, the online survey will close at 11:59pm on Sunday, 11/13, so if you are so inclined, please head over to: and provide your input.

From Councilman Moss:

For reference, the current noise ordinance can be found at (Select Code Library, then Virginia, then Virginia Beach; the relevant section is Chapter 23, Article II (Section 23-63 through Section 23-73 of the City Code (not the City Charter)).
This item appeared on the City Council agenda for October 18; City Council voted to defer the matter to December 6, 2022. It will appear on City Council’s agenda that day and you will have an additional opportunity to speak to the entire City Council prior to the vote on the item.
If you have any questions concerning this issue, please contact Ms. Bloom at (757) 385-6279.
