This is a bittersweet announcement for me to write. In 2001 the Shore Drive communities banded together to create an umbrella organization to share information and better represent our common issues. This organization was called the Shore Drive Community Coalition. For the past 22 years, as a collective group, we have helped guide great change to the Bayfront. However, similar to many other organizations, the past couple of years have resulted in a decline in meeting attendance and volunteer support, so the current officers have decided that it is time for SDCC fade away. The officer’s plan is to disband SDCC as a 501c4 organization and transition to an online information presence only. This plan will be discussed as part of our last general meeting. We will also be presenting donations, from our remaining SDCC funds, to our wonderful Bayfront Rescue Squads for all their hard work and support of our communities.
So please join us for this sad but important time in the history of SDCC. Take note of the 7:00pm start time. We will have a pre-meeting social starting at 7:00pm with finger foods and drinks which will give us all a chance to catch up and share stories of our amazing 22 years.

As you know, Virginia Beach and the Bayside District lost our long time serving Mr. Louis Jones recently. The citizen appointed by City Council will hold office until Dec. 31, 2022 and must reside in the Bayside District.
