5/31 Memorial Planning Committee
On Monday, the Council-appointed 5/31 Memorial Committee took place from 3-9 p.m., at The HIVE, 4636 Columbus St., Suite 100, Virginia Beach. The meeting was open to the public and the live stream recording is available. On Tuesday, July 12, committee members attended the City Council informal session to give an update on their work. The council session began at 1 p.m. at City Council Chambers, 2403 Courthouse Drive, Building 3, Virginia Beach. The committee recommended to Council a site (see slide 20) that sits on the corner of Nimmo Pkwy and Princess Anne Road near Building 30, which is City-owned property. Also that the only item Council approved today was the suggested timeline for next steps, and that a resolution will have to be passed to designate the land location and approve any expenses affiliated with next steps. Immediately following the group's presentation, committee members adjourned to Building 19, Training Room A (2416 Courthouse Dr., Virginia Beach) to allow members to reflect on the process they have participated in to date. That gathering had no formal agenda, but was a period of conversation among committee members with the Kearns & West facilitators.
