SpeakUp VB: Share Your Thoughts on Two-Year Focused Action Plan

City Council invites residents to provide input into policy development and decision making.
Focused Action Plan

When it comes to policy development and decision making, Virginia Beach City Council wants to hear from residents on what they believe City Council’s focus should be.

During the City Council retreat in August, council members were invited to identify and share up to seven priorities, which were then consolidated into individual themes such as budget, affordable housing, public safety, flood protection parks and recreation, mental health and more. These themes and priorities will shape the focused action plan, which will outline where the city manager and staff will focus their efforts. Before the plan is finalized, the City Council has requested resident input.

Residents are encouraged and invited to share their input on how much focus each theme should receive by completing a brief survey online at, now through Sept. 18. In addition, residents can share what success looks like for the areas they marked as a high priority.

The resident rankings and comments gathered through the survey will be provided to the City Council prior to finalizing the FY24-26 focused area plan. To learn more, visit
