Closing Date Approaching for Rudee Loop Survey

Reminder: Two Open Houses Scheduled

​The City has been collecting input from residents through a SpeakUp VB survey since November 2022 on the conceptual proposals received in response to a Request for Information and Ideas for Rudee Loop. The survey is scheduled to close at 11:59 p.m. this Sunday, Jan. 29. Additionally, open houses will be conducted tomorrow and the following Tuesday where residents can engage in person to provide their comments.

The City has partnered with Work Program Architects (WPA) to conduct community engagement as Virginia Beach works to establish a plan for Rudee Loop. WPA has been engaging with residents and stakeholder groups to obtain input on their vision of what Rudee Loop could be. Upon completion of the community outreach, the results will be analyzed and briefed to City Council.

Residents can provide their feedback through The SpeakUp VB survey – Reimagining Rudee Loop.

There are two options to participate in the survey:

  • Complete the survey online
  • Call Nancy Bloom at (757) 385-6279 and request that a hard copy of the survey be sent via email, complete the survey, and return to Ms. Bloom, ensuring receipt prior to the close of the survey.

Additional information regarding Rudee Loop may be found at www.VBgov.com/RudeeLoop.

For those who prefer to provide their input in person, there will be two opportunities to do so:

  • Friday, Jan. 27, 2023, from 6:30 a.m. until early afternoon at Rudee Loop
    (Rain date is same location and time on Friday, Feb. 3)
  • Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Kempsville Recreation Center, 800 Monmouth Lane

Rudee Loop, situated at the south end of the Resort Area adjacent to Rudee Inlet, is one of the most desirable plots of undeveloped land on the eastern seaboard. During the 2019 Resort Area Strategic Action Plan update, residents identified Rudee Loop as a top priority for green space.

In May 2022, the City of Virginia Beach and the Virginia Beach Development Authority issued an RFII – a Request for Information and Ideas – on how the parcels owned by the City and the VBDA (6.2 Acres) might be developed. Four proposals were received and briefed to City Council. The council requested that the public have an opportunity to provide their input and comment on the conceptual proposals.
