A few reminders from Waste Management as you clean up your yards:

Our yard waste crews and boom operators spent a large part of yesterday working to get yard debris up in those low-lying areas along the Lynnhaven.

A few reminders- Regulations are not being lifted but we are willing to relax them to allow for residents to clear their yards. This means - make the most use of the two pile limit. Limbs cannot exceed 4 feet in length but we are able to utilize our boom trucks for piles higher than 4 feet. We'd prefer one or two large piles over multiple tiny piles. If limbs are small enough to go in your trash cart, then bag them and place them in there. Just make sure the lid closes.

A helpful reminder of yard debris guidelines from Waste Management:

With service to 126,000 homes in Virginia Beach, our yard waste crews service their routes almost entirely by hand! In a world of automation, manual collection of bagged grass/leaves and woody piles is still the best method. Help our crews by ensuring that your yard debris is within the permitted guidelines. If you ever have a question about this service, just give our office a call at 385-4650 or email us at [email protected]

According to the North American Deck and Railing Association, millions of decks in the U.S. are past their useful life. Regular inspections of these structures are especially important as they are often built with materials that weather and deteriorate over time and frequent use. Code Enforcement recommends residents have these structures inspected regularly by a licensed professional (e.g. certified home inspector, deck builder, general contractor or engineer). Resources are also available to help property owners with proper maintenance and basic safety checks. However, the only way to certify if these structures are safe is to hire a licensed professional.

Pool owners have special responsibilities to help ensure a safe environment by complying with state and city codes intended to prevent children from accessing swimming pools. An effective pool barrier prevents children from going over, under or through the barrier, and keeps them from accessing the pool when supervising adults are not present. There are specific requirements that address in-ground and above-ground pools, and the type and size of safety barriers. Having effective safety barriers in place also applies to hot tubs and spas.

This , Housing & Neighborhood Preservation is recognizing our awesome volunteers and the role they play “on the road to home.” Meet Lynn, one of our Housing Resource Center (HRC) volunteers who wears many different hats.

Lynn had recently retired and became interested in volunteering after reading an article on the Point-in-Time (PIT) Count. Since volunteering as a PIT surveyor in 2019, she has served as a front desk ambassador and dining hall and day services attendant and prepared food bags during COVID. Lynn also led the Thanksgiving meal service for HRC shelter residents, during which she observed one of our guests break down crying upon being seated at a placemat made by children that said, “God Loves You.” This moment was one of her most rewarding experiences as a volunteer.

To someone who has never volunteered or is considering it, Lynn says to give it a try! “I think you will find it rewarding and not difficult. I guarantee you will feel appreciated!”

We are grateful for Lynn and all of our volunteers! Thank you for your commitment to serving your community and helping people in need.

Why is fair housing important?

Where you live isn’t just about the kind of house you live in. Where you live determines the schools your children attend, the jobs that are available, how long your commute is or whether there is public transportation. The convenience of grocery stores, shopping centers, medical care and other services also depend on where you live.

When housing choices are limited by discriminatory housing practices and policies, communities and individuals are denied opportunities for growth.

This , Housing & Neighborhood Preservation is recognizing our awesome volunteers and the role they play “on the road to home.” Meet Jennifer, one of our original Housing Resource Center (HRC) volunteers!

Jennifer was involved in the early planning of the HRC and has been volunteering with us since the facility opened in 2018. As an ambassador, she has greeted and escorted guests and clients throughout the facility and worked with HRC providers to develop a mail system. Jennifer currently volunteers with the BEACH Faith in Action office as a manager of Charity Tracker. In this role, she has been extremely helpful in keeping our faith-based, nonprofit and government partners updated on community resources and programs to connect people in need to assistance.

One of her favorite parts about volunteering at the HRC is seeing long-time friends get into housing!

Thank you, Jennifer, and all of our volunteers for your commitment! Your service continues to make an impact in the community and for those on their journey from homelessness to housing.

Any idea when "The City" will spray/fog for mosquitoes?
YouSuck!
When one is homeless and sleeps in their vehicle what are some of the safest areas to park and sleep??
Why was Virginia Beach Housing Resource Center closed for part of today?
Jesus Christ is and will always be my praise...
Does Virginia have any clearing- house keeping photos and names of homeless and transient individuals?
I noticed the land on the southeast corner of Bridneck and 19th Street is being clear-cut for a Sports Center. The project sounds positive but the location deeply troubles me. There are so few undeveloped areas left near the Oceanfront and I hate to see our big native trees/forests being destroyed when there are many existing properties that desperately need RE-development. Please no more destruction of untouched land. Let's use and improve land that's already been bulldozed. The destruction of forest land will only contribute to habitat loss for native birds and other animals (i.e. foxes) that keep our insect and rodent populations in check (we know tickbourne diseases such as Lyme are on the rise and will likely increase at an alarming rate). And paving over forest land leads to hotter temperatures around our city. Climate change is no joke and our city needs to make wiser choices accordingly.
I want to volunteer to make videos of your beautiful parks and programs like this. I love the humanity of it and the environmental aspects of it. Thanks.
I had the pleasure of touring the soon to be opened HRC today and I must say I was completely surprised and impressed. To see the benefits this facility will provide to the homeless population I believe will be life changing. It warms my heart to know the people I see often, sometimes every day, on the side of the street will have a place to go. I can now be part of the change and actually know I'm helping to make a difference, if I just tell one person where to go to get help and they ACTUALLY ARE HELPED.
Looking for a 3 month(ish) lease June 12th - September 17th in Virginia Beach(23451). Does anyone have anything or any suggestions of apartment complexes that do 3 month leases? PLEASE let me know if you do, it would be much appreciated!!
