A friendly reminder in case you've missed the news: this coming Friday and Saturday the annual Virginia Beach City Council Retreat is scheduled. It will be August 22 & 23 in the conference room of the Department of Economic Development (DED) on the 10th Floor of the main Town Center office tower. It's slated to run from 8:30-5 each day.
I've been to every Council Retreat since 2002 and certainly don't plan to miss this one. Watch this blog for coverage.
Yes, the Retreat is open to the general public to observe, but their is no formal public comment session. If you have any concerns, e-mail them to Council this week. The pace is very slow, but you get to see each Councilman run the full spread of issues. It's like a NFL conference championship game for we political junkies. An issue being looked at favorably at Retreat much enhances it's probability for Council passage during the coming year.
