82% Grasp Land Use

82% of voters understand that Virginia Beach's traditional land use patterns aren't sustainable in the long term. 17% thought they were. As has been said, Virginia Beach was built on cheap land and cheap gas. With both gone, we have to rethink how we do both land planning and transportation.

The new poll question comes out of last week's RAC saga: how many traffic lanes for 32nd Street? Four is infinitely more desirable for traffic flow, while it's argued three would aid urban land redevelopment.
