Redevelopment Wins Over Traffic Flow

I never saw one on this scale coming. 72% voted to design 32nd Street with three lanes for traffic, then wider sidewalks to aid urban redevelopment. 27% supported four lanes of traffic for better vehicle flow.

The new question is one what to do with Virginia Beach's Property Tax rate. City Assessor Jerry Banagan's preliminary report is that assessments will go down 5% in 2010. Should City Council raise the rate to stay revenue neutral, hold at 89 cents, cut below 89 cents, or raise above 91 cents?
