City Council Was Correct On Harmony

While they may be taking heat from the Point O'View Civic League over it, the Virginia Beach City Council was right to approve a proposal by Harmony Investments to build apartments just off of Greenwich Road.

The key factor here: the Newtown Strategic Growth Area (SGA) is one of the few SGA unencumbered by AICUZ regulations, making it prime for residential redevelopment. (Newtown SGA Plan Rollout Meeting, 3/27/10). Multifamily residential dovetails nicely with exactly what's envisioned for the area.

I'm going to assume your house is NOT one of the ones that now have apartment dwellers with a full eye view into the backyard of those that were living on the other side of the railroad tracks from the new complex. I'm fairly certain council members would have not voted for that if it were in their backyard.
