President Mike McGinn called the meeting to order.  Because of the rain, our attendance was much lower than last year.

Old Business:

Elbow Road Expansion Project: There will be a Citizen Information Meeting held on Thursday, June 7, 2018 in the cafeteria of Glenwood Elementary School located at 2213 Round Hill Drive, Virginia Beach 23464 from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm.  This meeting will be an open forum for the public, a formal presentation will not be given.  Representatives from the City will be available to provide information to all interested citizens on the proposed Elbow Road, Phase II and the Indian River Road-Phase VII project.

Both are long-standing, multi-mile roadway re-alignment projects with federal, state and local funding.  Elbow Road-Phase IIB is the next phase of the overall Elbow Road-Phase II project, which stretches from the Princess Anne Athletic Complex entrance on Dam Neck Road to the city limit line on Elbow road, adjacent to Stumpy Lake.  Elbow Road-Phase IIB includes the first two-lanes of the ultimate four-lane divided roadway from the intersection with Margaret Drive, to the city limit line on Elbow Road adjacent to Stumpy Lake.  The proposed roadway will follow a new alignment crossing North Landing River as well as Indian River Road, creating a new signalized intersection.  These first two lanes will include bike lanes on each side plus curb and gutter, LED street lighting and a wide sidewalk along the south side.  Noise walls required for the ultimate roadway configuration will be installed on both sides of the proposed right-of-way for the phase of construction.

The Indian River Road-Phase VII project begins on the north side of the proposed Indian River and “re-aligned Elbow” intersection constructing a four-lane, divided roadway along a new alignment northward to the intersection of Indian River and Lynnhaven Parkway.  This proposed roadway section will also include bike lines, curb and gutter, drainage improvements, wide sidewalks, LED street lighting and landscaping.  Required noise walls will be installed along both sides of the proposed right-of-way

 New Business:

A host for August 14 at 7pm and November 13 at 7 pm BNCL meeting is needed.  Please notify Mike McGinn if you can host.

BNCL will have a community yard sale.  It is scheduled for June 30, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  We will advertise on Facebook and Craigslist.

The meeting adjourned.
