VA CRMP Outreach

The Office of the Virginia Secretary of Natural Resources (SNR) will be hosting eight public meetings throughout the Virginia Coastal Zone in the coming weeks. The goal of these initial public meetings is to educate stakeholders and the public about the Coastal Resilience Master Plan (CRMP) and to capture input and feedback that can help inform CRMP efforts moving forward. We have conducted an Impact Assessment that shows how Virginia’s people and landscape will be affected by coastal hazards, now and in the future. This Impact Assessment incorporates coastal flood hazard modeling and shows coastal flooding risks, identifies planned work to reduce those risks, shows where there are gaps between risks and solutions. These public meetings are intended to present the findings of this Impact Assessment, and create a process for continued public feedback that ensures participation and collaboration, as well as providing the public an opportunity to share their experiences with flooding and their perspective on solutions the CRMP should consider. All are welcome to participate in the public planning process, so please check below to find a meeting location that will be most convenient for you to attend. All meetings will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm., and all COVID protocols as directed by the meeting locations will be followed.
