  • Like many neighborhoods in Norfolk, East Beach celebrated the 4th of July with a patriotic neighborhood parade. The day began with breakfast for the over 500 participants followed by the national anthem, and a special guest appearance by Benjamin Franklin at the top of the tower reading the preamble to the Declaration of Independence. The Norfolk Fire Department provided a fire truck from Station 16 for static display, a hit with the children! The 380th Army Band Brass Quintet provided wonderful patriotic music and the Navy Color Guard presented the flag. Attending the ceremony was Mayor Kenney Alexander.

    The parade consisted of red white and blue decorated bicycles, wagons, strollers, skateboards, golf carts, pets and people. While East Beach honors the military each year at this event, this year it also celebrated First Responders.

    East Beach is proud that many Active Duty military and First Responders call our community home, so to highlight this tradition of service among our residents, the Grand Marshall this year was resident Jimmy Carter, retired Virginia Beach Fire Chief representing First Responders as well as residents in uniform representing our Military: Cdr. C. Todd Winters, USN, Cdr. Rosie Goscinski, USN Lt. Cdr. Brett Kirwan, USN, Capt. Alexandra Borza, USA and Lt. Ryan Feingold, USN.

  • What a summer it has been! Nothing but rain in July and now heat for August. The weather however has not slowed down the progress I continue to see in our community! We had a wonderful presentation in July by the Bonaventure Development Team regarding their plans to replace the Little Creek Marina “high and dry” on Pretty Lake Ave with Senior apartments. The amenities this waterfront project will offer those who are 62+ include a gym, pool, business center and 2 meals per day. Another project, the apartments in front of Long Boards, also seems to be on track and I am told Zimmer Development utilized public input in their design to include access around the buildings with a walking path. The marina will keep the 114 slips but offer boat owners some of the community amenities. Both projects should be coming out of the ground in about a year with occupancy planned for 2020. In addition, we have progress on the Surf Rider re-build which promises to bring us a new upscale restaurant next year. The Tern continues to move through the Planning and Zoning departments and 2019 should see them start to build that townhouse project located behind the 7/11 on Pleasant Ave and will include 16,000 square feet of retail space on East Ocean View Ave to include another new restaurant.

    I was sad to learn Razzo’s will be leaving for their new digs in the old Fire Station at Little Creek and Hampton Blvd, but I’m told a very nice tea/coffee shop should be coming to that location. Then we lost Mona Lisa’s to the Medical Center’s expansion. Tommy is doing well at his new location on Military Highway and promises to deliver to EOV when you just need a special Mona Lisa’s pizza.

    Change is our new constant. We are welcoming new neighbors every week. I hope everyone can feel the energy and embraces our special community on the Bay. Your Civic League is working hard to make sure neighbors are included and projects are vetted properly. We received our 501©4 designation this summer and hope that will translate into new opportunities to help the community. We look forward to some engaging speakers this fall including our Mayor in November. Stay involved and stay tuned, change is coming!
