The City of Virginia Beach is working with a phone app, SeeClickFix, which is designed to be used to report problems such as potholes, sidewalks, signs or traffic lights, abandoned grocery carts, overgrown vegetation, etc. You take a picture, write a brief description and it gets directed to the right department. A watch area for Abingdon Village has been created. Here are the details. https://seeclickfix.com/
AVHA has adopted Amherst Lane and Auburn Dr out to Military for litter pickup along the sidewalks. The Parks & Recreation Dept is providing supplies and will post a sign stating that the area is adopted.
As of this writing, other areas nearby are available for adoption by individuals or groups: Level Green park, College Park Blvd, and Providence (from CVS to Treadquarters).
Over the summer a kids litter pickup club was formed by a resourceful young neighbor, and this past weekend, we all combined efforts to help clean up the streets. We picked up 55 pounds of trash!
We’d love to have more neighbors participate. Check the calendar here and the announcements on Nextdoor for the next planned pickup.
Here is more information on the program. https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/parks-recreation/parks-trails/caring-for-our-parks/Pages/adopt-a-programs.aspx
The City of Virginia Beach has released two mobile applications designed to make information more accessible and allow citizens to submit request for services via their mobile devices. To find out more information about these apps, please see this News Release from the City of Virginia Beach.
This week we have a Portable Speed Radar on Auburn Drive and Bennington Road. This Portable Radar is provided by the Virginia Beach Department of Public Works, Traffic Engineering Division, through their Traffic Calming Program. The purpose of this program is designed to address speeding in residential neighborhoods and improve the quality of life on neighborhood streets.
