Virginia Beach’s Windsor Woods/Princess Anne Plaza
Presented by Mike Bumbaco, Project Manager, City of Virginia Beach

This project features tide gates and pump stations to restore Lake Windsor storage during high tide events; a connection to Lake Trashmore and the conversion of Bow Creek Golf Course (120 acres) to a stormwater park with recreation features.  Ten miles of large storm drain improvements are proposed.

Norfolk’s Ohio Creek Watershed Project
Presented by Doug Beaver, Chief Resilience Officer, City of Norfolk 

The Resilience Park, funded through a Federal grant, connects the Grandy Village and Chesterfield Heights neighborhoods and includes a flood berm, a restored tidal creek and wetland and other environmental features as well as a multi-use sports field and places for community gatherings, sports and play. Resilience Park strives to be a model for resilient open space that is uniquely Norfolk.
