VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A Citizens Committee met Wednesday to discuss the possibility of an 18,500-seat arena in Virginia Beach.

The committee is made up of local leaders of business and civic organizations. Members of the committee will not take a position on the project but will rather act as a public information source to the city council.
