VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Results of a recent survey show Virginia Beach residents appear to “love” the idea of a surf park for the old Dome site.
The city launched a survey earlier this year to gauge different aspects of possible development at the site. At the moment, officials are exploring a proposal backed by Pharrell Williams would include a year-round surf park, a live music venue and restaurants.
In the survey, residents were asked about the possibility of bike rental stations, parking (both for cars and bikes) and entertainment ideas.
The some-2,300 people who responded appeared to be most excited about the surf park and live music. There were strong responses, too, for public parking, bicycle parking and drop-off/pick-up zones for ride sharing.
Andy Fox will have more coverage on the survey results tonight on WAVY News 10, with coverage beginning at 4.
