Va. Beach Wants Sand on Chic's Beach, but Needs Court's Help

Posted:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - City leaders want the shrinking shoreline along the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia Beach to be replenished with sand, but they'll need a state court to clear the path for that to occur.

Virginia Beach has filed a petition asking the Virginia Beach Circuit Court to rule the city has an easement on the beach by the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel widely known as Chic's Beach.

The ruling is necessary because some property owners dispute the city's claim that the public has a right to use the beach by their homes. The city needs to prove the beach is a public beach before it can move forward with a replenishment project.

Chic's Beach is highly popular with locals who like to avoid the tourists and large crowds found at the oceanfront.
