The Open Space Advisory Committee was established by City Council in May 2001. The mission of this committee is to research and evaluate undeveloped properties throughout the City for possible acquisition to preserve as open space in support of the Virginia Beach Outdoors Plan. The Open Space Advisory Committee reports to the Parks & Recreation Commission and to City Council.
The members of the Open Space Advisory Committee provide guidance for the Virginia Beach Outdoors Plan open space acquisition initiative. To accomplish this initiative, Committee members have met monthly since June 2001 and have dedicated numerous hours to evaluate properties for possible acquisition by the City of Virginia Beach for open space preservation.
Open Space Advisory Committee meetings are held on the fourth Monday of every month at 3 p.m. and are open to the public. Meetings are located in the Parks and Recreation Administration Building located at 2154 Landstown Road.
The OSAC generally meets on the fourth Monday of every month at 3 p.m. and is open to the public.
