The Norfolk and Virginia Beach Joint Land Use Study has scheduled its last two public meetings.

The meetings will be in the Big Blue Room at Old Dominion University’s Ted Constant Center from 6 p.m. to 8 pm. on Aug. 12 and in the Miller Room at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts on Aug. 13.

In addition to the public meetings, the public comment deadline for the draft study has been extended to Aug. 15.

City officials said that will allow attendees at the public meetings to submit comments.

The Norfolk and Virginia Beach Joint Land Use Study is a joint effort between the two cities, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission, and several Navy installations in South Hampton Roads, according to the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission’s website.

The study will focus on identifying specific conditions, including recurrent flooding, coastal storms and erosion, outside of the military footprint that have the potential to impact Navy operations in Hampton Roads.
