Virginia Beach, VA

Type: Advisory

Outcome: Loss

Results: Fail, 57% - 43%

In 2012, Virginia Beach voted to allow the Norfolk City Council to adopt an ordinance approving the use of all reasonable efforts to support the financing and development of The Tide light rail.  This November, a similar non-binding ballot question has made it to the ballot via petition.  It reads: “Should the City of Virginia Beach spend local funds to extend Light Rail from Norfolk to Town Center in Virginia Beach?”
