City pruning trees in Lago Mar

Written By: LMCL - Apr• 19•16

During the month of April, pruning in areas of Lago Mar is expected to take place.  Pruning will involve elevations of trees in the city right-of-way that overhang or protrude into the street. Neighborhoods were selected to be part of the 2016 program due to the number of service requests that we’ve received from residents, as well as Landscape Management priority ratings.

If possible, residents are asked to relocate any vehicles that may be blocking street trees while the work is being done.

Streets that are affected will be:

Artesia Way

Zia Drive

Zia Court

Tierra Monte Arch

Vadito Way

Santa Fe Arch

Perez Way/Court

Dasa Leo Court

Albuquerque Drive

Rio Rancho Drive


“Event House Rentals” in Lago Mar?

Written By: LMCL - Apr• 10•16

Fellow VB Residents,

There is a draft ordinance working its way through the City that would permit homeowners and real estate companies to rent single family homes on a short-term basis for the purpose of hosting events or parties.  This practice of conducting such commercial activities within residential neighborhoods has already become a problem for residents in Sandbridge.  If anything similar to the proposed ordinance passes, event houses could be operated in any neighborhood within Virginia Beach.

Please check out the petition on, at the following link, and consider signing the petition, and sharing this with others.
