VIRGINIA BEACH -- City leaders from Virginia Beach are asking for feedback about the proposed sports and entertainment arena at the Oceanfront.
There is now an online forum called Virtual Town Hall where citizens can pose questions about the proposals.
The city is considering two competing proposals from private groups to build an 18,000-seat arena across from the Virginia Beach Convention Center.
- One proposal is from a group that includes the W.M. Jordan Company, HKS Sports & Entertainment and Global Spectrum. Read the proposal here. Watch a video of the Jordan presentation here.
- The other proposal is from a group that includes United States Management LLC, AECOM Architects, Clark Nexsen Architects, Mortenson Construction, SB Ballard Construction and SMG. Read the proposal here. Watch a video of the USM presentation here.
The two groups presented their proposals at a public meeting March 24. A list of questions were compiled following the meeting. Read the questions here. City officials say they are compiling answers to the questions and will post them in the future.
City officials say a task force is reviewing the proposals and will consider questions submitted by the public before they brief the City Council.
A second public meeting is also being planned.
