Virtual Town Hall
Open Town Hall

Should the City of Virginia Beach pay tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by designating a local roadway as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Highway? If so, which one? 12/05/16 - For clarification, the City is considering designating a roadway, not renaming, in honor of Dr. King.
