Fire Threatens Cape Story By The Sea on Shore Drive!
Mark A. Moore, ABR - Virginia Beach Real Estate (RE/MAX Alliance - REMAX)

With such windy conditions on 19 February, 2011, this was a dangerous situation.  The fire traveled from behind Long Creek Cove Condos, east to Maple Street, then south toward the east end of Marina Shores boat docks.

This has happened before but this time the blaze seemed quite substantial.

Pinetrees on Fire

Those Pines are approx. 20-25 feet tall.

Fire at end of Maple Street

Fortunately the wind blew the best possible direction to avoid our homes.  The VBFD responded quickly and got the job done.   Saw my old friend Van Rutherford in the middle of the action.  Much thanks to Van and his fellow firemen.

Marina Shores Planned Expansion Into Cape Story By The Sea, Off of Shore Drive in Virginia Beach
Mark A. Moore, ABR - Virginia Beach Real Estate (RE/MAX Alliance - REMAX)

Marina Shores Aims To Rezone Wetlands for Pier Expansion

The following was received by Cape Story By The Sea's Civic Association from a concerned resident.  The Planning Department has verified the information provided.


Wetlands Board Hearing Sign


There is sign posted indicating a December 20, 2010 (right before Christmas) Wetlands Board meeting to:

  • Add 48 boat slips to Marina Shores
  • Establish a commercial pier along the river all the way down to Wake Forest Street, starting at the Marina Shores parking lot
  • Relocate the existing boat channel closer to Bay Island to so the new commercial pier will fit all of the new boats
  • Destroy 1220 sf of wetlands to create a barge inlet to serve a dredge spoil site (long-term)
  • Rezone the property from residential to commercial.

This photo shows the project area.

The proposed floating docks would be placed from this spot, to the boats on the right in the background below.

Long Creek - Wake Forest Towards Marina Shores

 The meeting is at City Hall on December 20.  For more information, call 385-8246.

Though hard to read, here is a link to the Marina's plans, as submitted to the City of Virginia Beach, on Cape Story By The Sea's website.

My plans are to voice my opposition if there is an attempt to rezone residential property to commercial zoning.  Though this land is not appropriate for homes, this wetland area should be protected.  The storm of November 2009 (Tropical Storm Ida's strong Northeaster) again showed how prone to flooding this area is.  I manage rental homes in both Long Creek Cove at Marina Shores as well as in Cape Story By The Sea, including a home at the end of Sandalwood Road that saw 3+ feet of tidal water in its garage several times last Fall.

Please feel free to comment below in favor or against this proposed project.
