Today’s Virginian-Pilot reports the following:
The City Council will hold a public hearing tonight and vote on whether to use eminent domain to gain access to the Cape Henry beaches for a sand replenishment project.
The council has reached an impasse with some Cape Henry Beach residents, who claim that they own the beach and the public has no right to use it. The city argues that people have walked along the beaches for decades, there are several public access points, and city crews clean up the trash and patrol the beach.
The formal City Council meeting begins at 6 p.m.
Ask yourself this questions, if you cut your neighbor’s grass and your kids cut through their lawn for years to get to the street behind your home, does this give you the right to claim your neighbor’s property?
Now ask yourself this important question – what will YOU do to help your neighbor defend their property rights?
