Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Norfolk/Virginia Beach joint land use study

Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk and the Navy have come to terms on a final

Council okayed a statement of understanding, outlining steps to reduce
incompatible encroachment around jet noise and accident potential zones
around Oceana and Fentress Field.

disagreements on some points. Still, leaders say that reaching agreement
on the parameters of the joint land use study was a significant first
