Overview

 

The Military Circle area has been a regional crossroads for decades. The intersection of two major boulevards—Military Highway and Virginia Beach Boulevard—created a transportation and economic crossroads in the mid-20th century that led to the growth of much of the early retail development in the region, such as the JANAF shopping center. The Economic Development Authority purchased much of this area in 2020 with the ambitious goal to redevelop the area into a thriving walkable district to support an inclusive, healthy, and sustainable mixed-use community.

The EDA has received three proposals to redevelop the area. Links to each of the executive summaries are below.  A public input forum and survey is being developed.

We welcome your input!
