In Virginia Beach, some of the state’s most prominent conservative voices have expressed concern about a proposal to build a beach near a major Democratic county.
The plan is in the works for a public park in South Kensington, a city about 20 miles north of Virginia Beach.
In addition to the Virginians’ favorite spot, the park would include a small water park, an ocean beach and a private beach for visitors.
The park is scheduled to open in 2019 and will include a volleyball court, beach volleyball, water slide, water slides, sand volleyball, fishing pier, water and beach volleyball courts and a water park with restrooms and shade.
The idea, backed by the National Parks Conservation Association, is to create a park with a focus on preserving Virginias beaches.
But the state Coastal Commission is also expected to approve the plan, which would allow private developers to build two large private sand volleyball courts.
The plans call for four water and two beach volleyball fields.
But while the state Conservation Commission has said the plan would be “prohibited” in the state, some local leaders in the Virgin Islands have expressed their concerns about the plan.
They are concerned about a large public beach, the possibility of erosion, the impact of the plan on the island’s economy, and potential economic impact on nearby communities.
The Coastal Commission said the project has not been evaluated by the Department of Natural Resources and would not be in accordance with the state park system.
“The commission has been working to review the project and consider public input,” the commission said in a statement.
“This is an issue of public trust, and the commission is taking all necessary actions to protect Virginias public beaches and their environment.”
The plan for a park at South Kenshampton has been met with resistance from residents who have said the park will negatively affect the community.
One woman who lives just steps from the park is Debbie Schoemaker, who said the beach would have a “disadvantage” to the community and a negative impact on the nearby community of the islands.
“If we’re going to go up and have a picnic, I don’t think we’re getting anything that we want,” she said.
She said the parks plan could be “really bad” and that it would make the area a “dead zone.”
“I think it’s really going to make us feel like we’re living in a dead zone,” she told WTOP.
“It’s a really, really negative plan.
I don, and we’re not.”
A spokesman for the state Department of Economic Development told WVAE that the department has not yet received any comments on the proposal.
“We encourage Virginians to discuss the impacts of this proposal with their elected officials in the General Assembly and the Governor,” the spokesman said in an email.
“We are committed to ensuring that all Virginians benefit from Virginia’s beaches, and that’s why we continue to work to make our beaches a welcoming place for all to enjoy.”
The South Kens Hamptons Community Association did not respond to requests for comment.”
Any comments submitted to the commission will be considered carefully.”

Virginia Beach Mayor Kevin Stromme told WTVR the plan “is not a good idea” and would “damage the environment, the beach, and other things in the neighborhood.”
He also said he is not opposed to the project, but believes it needs to be considered by the state.
“My concern is that this proposal will create a lot of traffic on the roads, so that will affect the economy,” he said.
“I know that the state wants to protect our beaches, but this is a really bad idea.
We’re not going to have enough time for it to happen.”
