Application of AICUZ guidelines to rezoning decisions [Cue up Map of 70 dB Contour]Applies to both Chesapeake and Virginia Beach--Property in Noise Level 70 dB Day Night Average Noise Level (DNL) or greater Requires that the AICUZ / OPNAV Instruction be followed for discretionary development applications.Would apply to rezoning and use permit applicationsAll affected property owners would have to be notified of any proposed ordinance changes.</p><p>B.Condemnation / purchase of property or property rights in APZ 1 areas around Oceana Naval Air Station and expend no less than $15 million per yearCurrently applies to Virginia Beach. It is unclear whether or not this also applies to Chesapeake. We are seeking clarification on that.</p><p>C.Implementation of the Joint Land Use StudyRefer to C series of Directives from your BRAC Directives Strategy handout on pages 1-5.Chesapeake City Council adopted JLUS on May 24, 2005 Recommendations are categorized as region-wide, by individual City, and for the NavyYour handout focuses on only the regional and Chesapeake initiatives</p><p>D. Evaluate undeveloped properties for rezoning classifications in noise zone 70 dB DNL or greater that would be compatible zoning under AICUZ guidelines</p><p>Applies to both Chesapeake and Virginia Beach [ Cue up map of potential zoning changes properties]Applies to properties in Noise Zones 70dB DNL or greaterMay require zoning reclassifications which would require extensive property owner notification. Seeking clarification on this requirement as it applies to ChesapeakeGeneral Assembly action may be necessaryPotential funding issues may be addressed through General Assembly initiatives, various grant programs, and the OSAP programProperty that is already protected by restrictive easement or under protective property ownership.Map of possible Zoning Reclassification Sites of undeveloped 70 dB DNL or greater sites -- also showing government owned land. Color coded by zoning.</p><p>E. This item calls for the establishment of a program for purchase of development rights of the Inter-Facility Traffic Area between NAS Oceana and NALF Fentress. [Cue up Overall AICUZ Map]</p><p>Effort already underway since early 2005 with PDC, VB, and DoD.Properties for acquisition are identifiedmust be prioritized, and funded.Multiple grants are being pursued These grants include: Department of Defense - Partners in Conservation, possibly $5 million for each CityNOAA- Coastal and Estuarine Lands Program (CELP grant), $5 million asked for by VB, Chesapeake will ask for the same.Virginia Land Conservation Grant, possibly up to $7.5 million, 50% match requiredExpand the OSAP Program to include AICUZ as a qualifying criteria for funding under the program</p><p>The creation of an Oceana/Fentress Advisory Council We are seeking clarification on this. </p><p>Immediate Actions </p><p>First Two Months </p><p>Initiate Review and Update of the Fentress Overlay District The Fentress Overlay District is a component of the Citys Zoning OrdinanceWill take approximately 4 months to completeWill be the foundation for many other subsequent BRAC related actionsNeed to expand study area to 70 dB ContourNeed to revise the land use table of permitted and conditional uses to reflect the OPNAV InstructionNeed an initiating resolutionPurpose is to follow the AICUZ and the OPNAV Instruction in the review of rezoning and conditional use permit applicationsAlso proposed to include a requirement for Conditional Use Permits for regional septic drainfields, package plants, and off-site private septic systems as a good faith effort to control development. </p><p>Immediate Actions </p><p>First Two Months </p><p>Finalize all grant submissions for possible funding of the purchase of easements / development rights (including OSAP funding sources, DoD and NOAA)A variety of different grant opportunities are being investigated that would possibly aid in funding some of the restrictive easements that are being sought for the Inter Facility Area.These grants include: Department of Defense - Partners in Conservation, possibly $5 million for each CityNOAA- Coastal and Estuarine Lands Program (CELP grant), $5 million asked for by VB, Chesapeake will ask for the same.Virginia Land Conservation Grant, possibly up to $7.5 million, 50% match required</p><p>Follow Up on memo from Chesapeake School Board regarding including Navy in the school site selectionAs a part of the initial JLUS effort, the School Administration was approached regarding the inclusion of the Navy in school site selection.Formalize agreement with the School Board.Follow Up / pursue the creation of the Regional JLUS Committee so that regional activities may be initiated.An example of regional effort would be the inclusion of AICUZ information in the Multiple Listing Service</p><p>Amend OSAP Program so that AICUZ candidate sites will be eligible for funding under the program</p><p>Work with other cities in the region to implement a building code strategyMonths Three to Four</p><p>Update the Real Estate Database to include a notation for properties in the Fentress Overlay / AICUZ DistrictThis would be similar to the notation that was added to the Real Estate database to denote properties in the South Norfolk Historic District.This type of notation would provide advanced notice to anyone researching the property and would help to communicate to persons This notation would provide and opportunity to communicate the propertys relation to AICUZ districts to persons selling their property outside the Multiple Listing Service.</p><p>Formalize Avigation Easement programNeed to develop a policy document and guidelines</p><p>On Going Actions</p><p>The City is already engaged in these required on-going activities. </p><p>These activities were initiated out of the JLUS recommendations and the Jet Noise Task Force recommendations.</p><p>We will need to review the Citys website and other communication efforts to make sure information is up to date and appropriate. </p><p>We may wish to consider other educational efforts on our own or as a part of the regional effort. For example, we may want to pursue an education program to try to capture For Sale by Owner land transactions.</p><p>We will need to continue to actively participate on Regional JLUS Committee and pursue specific action items of a regional nature such as the inclusion of AICUZ information in the Multiple Listing Service.</p></li></ul>
