The mission is to inform and educate stakeholders about the impacts of the Kitty Hawk Wind Project, advocate for a fair public engagement process, hold decision-makers accountable to ensure the project is in the best interest of citizens and protect Sandbridge Beach from industrial development to maintain its pristine state for economic benefit and quality of life.

At Sandbridge Beach, we are a community of concerned individuals who share a common goal - to protect our coastal environment and prevent the industrialization of the ocean off the Virginia Beach shoreline. We are deeply worried about the impact that fast-tracked wind turbine development could have on our tourism, fisheries, wildlife, and coastal communities. We believe that developers must demonstrate, beyond any reasonable doubt, that these projects will result in a net benefit for the area before moving forward. However, they often fail to answer specific questions raised by attendees at public wind meetings. As a community, we are calling for non-biased public meetings where developers can present evidence to support their claims. Unfortunately, these meetings are few and far between, and they are often filled with wind propaganda. We believe that it is essential for the public to have access to accurate and reliable information so that they can make informed decisions about the future of our coast. Join us in our efforts to protect the natural beauty and biodiversity of Sandbridge Beach, and to promote sustainable development that benefits our local communities. Together, we can ensure that our coast remains a vibrant and thriving ecosystem for generations to come.
