Mayor Fraim Speech
NORFOLK, Va. -- City of Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim addresses a gathering of residents from the Willoughby Spit and East Ocean View areas of the city March 30, 2015, in a ceremony during which an agreement between the city and the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was signed to combat sea-level rise. The agreement paves the way for construction of a coastal storm damage reduction project that's unprecedented in the 333-year history of the city. The initial beach nourishment will expand the width of roughly seven miles of the beach by 60 feet in the Willoughby Spit and East Ocean View areas. (U.S. Army photo/Patrick Bloodgood)
