What is an “At-Large” City Councilman?
The City of Virginia Beach has an 11-member City Council with representatives for Bayside, Kempsville, Centerville, Beach, Lynnhaven, Rose Hall and Princess Anne. These members of the Virginia Beach City Council are required to live in the district they represent.
The remaining members of the City Council are the Mayor and three “At-Large” members who represent citizens citywide while having no restrictions as to where in the City of Virginia Beach they must reside in order to serve as a member of City Council.
