Virginia Beach, Va. - This evening in Virginia Beach the public is invited to a meeting hosted by city leaders about their plan to end homelessness.

The Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation is updating the city's 10-year plan to end homelessness.

It was originally adopted by city council in 2007.

All cities are required to have a 10-year plan to continue receiving federal funds to address homelessness.

In May, the city council approved funding for a housing resource center to be located on Witchduck Road.

Federal regulations also require certain changes to the city's homeless services system to be in effect by August 2014.

Tonight, the public has a chance to weigh in on those plans.

The meeting will be held at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library on Virginia Beach Boulevard at 6 p.m.
