VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A big step forward for people who worked in Building Two, the site of the May tragedy in Virginia Beach.

The Planning Department, which is also known as the Permits and Inspections Department, will move Friday afternoon from Building 19 at the Municipal Center to a more permanent office on Sabre Street near Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach.

Because of Friday's move, all planning and community development offices will be closed until Monday August 26.

The department says permits and inspections will continue to process online requests while the offices are closed.

Employees say online requests will be reviewed as quickly as possibly, but response times may be delayed.
