Welcome!

The Lake Christopher community surrounds beautiful Lake Christopher in the Centerville District of Virginia Beach, Virginia. We are near the intersection of Indian River Road and Kempsville Road, about 1 mile from I-64 and Regent University. There are 361 homes and four private parks in the Lake Christopher community, surrounding our 60 acre private lake. Public schools serving Lake Christopher are Tallwood High School, Brandon Middle School, and Indian Lakes Elementary School.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Flood Insurance Survey

 

The LCHA has been contacted by RTI International, a non-profit research institute that is partnering with DHS on a project designed to understand how people in Virginia think about flooding and flood insurance, and what their experiences with flooding have been. 

 

They understand that the potential for flooding is a particular issue in some parts of Virginia, and they’re interested in reaching residents of communities in the Chesapeake, Norfolk, Newport News, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach areas.  While working through the City of Virginia Beach, they learned about our HOA, and are asking us to help them with their current survey.

 

Interested residents can participate in this study through one the following ways:

 

1. Through a link to an online version of the survey (preferred).  You can preview the survey by opening the survey document below, and then complete the survey itself online at this link: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3993242/Virginia-Flood-Survey

 

2. Print and fill out the survey form (below).  RTI staff would then either pick up the completed surveys or provide a self-addressed envelope with pre-paid postage for mailing the surveys back to them.

 

The survey is funded by DHS. The survey is completely voluntary and it is unpaid. However, the results of the survey are extremely important and community members may find the survey interesting or helpful. Results from the survey will be used to help them to develop education and other materials that will help people in our community. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to complete.

 

For questions about the survey itself, contact Sarah Ray, Communication Scientist, Science in the Public Sphere Program, Center for Communication Science, RTI International, Century Center 1, 2987 Clairmont Rd. NE, Suite 400, Atlanta, GA 30345, 770.407.4934
