HRSD's development review process will now be handled by the HRSD Planning and Analysis Division. All forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Electronic versions of all corresponding documentation should be included as attachments to the form email. A form for each connection is required for projects with more than one connection. For all submissions, the PDF version of the form is the preferred electronic document to send in to the email address.
Supporting documentation that cannot be emailed should be mailed along with a typed copy of the form to: HRSD Development Services, P.O. Box 5911, Virginia Beach, VA 23471-0911.
