Localities wishing to participate under the Act must establish an Advisory Commission pursuant to Section 10-222 of the Code and in accordance with the requirements below. For purposes of developing a project under the Act, any county shall be deemed to have jurisdiction over all public beaches within the county, including those public beaches within a town; provided a resolution from the town authorizing the county to act in its behalf is submitted to the Commission. For a town or city which has exercised its option to establish an Advisory Commission, all of the public beaches within that town or city shall be deemed under the jurisdiction of that town or city.

The Advisory Commission in a locality shall be appointed by the local governing body. Terms of office, removal from office, reappointment and appointments to fill vacancies shall be matters decided by the local governing body; provided, however, that the local governing body shall adopt a procedure to ensure that any vacancy occurring on the Advisory Commission is filled within a reasonable period of time. Appointees to the Advisory Commission shall consist of at least five persons.

An Advisory Commission appointee also may not be a member of any of the following: the Commission on the Conservation and Development of Public Beaches, the Soil and Water Conservation Commission, the Marine Resources Commission, the Board of Conservation and Economic Development, the Commission on Outdoor Recreation. An Advisory Commission shall organize itself, shall notify the Commission of its existence and membership, and shall designate one of its members or other official as a point of contact with the Commission. An Advisory Commission shall bear the responsibilities and duties imposed upon them by Section 10-222 of the Code of Virginia and such other responsibilities and duties, consistent with law, which from time to time may be imposed upon them by the local governing body or the Commission and as stated in other sections of these Regulations.
