On Thursday afternoon Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) met in a brief meeting that lasted just under an hour.
Unanimous approval was given to:
1. Mission Statements for the 5 RAC Subcommittees - the RAC itself has long had a Mission Statement, but none of the Subcommittees has had one - until now.
2. Trolley route changes - as previously reported, northbound traffic on Routes 30 and 32 north of 25th Street will be diverted from Atlantic Avenue to Pacific Avenue
A Locals Campaign has been developed. A Presentation will be given to senior City Staff on April 18 to try to gain approval and funding to move forward.
Commissioners were informed that the Virginia Beach Development Authority (VBDA) had postponed choosing a developer for Dome site redevelopment.
Finally, a nugget for those who think the RAC spends money wildly. I previously reported on the issue of lighting for the bike path on Norfolk Avenue between the Colony Trailer Park and Parks Avenue. Well, the RAC's Plan/Design Review Committee (PDRC) came back with a proposal that would install only one new light pole, using existing utility poles. A thrifty solution to a public safety problem. (Bet Bob O'Connor won't report that in The Monitor.)
