The Transportation, Parking, and Pedestrian Committee (TPPC) of Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) met on Thursday morning. There were two focus areas in a relatively short meeting.
On a 5-1 vote the TPPC endorsed expanding the horse riding on the beach franchise to year-round. The owners claimed they needed the extension in order for the business to be financially viable. CCO RAC representative Henry Ryto cast the lone "No" vote. Any change would eventually need City Council approval.
Copies of the City's 2007 Parking Report were distributed, followed by discussion. Notable for residents is that Staff is already looking at sites for new structured parking to offset the pending loss of spaces at 19th Street due to Dome site redevelopment.
