TPPC September 25, 2008

On Thursday morning the Transportation, Parking, and Pedestrian Committee (TPPC) of Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) met.

An overview of parking tickets issued in the Resort Area was given. The 2008 total will be the lowest since 1995. In fact, Norfolk issues three times as many tickets on Granby Street than Virginia Beach issues in the Resort Area.

Proposals were sent over from the Oceanfront Enhancement Committee (OEC) concerning behavior spillover into adjacent neighborhoods. The OEC had recommended cul-de-sacing 16th Street in the 300th block, but the impacted civic league leaders now want 15th Street done, too. It was decided to send the matter to the City's highway engineers for a preliminary analysis.

VBWave ridership was higher in July and August, with 2008 ridership numbers now on par with 2006. While below 2007 figures, Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) now thinks last year was an anomaly.
