TPPC February 26, 2009

The Transportation, Parking, and Pedestrian Committee (TPPC) of Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) met on Thursday morning. The meeting ran about a third longer than TPPC meetings normally.

The meeting began with a discussion of the charter buses shuttling convention delegates between their hotels and the convention center. Currently a number of the buses are either violating parking Ordinances or forcing drivers on Atlantic Avenue to break the rules of the road. In the end, the matter was sent to the City's traffic engineers. They are to report back with short and long term options and recommendations.

There was a long discussion about bicycles riding in the trolley lanes. After about 25-30 minutes, it was decided to leave the status quo.

Finally, there was a Presentation on the Pacific Avenue Trail extension. While supporting the concept, final design issues will be sent to the RAC's Plan/Design Review Committee (PDRC).
