On Thursday afternoon Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Committee (RAC) held it's April meeting.
Michael Jenkins has been given a 4 month extension to put together a firm proposal for redeveloping the Dome site. Jenkins had asked for 2 months, while the Virginia Beach Development Authority (VBDA) granted 4 months.
The RAC voted to endorse a proposal for a one-year pilot program to operate pedicabs exclusively along the bike path adjacent to the Boardwalk. Some discussion ensued as to whether or not a permanent arrangement should have a single company or multiple companies competing.
Commissioners were show plans for a Walgreen's proposed to be built on the site of the former post office at 24th Street. Some wondered whether the current building could be morphed into a Walgreen's, rather than the planned new building. In addition, concerns were expressed over how the layout would interface with nighttime loitering along Atlantic Avenue.
