TPPC June 25, 2009

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

The meeting began with the Planning Department's Mark Schnaufer giving a Briefing on ongoing light rail developments for Virginia Beach.

Next was the issue of replacing the Bus/Bike signs on Atlantic Avenue. Given that it would be 2010 before the signs would now be up, the TPPC decided to take it's time and allow Staff (VBPD, VB Traffic Engineering, and HRT) all come back with what they want.

With the pilot program for horse riding on the beach during the off-season over, the TPPC moved to have it become a permanent program. In issuing the new RFP, Staff was requested to tighten the language to cover the holes that the pilot program operator had slipped through. (Most importantly, simply not operating on some days advertised.)

Feedback came on the LED lighting experiment: lights on the Boardwalk and south side of 2nd Street were good, but not on the north side of 2nd.
