RAC September 3, 2009

This afternoon Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) held an uneventful (read: boring) September meeting.

A Nominating Committee has been formed to select a new Chair and Vice Chair for 2010. Both Ken Taylor (Chair) and Gerrie King West (Vice Chair) have served three years in their posts, the maximum under the RAC Charter. That means entirely new Officers for 2010.

Plans are soon to be submitted to turn 17th Street (between Atlantic and Pacific Avenues) into a historic area. Plan/Design Review Committee (PDRC) Chairman Billy Almond said the proposal "looks really cool."

The Oceanfront Enhancement Committee (OEC) covered the issue of the behavior of homeless people in the Resort Area. The meeting was attended by Staff from agencies who deal with the homeless. The OEC hopes to draft a comprehensive plan on the issue.

The annual report for the Tourism Growth Investment Fund (TGIF) is due October 15. The RAC will review it at the November meeting.

It is hoped to have a Presentation on the City's Legislative Package at the October RAC meeting, with attention to items that impact the Resort Area.
