TPPC March 25, 2010

The Transportation, Parking, and Pedestrian Committee (TPPC) of Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) held a lengthy meeting on Thursday morning.

It began with a Bike & Trail Update. Both general City policy was covered, and TPPC was asked to chime in on a couple Resort Area-specific issues.

The City had begun an experiment of outlining the white markings on concrete roads with black paint. Some had complained that white markings faded against the light colored concrete. The TPPC endorsed such markings for Pacific Avenue's intersections with 21st and 22nd Streets.

Finally, VB Wave service was discussed. What was supposed to be an answering of previous TPPC questions morphed into an animated conversation on Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) not offering a Shuttle 3 Day farecard. Some in the Resort Area believe VB Wave ridership could be boosted by offering such a product.

With the previous items having taken up more time than a normal TPPC meeting in full, discussion of the RAC's recently passed strategic planning goals was passed by until the April TPPC meeting.
