RAC November 4, 2010

Virginia Beach's Resort Advisory Commission (RAC) met on Thursday afternoon for about an hour.

The RAC approved the TPPC's earlier endorsement for a change in Virginia Beach's surrey ordinance. The amendment would add relocation to the criteria under which a business west of Atlantic Avenue would lose it's ability to rent surreys.

A private car collector is looking to open an auto museum in the 400th block of 18th Street. The property has a warehouse that formerly was used by Princess Anne Plumbing & Heating.

The possibility of RAC programming on VBTV is being looked into.

The GREEN Committee brought forward a motion to advocate that Virginia move to California's standard on the operation of pool water pumps, on the grounds that it would mean energy savings. It passed with CCO representative Henry Ryto the lone "No" vote. Ryto, himself a former Certified Pool Operator, was concerned about the impact on pool water quality.

The Oceanfront Enhancement Committee (OEC) decided to name a task force comprising all stakeholders to examine the issue of food & beverage sales at Resort Area events.

A link has been added to the Gift of Tourism website to take Internet surfers to the Resort Area projects landing page.

Oceanfront residents have begun a phone calling campaign over the parking impact of the proposed new Eden restaurant on 32nd Street.

Finally, Commissioners were given a presentation on the Mayor's Alternative Energy Task Force's final report.
