“The City Council approved on Tuesday the transfer of $1.2 million from the parking enterprise fund for Freebee.”

Shore Drive gets shafted yet again. So far.

While OceanFront again secures infinite funding, the Bayfront Shuttle budget gets SLASHED IN HALF.

“Route 35 Bayfront – The frequency will be modified to operate every 60-minutes. Route 35 will not provide service to Parks Avenue/19th Street. Service will be streamlined along Pacific Avenue. Route 35 will service the Edgar Cayce A.R.E on 67th St.”

“City Council approves all Shore Drive Safety Task Force recommendations!” #ThrowbackThursday 17 years

Equitable safety improvements for cyclists & pedestrians like contiguous sidewalks & bike lanes are coming to Shore Drive!

DELAYS since June 7th 2006!*

Read the news here where Vice Mayor Jones was quoted:

“I think the council is committed to getting the improvements done[.]”

* Remember when the powers that be tried making Shore Drive 6 LANES in the 90s?!

Remarkably, the then named Shore Drive Advisory Committee(SDAC) heard the presentation from the Shore Drive Safety Task Force at their April 20th 2006 meeting.


Here is the entire report from the Shore Drive Safety Task Force from April 20 2006.

SDAC, now named the Bayfront Advisory Commission(BAC) has their public meeting today at 330pm at the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad where they will be grappling with the news of yet another PROPOSED delay in upgrading circa 1950s infrastructure in the “Gateway to the OceanFront & Virginia Beach” while the OceanFront continuously receives virtually infinite money for almost every idea proposed there.

Clearly this is heavily used by pedestrians & cyclists.
Why do City priorities continue to ignore the infrastructure needs of this area let alone the aesthetics that it’s embarrassing & looks like shit?

Join us today at BAC at OPVRS!

Schulman added, “To see the project was delay deferred was extremely disappointing to me, because I knew it would be also extremely disappointing to our residents.”
