City Council will hear from Williamsburg Tourism Council CEO Victoria Cimino and will discuss the local effects of recent General Assembly bills at its next work session on June 10.
Cimino joined the Chamber and Tourism Alliance’s Tourism Council in April as its new executive director and chief executive officer, taking over for temporary Tourism Council Jody Puckett, who filled the role since the departure of interim executive director Bob Harris in October, according to a past Virginia Gazette report.
During the quarterly tourism update report, Cimino is expected to review recent highlights including last month’s Ironman 70.3 triathlon, and will discuss the development of the Council’s strategic plan, which will serve as a five-year road map for the board.
City Council also will receive a update on the impact of new legislation passed during the most recent General Assembly session.
City Attorney Christina Shelton will provide a look at the local effects of laws that passed through General Assembly during its 2019 regular session. The report will focus on 21 House and Senate bills, covering topics including taxation, zoning, social services and more, according to an attached agenda item.
Notable bills include HB 1913, which allows localities to require that all developed or subdivided lots include sidewalks in their comprehensive plans, and HB 2752, which states that as of January 1, 2020, motorized skateboards and scooters with a maximum speed of 20 mph and weighing less than 100 pounds can be operated on sidewalks unless an ordinance is adopted to ban them.
