The Cape Charles Town Council approved a handicapped parking space at 627 Jefferson Avenue.
In October 2023, the Town received a notice from Ms. Charlene Riley, a resident residing at 627 Jefferson Avenue, seeking assistance in securing a designated handicapped parking space near her home due to her medical condition, which severely hampers her mobility.
In response to Ms. Riley’s request, town officials engaged with the local VDOT (Virginia Department of Transportation) office. VDOT outlined a procedural requirement necessitating the Town’s submission of the request, accompanied by a Town Council resolution offering support, a detailed map indicating the preferred parking location, and a substantive reason for the request. VDOT’s Traffic Engineering Division would subsequently review and sanction the request if deemed appropriate, furnishing installation specifics to the Town upon approval.
