Chincoteague Mayor: Assateague Parking Plans In "Final Stages"

Posted: Updated:

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. - Once the Chincoteague ponies make the trip back to Assateague Island on Friday, town officials say their next goal is to figure out parking on the beach.

Mayor Jack Tarr says their plan has been passed along to the Department of Interior's legal team and is in the final stages. In April, council members and residents met to discuss different options, including moving parking a mile north.

"We want our parking at the beach," said Tarr. "We want 1,000 car parking at the beach and we can work on the details from there.  We're so lucky, we won a lot of awards this year and last year and the year before because the beach is such a beautiful place to go."

Tarr says he hopes a viable option will be decided on in September.
