Urbanna Parking Causes Issue With New Restaurant

In Urbanna, plans for a new restaurant named The Urban Oyster face obstacles due to parking issues. Shawn Pickett seeks a Special Use Permit for the establishment, but the town’s code demands one parking space per three restaurant seats, and that is seen as a big challenge in Urbanna’s historic, densely-built area. Neighbors raised concerns about potential parking overflow and noise. The town council decided to delay a decision on the permit until May 9th.
