Parking problems in the village may have no easy fix, but three potentially significant changes are brewing for one of the town’s long-standing difficulties.
Discussion at the March 20 selectmen’s meeting revealed:
- The Parking Authority will meet next month with the Planning and Zoning Commission to discuss village parking — with a possible focus on tightening up of some regulations that relate occupancy to parking provided.
- The town’s planned parking lot off Bailey Avenue is progressing, with revised plans potentially going into the permit process this spring.
- The Parking Authority is negotiating licensing agreement renewals with major commercial property owners, with a model in which 20% of spaces would set aside for permit parking on properties where the town enforces time limits.
