Order relative to amending the Code of Ordinance Chapter 17, Traffic and Motor Vehicles.
Add to Chapter 17, Traffic and Motor Vehicles, section 17-92, sub section D; Squidere Lane â€“ no parking on the east side of the road from the intersection of Depot Road to theÂ Blackstone cul-de-sac.
This request is being made in response to the parking that occurs on both sides of Squidere Lane during Little League season. This is a narrow road and with vehicles parked on both sides of the road it severely restricts emergency vehicle access to Blackstone housing complex.
Add to Chapter 17, Traffic and Motor Vehicles, section 17-92, sub section D; Andrews Avenue â€“ no parking, tow away zone, May 1 until September 30 from 6 am to 6 pm. It appears that this restriction was never adopted, beyond a sunset limited emergency ordinance amendment, by the Town Council when the signs were erected in 2006. This restriction was imposed after being requested by the residents of Andrews Ave. Prior to the emergency ordinance adopted by the Town Council, people began parking on both sides of the street when Mackworth Island restricted parking on the island. This also was a safety hazard for emergency vehicles accessing the area when both sides of the road were parked on.
This item was introduced at the February 25 council meeting with a public hearing in March.
