NA Traffic Commission Considers Protection Ave Parking Restrictions
iBerkshires.com reports the Traffic Commission is considering "No Parking" regulations on Protection Avenue.
The commissioners reviewed findings from a site visit Monday and agreed to some preliminary recommendations to be communicated with the residents at a future meeting.
Chairman David Sacco said they have mostly focused on the "s curve" part of the road that often gets congested during sporting events at Alcombright Athletic Complex.
The commission felt "No Parking" along the westerly side of the road from State Road to the area near the end of the T-ball field would alleviate some of the issues.
Sacco said there are already "No Parking" signs on the east side, however, they were never adopted correctly. The commission proposed extending "No Parking" from the Greylock Works driveway to the utility pole adjacent to the overflow lot.
This would correct the possible enforcement issue.
It was noted that all residents have their own parking and there was not a need for on-street parking
Sacco suggested adding a date to these restrictions because parking really only becomes an issue during baseball, softball, and soccer season when Alcombright Field is utilized.
The commission voted to reach out to the public and have this meeting in January. At that time, the commission will have measurements and site maps.
