Some Good News, Some Bad News At Traffic & Parking Committee Meeting



The bad news...
Despite numerous board orders from Alderman Sean O'Donovan and public testimony from business owners and residents alike, The Department of Traffic and Parking responded to item #189108 (That This Board of Aldermen Hereby Requests that the Administration Relax All Newly Instituted Traffic and Parking Initiatives in Magoun Square until the Green Line Arrives in 2015 as the Initiatives Are Devastating Magoun Square’s Business Strength) that it will enforce an 8pm meter time once construction is completed in Magoun Square.

The good news...
In response to item #189111 (that This Board of Aldermen Hereby Requests that the Administration and the Parking Solutions Task Force Remove from Its Mission the Combining of Davis and Magoun Squares in Its Considerations and Deliberations on Traffic and Parking Changes, as Magoun Square is Suffering Desperately from Their Belief that Magoun and Davis Square Share Any Similarities, Especially the Notion of 10:00 PM Parking Meters), Traffic and Parking admitted that it needed to reevaluate the parking situation in Magoun Square before increasing meter-feeding time to 10pm.
