Parking along Beachway Park will now be restricted to users of the beach. Staff recently installed 12 signs in the municipal parking lots along Beachway Park indicating exclusive use of the parking for beach users.
‘No Parking Tow Away Zone’ signs are also being posted where laneways exist in the parking lots.
Before the signs went up, notices were placed on each car in the parking lot (approximately 180 notices) to warn users that Tagging and Towing would start May 20.
The change is In response to complaints from a number of Beachway Park users that parking was being taken up by construction workers and employees at Joseph Brant Hospital. (See Ask the Councillor)
My Take: I support this move and commend staff on their actions. The parking here is intended for Beachway Park users, not as overflow for commercial uses in the area. I’d also like to thank residents for calling in their concerns – your feedback made a difference and led to this outcome which will help beach users.
