New parking restrictions on Woodside Road?

Original post made on Jul 27, 2009

Tuesday: The Woodside Town Council will consider no-parking signs on Woodside Road at its Tuesday, July 28, meeting. Driving -- and walking and biking -- can be tough on Woodside Road in Woodside during the school year. Bike lanes fill with vehicles dropping off or picking up kids at school.

It's about time! This is a no-brainer. The current situation is extremely dangerous for everyone. It's marked as a bike lane on both sides of the road, so why allow anyone to park there at all? Put up some signs, get the deputies out there to write tickets and clean up the area so it is safe. If some people have to park farther away and walk a bit, that seems a reasonable price for safety.

While I agree that there needs to be something done, you just can't put up signs if there is no where for anyone to go and park elsewhere. There needs to be a parking lot or structure somewhere and behind Roberts Hardware, mini mall, might be a good place to add a two story (at least) structure and get rid of the fire hazard that is currantly there.
