Parking on Russel Court soon
February 27, 2010
The Woodstock City Council is set to allow parking on the north side of Russel Court, between Highway 47 and the entrance to the courthouse parking lot. It's about time.
If I recall correctly, parking used to be permitted there. Then it was prohibited. Now it'll be back, if the Council approves a proposed change in the parking ordinance on Tuesday night.
Will it be unrestricted, day-long parking, or will the Council set a one-hour or two-hour limit on parking? (If that's the case, then it's a revenue-generating move, because late arrivals at the courthouse are going to be in there for a while.)
There have been a few days when the courthouse parking lot has been full, and snowplowing in the lot has eliminated many parking spaces after particularly heavy snowfalls. A few spaces on Russel Court will be helpful, but they won't accommodate the entire shortage of parking spaces, when the plows cover so many spaces.
Permitting this parking is a good decision.
