Town asks for parking report

Sidney residents concerned about Mills Road congestion

Staff from the Town of Sidney will compile a report on parking in the area of Mills Road and surrounding neighbourhoods, after residents in the area expressed concern that plans for a seniors facility would add to an existing problem.

Speakers Monday night are worried that construction traffic and vehicles owned by residents and staff of a proposed seniors care facility on Mills Road, will use the street — as do local residents. It will, they say, add to congestion problems exacerbated by existing care facilities and homeowners.

Council advanced a motion to allow the care facility to have fewer parking spaces than required under existing bylaws. Yet, coun. Mervyn Lougher-Goodey said parking is a concern and he wants staff to determine what the impact will be.

Council agreed and passed a motion to get that report underway.

Blake Mooney, a proponent of the care facility, said he’s meeting with neighbours to resolve issues over construction noise and parking as well.
