There's an important meeting tonight at City Hall -- yes, I know that most Middletown Eye readers are focused on the 7 pm Common Council meeting (which has the Army Base on the agenda) - and by all means, don't miss it! But there's also a meeting-before-the-meeting, at 6 pm, that will present the conclusions of the Parking Study that has been in process for the past 18 months or so.
In a series of 25 community meetings, the Parking Study Sub-Committee (I'm on that) came up with a plan to improve the long and short-term parking issues of downtown. Also in the mix were some attempts to address transit issues in town, particularly making Middletown more bike-friendly and the potential of using federal funds to put a trolley-on-tracks on Main Street.
If you are concerned about the health of our downtown and the transit issues that face our city, please join us in the Council Chambers.
