Some changes to downtown parking in Wallaceburg will be up for discussion on Monday night, July 15 at the Municipality of Chatham-Kent Council meeting.

Wallaceburg Councillor Carmen McGregor will discuss a notice of motion she has presented, which includes a number of adjustments to the traffic and parking by-law.

Some of the changes recommended in McGregor’s motion, include:

– Convert the three on-street parking spaces on the north side of James Street immediately east of Nelson Street to two accessible permit spaces, in accordance with provincial legislation and as requested by the
Wallaceburg Adult Adult Activity Centre.

– Senior Pedestrian crossing signs be installed in the area of the Adult
Centre along James Street.

– Convert the on-street parking spaces along Nelson Street between Wellington Street and Elizabeth Street from a 1-hour limit to a 2-hour
limit.

– Convert the existing 12 public parking spaces in Municipal Parking Lot ‘K’ from a 2-hour limit to a 3-hour limit.

– Investigate the use of Kinette Park on Fork Street for extra parking spaces to add to parking lot O.

“The above recommendations will include communication with the Wallaceburg BIA and local affected business owners,” McGregor said.

If McGregor’s motion receives approval, she is hoping for staff to report back to Council at the August 12 meeting.
