Selectmen Approve Contract To Bring New 2-Hour Parking Signs to Downtown New Canaan; Time Limit Change To Take Effect When They’re In Place

Officials on Tuesday approved a contract with a Danbury-based company to create and install 80 signs in and around downtown New Canaan that will make all legal on-street parking two hours. Members of the Board of Selectmen voted 3-0 at their regular meeting to green-light the contract with NY-CONN Corporation. “Directionally this is good—if you were going from two [hours] to one or 90 minutes, then there would be a number of complaints,” Selectman Nick Williams said at the meeting, held in Town Hall. He voted in favor of the $16,779 contract with First Selectman Kevin Moynihan and Selectman Kit Devereaux. The installation of new 2-hour parking signs will realize a recommendation from the Parking Commission two months ago that was followed by a formal vote by the Police Commission. Continue Reading →

Parking Commission Votes 3-1 To Uphold Ticket for Man Who Overstayed at Morse Court During Eye Doctor Visit

Parking Commission members at their most recent meeting voted 3-1 to uphold a $20 ticket for a man who claimed to have been held up unexpectedly at the eye doctor. The split decision came after Yong Sung Kim made his case at the commission’s Nov. 9 meeting. Kim said he paid for about one hour at the Morse Court parking lot to visit a Main Street optometrist, but that when he got to the doctor’s office, “there were two or three people ahead of me and basically I was just waiting.”

He asked the receptionist how long he’d have to wait to see the eye doctor and was told “soon,” Kim recalled. Then, the staff there put some eye drops into Kim’s eyes and when he said that he had to, told him that it was “too dangerous to go downstairs” until his vision cleared, he told the commissioners at the meeting, held in Town Hall.

Officials To Renew $10 Fee for Commuters Seeking Parking Permits To Remain on Waitlists

Town officials last week voted to institute again a $10 fee for commuters seeking to retain their places on waitlists for coveted municipal parking permits in New Canaan. Following approval from the selectmen, the New Canaan Parking Bureau last fall sent out 1,281 letters to those on any of three waiting lists for the Richmond Hill, Talmadge Hill and Lumberyard Lots, according to Parking Superintendent Stacy Miltenberg. The idea was to “clean up” the lists by dropping anyone who had moved out of town or otherwise had no reason to remain on them, and it worked, Miltenberg said. “This year, 636 [letters] are going out,” she told members of the Parking Commission at their Nov. 9 meeting, held at Town Hall.

Did You Hear … ?

A long-vacant New Canaan home cited for blight three summers ago finally has been sold.
