The town last week approved a $13,000 contract for an Avon-based company to design a newly configured parking lot that sits alongside the water towers at Waveny.
The rough, milled lot located between softball diamonds and new turf fields at the edge of the high school—above to the Summer Theatre of New Canaan area—is to be upgraded so that there’s a newly paved drive into it from the main road through Waveny and a larger parking area, according to Public Works Director Tiger Mann. “It’s always been a mess,” Mann told the Board of Selectmen at its regular meeting, held Aug. 21 at Town Hall. “People park haphazardly, on the grass, wherever they want.”
First Selectman Kevin Moynihan and Selectmen Kit Devereaux and Nick Williams voted 3-0 in favor of a contract with Richter & Cegan, an urban planning firm, to design and provide cost estimates for the project. Funding for the actual work would come after the study.
