  1. Since the State bans parking within x feet of a crosswalk, is it really necessary to have 2 crosswalks across Elm St at the South Ave intersection? Couldn’t we eliminate one (the west one?) to allow more parking?

    • So Barbara, from what I remember public works officials saying, that requirement you’re referring to — to have a no-parking zone within 25 feet of the crosswalk — will be eliminated under this plan, because the bump-outs will effectively prevent motor vehicles from backing into the crosswalks themselves.
