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.

Parking Officials Consider Issuing Additional Lot Permits for Downtown Workers

The downtown workers still parking on Main and Elm Streets—even after special permits were made available for purchase to get them off—likely never will change their habits, the head of New Canaan’s Parking Bureau said at a recent meeting. According to Stacy Miltenberg, the 40 employees of businesses in the heart of New Canaan’s business district who purchased permits that allow them to park at either the Park Street or Morse Court lots are delighted with them are “so happy with them and they’re utilizing them.”

Yet others “are never going to take a permit, no matter what we do,” she told members of the Parking Commission at their Sept. 14 meeting, held in Town Hall. “I saw this with one of the people at the shops. I can’t tell you how many times I told her there were permits available and she just continued to get tickets and tickets, and then she comes in frustrated because she keeps getting tickets.

Officials Void $25 Ticket for Woman Who Parked Too Long on Elm Street

New Canaan’s Parking Commission voided a $25 overtime parking ticket at its most recent meeting after a Stamford woman said she wasn’t aware of Elm Street’s 90-minute parking limit and that there was no visible sign in front of the space where she parked her vehicle. Dr. Cheryl Gross provided a detailed account to the volunteer commission of how she parked her car on Elm Street on June 26 to attend a movie at The Playhouse with her parents and children. “I drove down South [Avenue] and made a left-hand turn [onto Elm Street] and parked in the first parking spot on the left-hand side,” she said. “There was this huge concrete structure [in front] that I think had flowers in it…I just remember thinking that we might bump our doors on it while getting out. It was a very tight fit.”

Gross noted that while she did see the structure, which Parking Superintendent Stacey Miltenberg explained was used to block off the Pop-Up Park, she didn’t notice any parking signs. Continue Reading →
