Dormont Council to Vote on Parking Issues
Council meets today, Monday, at 7 p.m.
Dormont Council plans to vote today on several recommendations proposed by the Traffic and Parking Planning Commission, to include removing the borough’s ability to lease parking spaces to business owners.
Last week, George Pitcher of the Planning Commission told council the commission recommended that the leasing arrangement not be renewed or considered effective after the first six months it was enforced.
He said members had spoken with business owners, residents and the police department about the issue before making that decision.
“We felt that if it continued, there would be a number of parking spaces that would be taken away from the other business patrons and the public for parking,” he said.
Pitcher said they also recommend that the borough promote where the public parking lots in the borough are located and when it’s legal to park on West Liberty Avenue to help avoid confusion.
The commission also made recommendations regarding a traffic calming program for the borough, rush hour parking on West Liberty Avenue and placement of a stop sign on Hillsdale at the intersection with Crosby.
Council plans to vote on those recommendations at today's meeting.
Council meets today, Monday, at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at Dormont Municipal Center on Hillsdale Avenue. The agenda is attached to this article as a PDF document.
