The View from Ward 2: Issue #30

Express Parking Resolution

The Express Parking Resolution, introduced by Councilmembers Sarah Kepple & Tom Bullock, was passed at last week’s City Council meeting. This resolution formalizes the process in which a business can request an express parking space in certain circumstances (e.g., a reserved parking spot in front of a business for customers picking up carry out orders), and also makes the distribution of these spots more equitable. Council recognized that due to Covid-19, Lakewood’s restaurants and retailers have increasingly relied on pickup services. Express parking spots will facilitate these quick transactions by ensuring that a space is available nearby the business for short-term use. 

Lake Avenue Restriping

The Lake Avenue restriping project is still ongoing but is nearing completion.  Please be sure to pay attention to bikers and to the new road markings, including street parking. Cars are only permitted to park on the north side of Lake Avenue in designated areas. Cars that have been parked on the south side of Lake Ave. have interfered with the completion of the lane installation. Additionally, parking on the south side of Lake Ave. effectively eliminates the new bike lane, interfering with bicycle traffic and making biking and driving more treacherous. The City has requested Cleveland Barricade to install new signs that will indicate that parking is not permitted, and vehicles will be towed. The signs will be installed on the south side of Lake from Webb to Cove.
