    Proposed dedicated curbside space for commercial vehicles

    Community members and DOT staff have observed double parking by commercial vehicles at this site, which leads to safety and congestion issues. Dedicated curbside space for commercial vehicles would alleviate the need for double parking. Locations were chosen based on extensive interviews with merchants and trucking companies. These commercial spaces are part of an overall parking management strategy.

  1. Edmund:

    Unfortunately, Trade Fair is not playing fair, their former loading zone has been removed on 75th Street, and the new munimeter seems to be covered with a garbage bag. This is very suspicious, and many people who park there are unaware of the meter, and do not go across the street to pay at that munimeter and have been ticketed.
