Clarion Borough council approved a motion to advertise ordinance #2021-836 amending the borough traffic ordinance.
The ordinance addresses the parking issue created along 8th Avenue between Madison Road and Liberty Street by a previous ordinance approved in May that would move parking meters from some residential streets, including parts of Liberty Street and Sixth Avenue, to the lot on Liberty Street.
The issue that created a need for the additional ordinance was the planned elimination of parking on the east side of Eighth Avenue in the area of Liberty Street.
Two local residents brought the issue to the council’s attention, contending that the total removal of those parking spaces would be detrimental to some residents living nearby who depend on those spaces. They requested that the council consider making the areas no parking areas only between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and still allow for parking there on evenings and weekends.
The new ordinance will allow for parking on Eighth Avenue from Main Street to Madison Road in the evening hours and on weekends.
The motion to advertise the ordinance was approved in a unanimous vote.
