Parking changes

This proposal would result in the loss of approximately 4 parking spaces, 2 spaces to the north and 2 spaces to the south of the street for the required statutory “No Stopping” zones in Denman Avenue to accommodate the pedestrian crossing. Vehicle access to adjoining properties will remain.
