Less than 2 weeks ago, Crescent Road was under siege. Overflow parking, trash and noise from the new Terrain was making life unbearable for residents of that once-quiet street looping peacefully behind the new store, from McDonald’s to the fire station.
Cliff Montagna wrote “06880.” Calmly but none-too-pleasedly, he stated his case.
Almost instantly, the police and Planning and Zoning went to work. Today, Cliff emailed this:
Just wanted to post an update on the very improved situation here on Crescent Road.
Our school bus can now get down Crescent Road. There is no more parking up and down the road or in our driveways.
I do think we should consider petitioning the P&Z to activate the 47 reserve parking spaces for this site. There are 6 or 7 parking spots around back that are filled in with storage items and unable to be used, and the Terrain staff employs a valet parking system as the existing parking is just not adequate. It’s a thought.
Thanks again, Dan.
Well, I’d like to take credit. But the praise goes to our police department, the folks at P&Z, and Terrain’s management.
Hey, Washington: Are you listening? This is the way government and the private sector are supposed to work.
It’s called “common sense.” And “cooperation.”
