East Hampton Village announced on Wednesday that it would seek suggestions about how to improve parking regulations in its shopping district. Anyone interested in weighing in or listening to others do so has been invited to an informal discussion at 7 p.m. on March 22 in the Emergency Services Building on Cedar Street.
In the past, business owners, employees and customers who use public parking have suggested everything from instituting paid parking to lengthening the time period for parking in the Reutershan and Schenck lots and on Main Street and Newtown Lane. Employees’ use of spaces that merchants would like to be available to customers has repeatedly been described as a problem.
The East Hampton Village Board is not proposing any changes at the moment, only offering an opportunity to comment.
Those who cannot attend the meeting have been invited to relay their thoughts to Village Administrator Larry Cantwell at 324-4150, extension 15, Village Hall, 86 Main Street, East Hampton, New York 11937 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
