Shawmut Parking Issues
Dave Du Bois Franklin Café Vice Pres. Tremont Bus Assoc.
Seeking our support -
Ticketing during loading and unloading has become out of control on Shawmut. The Mayor is creating more pressure to ticket double parking on Tremont and Shawmut Ave. There is no loading zone on Shawmut and the 2 hour parking spots are creating a big problem with cars not moving.
Update on Parcel 8
Monday night Community Meeting 6-8pm Final public review to be held at the Cyclorama, 539 Tremont Street.
Memorandum of Understanding has been signed; all the environmental clean-up issues have been resolved. Public comment period has been extended to April 25th.
Community concerns Loading dock on Warren Ave will be closed to all except for loading large Art objects. Loading areas will be in the Druker garage for large trucks, Tremont Street will have two loading zones. BTD will do cutaways on Tremont Street, first loading dock will be large enough for 2 24ft trucks and there will be a loading area for cars and small trucks in front of restaurant.
Resident parking- there will be a net gain of 50 resident spaces for South End residents within the garage.
Another loading zone will be created in front of the Ballet and there will be a loading/unloading zone on the side of the Ballet on Warren. All will revert to resident at night.
Update on Tremont Street Shines
