Rye residents are gathering with officials tonight to discuss how to reduce the overflow of cars in Rye Town Park during the summer months.
Area residents are known to be unhappy with the overflow parking situation in the summer, when cars are parked across much of the upper grassy area of the park alongside Forest Avenue. In an announcement just a few weeks ago from Rye resident and Rye Town Park assistant director for park development Bill Lawyer, 2009 park revenue was projected to be up by at least $40,000 over 2008 with parking revenue up by nearly $100,000. That's a lot of cars.
The meeting is open to residents and will be attended by various officials including Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin, Rye Mayor Steve Otis (if he's back from Albany in time), Rye Mayor-elect Doug French, Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla and several current as well as incoming Rye City Council members.
Rye Town Park meeting: Tuesday, November 10th at 7:00-8:30 pm at 365 Rye Beach Avenue (corner of Forest Avenue) Optional RSVP: Caroline Walker CCTWalker@optonline.net.
