Today we have a MyRye.com citizens report and update on Rye Town Park by Rye resident Caroline Walker. Walker hosted 50 citizens at her home in November to discuss concerns around overflow parking.

I just want to give you an update on our progress on Rye Town Park safety issues — as you might remember, we've created a Rye Town Park Task Force and we are having our second meeting on January 21st to finalize our recommendations that we will present to the Rye Town Park Commission at their February meeting (they have told us the tentative date is Thursday Feb. 11th). The recommendations will follow along these lines…
1) Proposing the installation of barriers to create a safe and secure separation between pedestrians and cars
2) Reducing the number of cars in the park
3) Streamlining operations and adopting best practices
4) Analyzing and revisiting beach and parking pricing by benchmarking against our peer beaches.
