Smithville’s on-street parking confusion to be cleared up

Monday’s Township of West Lincoln Public Works & Recreation Services Committee meeting should provide long-awaited answers on confusion surrounding Smithville’s on-street parking.

In May, when it became apparent all eight parking spots where Reg. Rd. 20 peels off to Griffin Street would not be restored when the massive core construction work is done, township officials were left scratching their respective heads.

Mayor Doug Joyner said he understood six of the eight spots were to be restored, two were to be removed for safety reasons. This scenario was what Jim Edwards, owner of The Guitar Loft also understood after he attended public meetings last fall.

“This will be an opportunity for all to clarify what has gone on. We will all be on the same page afterwards,” said Coun. Dave Bylsma, who chairs Public Works.

He said town staff will provide an overview of how the project progressed and how the process was handled.

Bylsma noted the general public will be allowed to ask questions and comment on the initiative.

Public Works will come up immediately following the Admin & Finance Committee meeting which will start at 6:30 p.m. June 15. Admin & Finance, typically, lasts an hour to 90 minutes, noted Bylsma.
