Medford wants to change its residential on-street parking permit program to “address the concerns and needs of residents in neighborhoods with high parking demand,” according to a statement from Mayor Stephanie Burke.
The city is seeking public input on any proposed changes. The Traffic Commission is holding three public workshops. The first one, focused on discussing options for improvement, is taking place on Thursday, February 16 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the Council Chambers at Medford City Hall. The Traffic Commission will share best practices and similar parking programs in other communities and will seek public input on these programs as well as residents’ parking concerns.
“All potential options are on the table. The City’s goal is to be as practical, actionable, and cost effective as possible, while taking into account the needs of all of the diverse members of our community,” said a statement from Mayor Burke.
A second workshop will be held in South Medford and the final workshop to discuss the proposed program for “future adoption by the Traffic Commission” will be held in the spring.
