Agree - my parking concern was more on behalf of the new tenants (40 new housing units vying for 23 garage spaces) and existing residents who have to park on the street now, with less competition.

I disagree about the current location of Talbot Ave in front of the church being used only by commuters. I see the opposite happening - during the day it's generally empty with plenty of on-street parking along Talbot, but at night it begins to fill up. Some nights the street is nearly full, but I've never had an issue getting on-street parking in the general area either time. If we want to consider resident parking as has been suggested, I'd recommend implementing evening/overnight hours with visitor parking spaces mixed in.

If resident parking is implemented, it would make sense to ensure the retail/community space gets some designated time-limit spaces in front of the building.

I agree completely - really looking forward to seeing this project reinvigorate this area of the community!

I'm sure the developers understand that Argyle is a one way street and there would be a traffic flow conflict from Arglye to Talbot and the other direction. Specifically, see how all vehicles park on Talbot in front of 516 to 502. They are facing the church as this is the normal flow of traffic. But this conflicts with the flow of traffic from Argyle. I would like to see what any proposal looks like before it gets approved. I am a direct abutter of the project and have concerns about traffic flow and accessibility. I am 100% against using the current no parking center area as future parking. A few years ago it was being used for that purpose (before they added more lines to show it was a no parking zone). The snow removal was atrocious and often, people would park there and never get towed. That caused additional issues including accessing our building. I am open to using a smaller portion of the space for a parklet or to formally add more on-street parking (going around the existing curve of the curb). Please let us know when there are proposals of what it could be before things get implemented. Thank you!
