North Reading to Build Additional Parking Spaces at Third Meeting House

Residents voted to create additional parking spaces at the Third Meeting House at Town Meeting.

This is the last in a series of articles that will be posted about Town Meeting:

Residents voted in favor of a parking lot expansion at the Third Meeting House Monday night at Town Meeting. Both the Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee unanimoulsy recommended the article.

According to Selectman Steve O'Leary, due to the recent improvements made to the Third Meeting House including the new rain garden and new curbing, parking spaces were lost. The town would like to construct new parking spaces on the east side of the building.

Member of the Community Planning Commission Patricia Romeo asked that the parking spaces not be built, "because we keep eating away from the little bit of town common that we have left."

Several residents agreed with Romeo and voted against the article, but it still passed with majority vote.
