Cosey Beach Parking Problems Persist

A committee will research where to place no parking signs.

It appears there won’t be a quick fix in the ongoing Cosey Beach neighbors’ parking nightmare situation.

Last night, the Senior Center was packed with concerned residents who are fed up with cars illegally clogging up their side streets leading to the beach. People, and likely a lot of out-of-towners, are attracted to East Haven’s beach because it’s the only New Haven County community that doesn’t charge for use of its beach.

At Tuesday’s meeting the Board of Police Commissioners expanded on its plans to form a new subcommittee to look into parking problems. A lot of the no parking signs have disappeared over the year because of storms, the New Haven Register reports. The committee will examine where to place no parking signs, the Register reports.

Additionally, the Police Department has been handing tickets out to people parking illegally at a record pace, Evan Lips reports.

However, fines are $10, and some residents lobbied for that number to be increased dramatically.

Rich the answer is to enforce our existing laws, update them and improve them. Town Hall needs to get its act together with this very long drawn out problem

Didn't we have a police officer at the beach that enforced the towing policy? He was beaten up pretty bad by the last administration for doing his job. Could we go back to having an officer there on a daily basis?

Dave, rumors has it the current police chief has instituted a no-tow policy, blaming it on that DOJ thing. Crazyist thing i ever heard of. Yes, last sat there was a patrol officer walking a "beat" so to speak, and was tagging. But I guess it would take an act of God to have something towed. Interesting to see how he feels about a blocked hydrant or someone can't get to needed medical help for their driveway was blocked and turns to the worse. Mr. Zullo better open up the towns check book.

In addition to the favors and political bs, this weekend East Haven hosted an all star softball game, Lou Pane refused to let those non resident attendees to park in the *resident* parking lot, at the same time, ordered the attendants to allow Sandpiper employees to utilize the same lots for their parking.
