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.Read the full New Haven Register story here.
