NORWALK, Conn. – This is a press release, presented in a slightly altered format from which it was sent:

 

Daily Parking Soon Available at East Norwalk Railroad Station

 

Norwalk, CT (March 14, 2018)  – The Norwalk Parking Authority has announced that it has entered into a temporary arrangement with the state on the eastbound side of the East Norwalk Train Station, allowing it to offer additional daily parking. The 117 newly available spaces are located alongside the tracks and the building. These spaces are temporary and for daily parkers only, not permit parkers. The Parking Authority will be monitoring daily activity and capacity and may offer to monthly parkers as well at a later date. 

            The cost of daily parking in these spots will be $8 per day, and will be available as of April 1, 2018. Daily customers will need to use the pay-by-cell app Parkmobile for payment.  The zone number to use in Parkmobile will be 2034.

            These spaces will be available up until the State of Connecticut needs them during the East Avenue Bridge Improvement Project. The State has not set a definite date when the bridge project will begin, but the Parking Authority expects that it will be sometime in 2020-2021. The Parking Authority is also working with the owner of the building and surrounding area to offer additional parking in the near and long term.

            The Norwalk Parking Authority, comprised of five local citizens appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Common Council, is a financially self-sustaining organization responsible for the operation and maintenance of the municipal parking system in Norwalk. Its annual budget is not financed by taxpayer dollars. In addition to the oversight, operations, security and maintenance of the city’s parking system and facilities, the Parking Authority works to promote and support economic development in Norwalk and provide opportunities to the community through new programs, new technologies, including smart parking, and collaboration with community organizations and businesses. The Norwalk Parking Authority can be reached at (203) 831-9063 or at the website, www.norwalkpark.org.

Once again the City ignores the needs of those who are disadvantaged economically and/or on the wrong side of the digital divide, by providing no ability to pay unless someone is both banked and has a cell phone.

There is ample information surrounding the proposed #11-17R Zone Change request for the Spinnaker construction next to the railroad that puts the start date for the East Avenue Bridge work will be 2019.

I wonder about the NPA. They seem to wholly @ their AUTHORITY with little regard to the commuters needs and priorities. The East Norwalk hodgepodge of parking options is confusing, demeaning and physically demanding. Signage is inadequate and requires a careful study of jurisdiction….
The elite class of drivers they attempt to serve are merely lemmings to their inadequate services provided. The wait for parking permits is unexplainable. Why?
