The New Seasons Effect: An Update on Parking

The view from aboveAn earlier post surveyed effects on traffic and parking after three weeks of News Seasons on Woodstock Blvd.

At the most recent Woodstock Neighborhood Association meeting, New Seasons manager Mark Feuerborn reported good news about employee parking: KeyBank agreed to let New Seasons employees park in its lot — except on Farmers Market days, of course. Fifteen to 20 employees (out of New Seasons’ daily staff of 35 to 40) arrive by car, so the arrangement should reduce the burden on nearby streets just a bit.

Next up: delivery trucks

Mark also shared that the store is looking at how to reduce the impact of delivery trucks. One effect cited in an earlier comment is that delivery trucks lined up on SE Martins reduce visibility, leading to more sudden interactions between people in cars and people on foot or on bike.

Stay tuned for further updates.
