3. Case No. 12-032MA – Creation of expansion parking area (Master/Preliminary Plan reiew) The applicant is seeking to increase the capacity of an existing parking lot from 36 to 96 spaces to accommodate the growth of a business on a proximate lot. The applicant is requesting to combine master and preliminary stages of review – for action (Olneyville, AP 33 (.pdf) Lots 322, 345, 350, 351, 395, 624, 654, 656)
Item number 3, the expanded parking in Olneyville. That is on Valley Street, quite literally on the banks of the Woonasquatucket in an area of the city that saw the worst flooding in 2010 and in fact flooded just last week during a random thunderstorm. The last thing that area needs is more parking lots.
I thought the CPC already said NO to no more parking at that site. Are they coming back now that there’s changes in planning and on the CPC since then, or is this a whole other project?
