PORT WASHINGTON (WITI) — It’s frustrating when you can’t find a place to park. But one city recently got a surprise. After a parking analysis was done, Port Washington learned it has too many parking spaces.
Mayor Tom Mlada says there are usually two schools of thought about parking in Port Washington.
“One side of the extreme may be that some people feel as if we didn’t have enough and others felt like we had way too much,” said Mlada.
The city’s business improvement district decided to settle the dispute and requested a study be done.
Overall, the study found Port Washington has more parking that it needs. But the study also found the really high traffic areas, where people sometimes have trouble snagging a spot, could be used more effectively to alleviate that problem.
