After a flurry of emails, conversations,a nd lobbying, the UNA Board of Directors has reversed their decision to impose a 24/7 ban on all parking in the Hawthorn Place neighbourhood. Parking restrictions will be in place for the new term, but now it will be one that respects the many years of community consultation and involvement. On street parking will be regulated during the weekday business hours and will finally stop the freeloader student/staff/faculty parking on our neighbourhood streets. The changes to the parking plan can be found in a tersely worded statement emailed to the UNA parking working group December 8.
We all thank the UNA elected directors for listening and reconsidering their position!
