A bid to restrict parking on one of Belleville’s east end streets has failed to make it through the process.
Earlier this year city council put restrictions on parking on some streets near Belleville General Hospital.
A resident had written to city hall, concerned about what the person called “increased on-street parking on Queen Street.”
In a report to city council this week, Senior Project Manager Barry Simpson indicated he visited Queen Street twice during September.
Simpson said while it is not unreasonable to think some of the parked vehicles could be hospital users, there did not seem to be a significant on-street parking issue.
Councillor Egerton Boyce indicated he would not support the motion to restrict parking on Queen.
Councillor Jack Miller said he had a “problem with parking restrictions.”
He pointed out the majority of parked cars on Queen Street were around Robin Jeffrey Park and he had a concern about accessibility to the park.
The motion to restrict the parking went down to defeat.
