Pittsfield Traffic Commission Makes South Church Street Changes
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Traffic Commission approved the elimination of "No Parking" on a portion of South Church Street and the removal of a taxicab stand.
The commission held a brief meeting on Thursday to approve some requests from the mayor's office referred to it by the City Council.
City Engineer Ricardo Morales said these changes are really preparing the street for future work.
"We are essentially allowing with these, parking on the street," he said. "We want to widen the street."
He said eventually they would like to install bike lanes on the st.
As for the taxi stand, Morales said it goes back to the 1970s and there really is no use for it anymore.
The commission did file a request from Police Capt. Kirchner requesting that "Police Vehicle Parking Only" signs are installed on School Street.
Chairman Mark Brennan said they have discussed this possibility in the past and that City Councilor Peter Marchetti said it is just not possible.
There is little parking around the police station.
