Councilor Kenrick Brackett met with the media on Tuesday, September, 5, 2012, to explain about the recommended vehicle types and sizes. Traffic flow and congestion on the island is in a bad state and Brackett explained that the committee believes that by standardizing the size and type of vehicles being imported into the island the problem can be alleviated, to a certain extent. Below are the recommended sizes that the committee may entertain when applying. This does not mean that the application will be automatically approved and the committee will not entertain applications for vehicles that exceed the following recommended sizes.

Also announced during the meeting was that as of November 15, 2012, only half hour parking will be allowed on Barrier Reef and Pescador Drive. Traffic wardens will be assigned to closely monitor these two main streets to properly implement this new law. As to other options for where businesses and residents can park their vehicles during the working day, there has not been any given by the Town Council.

Size recommendations make a certain amount of sense, but I think the 30-minute parking is a mistake - (I for one cannot enjoy a nice lunch in under 30 minutes, and when we have a meeting at the Town Board what are we to do - run out a few minutes after it starts?)
This is going to cost a lot of money to enforce.

Good place for all those old penny nickle dime parking meters from the US. Perfect place for us to use up our change. HA!

What about the cross Streets between Front and Middle Street? Are they to take all of the all day long parking for both Streets?

Until they provide a secure parking lot, this could be a problem. Maybe they should sell a certain number of parking permits for front street?

I think these are just baby steps to a vehicle free Front Street.

Then they will definately need to provide a safe and convenient parking lot somewhere.
Those that work on front street will spend all day circling around looking for a parking space so they can go to work.

Councilor Brackett has set guidelines long overdue and I am glad to hear of the move, the size of the approved vehicles seem to grow each year, they may not get everything right but at least they have a plan and share it with the community

I was rather hoping SPTC would set a few rules about exporting more than a few vehicles... whistle
