Opposition Forming Against New Parking Lot

Residents of the area around High and Danforth Street are organizing to oppose the development of the green space at the corner of High and Danforth Streets into paved parking for USM students. A petition being circulated in the neighborhood has garnered more than 100 signatures.

Coyne's Laundromat on Danforth Street (across from the green space) hasagreed to have petitions at their counter space for residents to sign.

The issue will be dealt with at the next Portland Planning Board meeting on Tuesday, July 24. The Planning Board will make recommendations to the Portland City Council. West End City Councilor David Marshall has expressed opposition to the parking lot, which would accommodate 14 cars.
