Playground Parking - For Whom?

About a year ago, plans to increase parking at the Madison Avenue playground provoked suspicion at the Planning Board. Click here for Plaintalker's post on the discussion.

The idea of allowing a developer to lease parking spaces at a city playground perturbed planners, as it should have. A study was made and a redevelopment plan was adopted for a vacant lot across the street from the playground. The plan envisioned 12 condos on the site, but there was no room for parking. According to a Redevelopment Status report issued in February, no developer had yet been named. Now that the new parking lot is completed, let's see whether a developer comes along.

Just passed by the new playground and parking lot this morning. The parking area appears smaller than it used to, not larger. The playground area and the parking lot both look very attractive.
