City Council approves new overnight parking policy, institutes new 4-way stop

NORWICH – In light of recommendations made by the Traffic Commission at this month's Joint Committee meeting on Oct. 4, the Common Council approved a new overnight parking policy as well as the institution of a 4-way stop at the intersection of Grove Avenue and Maydole Street during their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening.

The Council passed a motion to amend the No Overnight Parking policy from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., to 12 a.m. to 6 a.m., in an effort to assist with the clearing of snow from the streets. This will take effect beginning on November 1 through April 15.

City of Norwich Alderman Ward 5 David Zieno asked if this was merely a seasonal change or if this was changing the original policy, to which Police Chief Rodney Marsh responded that the policy used to begin at 2 a.m. but the amendment would allow snow plows more time to clear the streets of snow.
