Selectmen are considering a request to ban parking on Bachelor Street during the summer. Thomas Flaherty, representing the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners, said residents have expressed concerns about parked cars narrowing the roadway and creating a potentially dangerous situation during ballgames and on sunny summer days when families are using Action Cove playground. There can be as many as 50 vehicles parked in that area at a given time, Flaherty said. The town’s Housing Authority has agreed to keep the gates between the upper parking lot and the ball field parking lot open for a trial period of six months. The gates were being kept closed for safety reasons, according to selectmen. The Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners plans to put up a sign informing people that they should not park on the street or outside the Action Cove gates, but instead in the ball field lot, or if necessary, the upper lot. Selectmen have taken the request to ban parking on the public street under advisement.
