Parking changes to help Square

Continue reading below

Braintree officials said several changes to parking lots and parking times should help ease congestion in South Braintree Square. According to Peter Morin, chief of staff and operations, the municipal parking lot in the square was resurfaced and restriped to add six spaces and clarify the lot’s boundaries. Additionally, parking times have been reduced inside the lot and for street parking. Enforcement of the parking times will coincide with ticketing MBTA commuter rail riders who park all day in the lot at French Avenue and Pearl Street. “There is a nine-space small lot, or parking area, where some T riders would just park all day, and merchants have asked us to enforce there, as well as on Pearl,” Morin said. Shop employees will also be parking elsewhere to free up some spaces. “I think Marta Googins, from the [Braintree] Business Council, she acknowledged that it’s a step in the right direction.” Morin said the parking problem was essentially a good one to have, as it indicated the uptick in the local economy. “You’re not seeing vacant storefronts, there is a good level of activity and that drives traffic,” Morin said.
