The Board of Selectmen voted last week to approve the Belmont Center parking management plan, which is projected to net the town about $135,000 annually by increasing parking revenues. The plan, developed over the course of a year by transportation consulting firm Nelson Nygaard, outlines a series of steps for the town to follow to increase parking availability in Belmont Center and to increase revenue for the town from paid parking. The vote gives Jay Szklut, Belmont’s planning and economic development manager, the chance to start working on how to implement the changes. Parking in Belmont Center is scarce, especially on residential streets, and fees vary widely. Under the plan, spaces closest to Belmont Center would cost more than spots farther away. The plan also calls for new signs to show drivers where they can park. The additional parking revenues will be put back into Belmont Center’s development.
