MPB Refuses to Approve Parking for Dowd Project

Neighbors,

On 5/19 I spoke before the Municipal Planning Board regarding the Dowd Project on Virginia Drive to urge them to add an additional on-street parallel parking space in front of the building. In spite of our neighborhood’s support of an additional parking space, Dowd’s support of an additional parking space, the City planning department’s support of an additional parking space, and the current City planning documents recommending additional on-street parking along Virginia, I failed to convince the MPB to add this condition. The Traffic Engineer would not support a reduction of the design standard of 23′ length for parallel parking spaces, and our request for the additional space failed.
