On School Street Parking

        The East Hampton Town Board will hear comments from the public tonight about plans for new parking regulations along School Street in Springs, developed in concert with the Springs School.

    According to the proposal, parking would be prohibited between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on school days along a stretch from the corner of Springs-Fireplace Road toward the school, on the school side of the street, with a short section of “no stopping, no standing” adjacent to the school driveway. Parking would also be prohibited, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, from the intersection of Ed Hults Lane and School Street toward Old Stone Highway.

    On the Pussy’s Pond side of the street, a two-hour limit on parking would be instituted all day Monday through Friday from Old Stone Highway toward the school. In the area directly across from the school to Sand Lot Road, stopping and standing would be prohibited at all times.

    Cars would be allowed to park for one hour during school hours on the school side of the street, in the area between Ed Hults Lane and the school driveway. In addition, left turns onto School Street from Ed Hults Lane would be prohibited between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. and 3 to 3:30 p.m. during drop-off and pick-up times, and a stop sign would be installed at that intersection.

    The hearing will begin at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
