Waynesboro limits student parking

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- On-street parking options will be limited for Waynesboro Area Senior High School students this year, due to decisions made this week by the Waynesboro Borough Council.

The council voted unanimously to restrict parking on several streets, only allowing residents with displayed passes to park there. The restrictions will be in effect during daytime hours.

Affected roads are East Third Street from Clayton Avenue to Myrtle Avenue; Myrtle Avenue from Second Street to Third Street; and Virginia Avenue from the fire company to Second Street.

Also, no parking will be permitted on the south side of East Second Street from Myrtle Avenue to Enterprise Avenue.

"With the driveway entrances and cars going in and out, there are sight problems," said Councilman Ronnie Martin, who suggested the changes.


In August 2008, the council made the west side of Myrtle Avenue permit-parking only from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays between Second and Third Streets.

Residents from affected neighborhoods will be sent letters asking them how many permits they want, Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said.

Councilman Jason Stains questioned whether the parking restrictions would push student vehicles onto other streets, particularly Clayton Avenue. Martin said parking issues can be revisited at any time.

"This will be year-round," he said.

The school district's business administrator, Caroline Dean, previously told The Herald-Mail the school will have 125 additional parking spaces when it opens for the 2009-10 academic year.
