LAKE PLACID - This village's Board of Trustees will host a public hearing next month to discuss traffic and parking issues on Parkside Drive.
The relatively short village street runs from Main Street near the Adirondack Community Church to the intersection with Morningside Drive.
"I want to find some long range solutions to parking issues on Parkside Drive," Randall said at Monday's board of trustees meeting. "I want the village to set up a community discussion. ... I think it would be helpful for the board to hear that dialogue."
Randall said some residents on "lower" Parkside (from the North Elba Town Hall to Morningside Drive) want the village to make it one-way traffic, while property owners on the "upper" section want it to remain a two-way street. The lower section has more residential homes, and the upper section is bordered on one side by the lake and park land.
The mayor also hopes to address the parking situation, specifically on the upper end, where parking is currently free. Randall said the village may want to consider putting in time limits to keep spots open for visitors to the beach. Metered parking is also an option, he said.
The hearing is set for 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 in the first floor meeting room at the North Elba Town Hall, to follow the board's regular meeting at 5:30 p.m.
