“A year-round gift we all use.”
Residents of Provincetown, MA are upset that a proposed bike lane and traffic calming project calls for the elimination of 26 parking spots.
“Parking spaces are a year-round gift that we all use,” said Chris McCarthy, resident of 54 Bradford St., to applause. McCarthy, who is executive director of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, said that while she is not opposed to bicycle safety, she cannot reconcile the 12-month need for parking with the four- or five-month need for bike lanes. The bicycle committee’s plan pitted “a year-round community versus a seasonal amenity,” she said.
