City revisits Crescent Park, Fourth Ave. permit parking

Proposed permit parking for Crescent Park and Fourth Ave. is on hold.

Warren City Council established a committee to revisit parking issues during Monday’s meeting.

Councilman John Wortman asked that a January decision on parking be revisited at the April meeting.

Back in January, council signed off on the creation of permit parking spaces on Fourth Ave. and Crescent Park.

The move created an additional 115 permit spaces, similar to the permit spaces on the river-side of the 400 block of Pennsylvania Ave. West.

The spaces will be located on Crescent Park between Onondaga Ave.and Main Ave. – 60 spaces in total – while an additional 55 will be permitted on Fourth Ave. between Hickory St. and Market St.

Police Chief Brandon Deppen said in January that the move would “aid in regulating weekday use.”

Wortman proposed a “possible look at parking in general” and Mayor Maurice Cashman proposed that council create a committee to discuss parking issues, work with city staff and “report back to city council when you’re ready.”

Wortman, Christian Zavinski and Phil Gilbert agreed to serve on the committee.

Cashman asked city administration to hold off, then, on the previously-approved permit parking proposal.
