ARUNDEL — The board of selectmen, on Monday night, decided to move forward with plans to install five gravel parking spaces at the Eastern Trail access point on Limerick Road.
The zoning ordinance that pertains to Limerick Road prohibits parking at the Eastern Trail access point. Residents will have to vote in a special town meeting to change the road ordinance before construction can begin.
“The construction of the parking spaces isn’t really the issue as much as the changing the ordinance that would legally change the right to park there,” said Town Planner Tad Redway.
Public Works Director Roger Taschereau presented to the selectmen at the Feb. 24 meeting the possibility of paved or gravel spaces.
The spaces would be on the northwest side of Limerick Road.
While the money exists in the parks and recreation reserve fund to subsidize the paving option, it is considerably more expensive, said Town Manager Todd Shea.
