The Town of Antigonish is removing two heavily used parking meters from College Street. They are located in front of the Casket Newspaper offices, near the municipal building. Mayor Carl Chisholm happened to be there one day watching the traffic serve around a large vehicle parked at the meters. He says a young woman walking with her head down, texting, was lucky that she didn’t get clipped. Chisholm says for the 15 minutes he was there observing, safety was top of mind.
The plan is to revisit in the Spring. If there’s enough room for a sidewalk on the opposing side with smooth traffic flow then the parking meters may be re-installed.
