Dear Village Resident,
On March 1, 2023, at 7:30 PM the Village of Brewster Board of Trustees will be hosting a public forum at Village Hall, 50 Main Street, to discuss the Prospect Street traffic issues that occur on Sundays.
The Board of Trustees has received complaints regarding the difficulty in parking and traveling on Prospect Street on Sundays and is considering making the road a one-way on Sundays to provide some relief.
While this is not the final decision, the Board is asking for public input on the change to gauge what the other options may be and how to relieve this area of congestion on Sundays.
The Board of Trustees is looking forward to working with the community to determine the best solution for traffic flow in this area.
THE VILLAGE OF BREWSTER BOARD OF TRUSTEES DECISION:
The Board has decided to allow St. Lawrence Church to continue with its parking lot project in hopes that it will alleviate some of the congestion on Prospect Street. In the meantime, the Board has instructed the Village Police Department to patrol the area, especially on Sundays, for patrons who are blocking residents' driveways, speeding, and other infractions. This increased enforcement will help ensure the safety of those in the area and those visiting the area and will begin immediately. Anyone who violates the law will be ticketed and towed at their own expense. Once the parking lot is completed, the Board will invite the public to a meeting and reassess the issues with traffic flow in this area. The minutes from this meeting will be posted on March 15, 2023, please contact Village Hall if you have any questions.
