Increased Mansfield Parking

Postby MBTA F40PH-2C 1050 » Mon Nov 22, 2004 8:55 pm

According to the Sun Chronicle on Saturday, the MBTA parking lot in Mansfield currently contains 800 spaces (including 172 in a small private lot). On Tuesday, little or no opposition is expected at a town hall meeting to a request by the private lot owner to add an additional 508 spaces at no public cost. The new spaces are expected to be open by June.

Yeah, the parking issue at Mansfield has been talked about since the dinosaur era :-), but they haven't done a thing yet, that's what bothers me. I hope they move forward with those parking expansion plans so that other residents in the neighbourhood of Mansfield can drive upthere rather than going to other stations for a parking spot.

Too bad they can't make a lot out of the old land north of the station, where a large fire destroyed the land's existing buildings in the late 90's.

The land under the old Clemmy Tank Co. that burned to the groud (arson by some teens) is still owned by old man Clemmy, and last I heard, he wants to put in a self storage business there...
