Parking tickets to spur changes around Conneaut stadium

CONNEAUT — Motorists will see changes in parking procedure around the Conneaut High School football stadium, thanks to a flurry of parking tickets issued last fall.

Parking spaces will be created along a section of Maple Avenue and areas off-limits to vehicles will be more clearly marked, said City Council President Nicholas Church. The initiative was discussed at a joint meeting of City Council and the Conneaut Board of Education early Wednesday evening.

Last year, over a period of a few weeks, police issued several tickets to motorists who parked illegal in the vicinity of the stadium. In response, some changes are ahead, Church said.

“We want to make sure things are squared away,” he said.

Additional no-parking signs will be installed to clarify restricted areas, Church said. In the same vein, curbs will be painted to remind drivers where no parking zones begin and end, he said.

Parking spaces will be painted on portions of Maple between the stadium and the General Electric plant, Church said. Disabled parking spaces will be created across the street from the stadium, he said.

In other business , Spartan banners may appear early this summer in the downtown district, Church said. The flags are aimed at boosting community awareness of the schools, officials have said.

The groups also heard from Rod Raker, Conneaut Tree Commission chairman, about a proposed expansion of Malek Park, thanks to property donated by a landowner, Church said. The school district also owns land in the area of the park.
