The centrally located Amity Street Parking lot, after two months closure, reopened this morning with everything except pay machines. So for the time being parking is free.
The lot increases slightly in capacity from 33 to 35 spaces with three of them handicapped accessible, where previously there were only two.
The improvement plans also call for a raised crosswalk connecting to the Jones Library instead of the current temporary painted crosswalk as well as sidewalk improvements.
Later this month the Planning Board and Tree Warden will decide the fate of the large (22") Linden tree which stands in the way of the construction.
