The Commerce Council of the Chamber has formed a task force to study the problem of finding adequate parking in Wakefield village.  Visitors and residents alike experience difficulty finding places to park near their destination when they visit the village core.  This is not only inconvenient and frustrating, but has an adverse effect on business, tourism and development in Wakefield.  The Task Force has now completed its draft report setting out an exhaustive list of possible solutions, and now seeks comment from Chamber members and the public before finalizing recommendations.

Please take the time to read the Wakefield Parking Task Force Draft Report and provide your answers to the following questions:

  • Do you agree with the general vision and policy underlying the Task Force’s approach? 
  • How would you assess the possible solutions?  Which ones are most important to do?  Which would you recommend not be done? 
  • Do you have other possible solutions to suggest?

Please send your comments by May 19 to so that the report can be finalized and shared with the Municipality and others.  Your input matters to make solutions happen!
