Parking promise pulverized?

‘No’ says Chelsea mayor

By Hunter Cresswell

A Mill Road man said he feels burned by the municipality of Chelsea after learning of the possibility of parking spots for community trail users being built near his home.

“If you put a parking lot and washroom, it will fundamentally change our neighbourhood,” Mill Road resident Paul Elter said in a phone interview last week.

A flower garden, a book-exchange box and four parking spaces mark the community trail’s intersection with Chemin Gleneagle in Chelsea. More of these intersections are coming to municipal roads intersected by the trail. Hunter Cresswell photo
