Reminder: July 1 thru Labor Day Monday:
SLI's Season Opened Today, Runs through Labor Day; No Parking on Ames Walkway
Ames Walkway opens approximtely two months each year as an exclusive walkway every July 1st and closes every year as an exclusive walkway on Labor Day Monday. These are the same dates of the official Silver Lake Institute's Open Season. While the walkway is officially open during these summer dates, no parking is allowed on the Walkway.
If, however, a property owner has no room on their private property for a vehicle, such as the Connolly property (on the east side of Ames, the second lot south of Genesee), those persons are permitted 15 minutes of "pickup and drop-off" parking on Ames.
The question gets raised to us as to why there are often cars parked on the Walkway in the Open Season. The answer is rather simple: The community was not informed of the Board's action both times it was voted on, nor does the Board (or any assigned entity) take responsibility for enforcement.
