Argyle Street parking changes

Mike Campbell’s campaign bears fruit.

Posted By on Mon, Dec 13, 2010 at 4:00 AM

As the owner of local restaurant and music venue The Carleton (1685 Argyle Street, 422-6335), Mike Campbell has had plenty to say about the parking regulations on the streets downtown, in regular newsletters to his customers and the Stop the Winter Parking Ban Facebook group. In a recent dispatch, he had some good news to pass on:

“I am very happy to report that: the ‘No Stopping’ signs on the east side of Argyle St. have been replaced with ‘2 Hour Parking’ signs which will remain until the meters on the street can be reinstalled. AND all the tickets written for parking in that No Stopping area since the end of October have been reversed!

“AND---be still, my hammering heart---the city will no longer be handing out tickets to cars parked in the 'Motorcycle Only' area on the west side of Argyle St. during the winter months even if the signs remain.”

Campbell credits Dawn Sloane for getting the city to do something in this instance and calls the change “a small but significant victory for the powers of goodness over the forces of badness.”

Incidentally, the parking ban will be reinstated from 1am this Wednesday, December 15 and runs until March 31, 2011. It restricts on-street parking from 1am to 7am.
