At its meeting Thursday morning, the Raleigh City Council's Public Works Committee will discuss a proposed parking ban on the streets of Trenton Woods, one of the nice new West Raleigh subdivisions springing up on the outskirts of Umstead State Park.
Trenton Woods is on Trenton Road near its intersection with Reedy Creek Road, and that's close to a park maintenance road that has become a popular neighborhood access point for folks who bike, hike, run and walk in the park.
The council agreed in February to have the committee reconsider the request after some park patrons protested that it would make it even harder -- and it's getting harder all the time, already -- simply to find a place to leave your car so you can visit the park.
The meeting is in Room 201, City Council Chamber, Raleigh Municipal Building, 222 West
Hargett Street, Raleigh. For information call 996-3040 (City Clerk’s Office).
