Woods of Westlake gets parking pilot

Thursday, July 16, 2020 by Tai Moses

The good news is that more people are spending time in nature during the pandemic. The bad news is that a lot of them are hiking the Hill of Life trail and all those people and cars have caused congestion, overcrowding and illegal parking in the Woods of Westlake neighborhood. Thus, “To enhance safety and accessibility for both residents of the neighborhood and visitors to the trailhead,” the Transportation Department is implementing a new parking pilot program, which “will use a combination of Pay to Park on-street parking, expanded No Parking areas, and the creation of Digital Resident Parking Zones. Pay to Park parking for visitors to the trailhead will be available along Scottish Woods Trail. Pricing will depend on the length of the parking sessions.” Because of “the fluid nature of the pandemic,” the department is not yet sure of the timeline for the pilot, but look for street signs going up in the neighborhood this month. Find more information about the pilot program and residential permits here.
