PROVINCETOWN — Some wanted more street parking and others wanted to put a halt to it at the annual traffic hearing on Tuesday night. Though residents and town staff can make requests, the board of selectmen makes decisions.

Selectman Tom Donegan requested the creation of resident parking spaces between Oppen Lane and Point Street on Bradford Street Extension for future Harbor Hill tenants. Rob Tosner, who lives in the area, said thousands of people use that route to return from the beach, the breakwater and the Moors. Parking would cause congestion, he said.

“To put parking anywhere over there is not a good idea,” Tosner said. “It’s a hectic area throughout the year, not only in the summer. I hope you can take this into consideration and expand the parking [at Harbor Hill instead].”

Assistant Town Manager David Gardner said creating the spaces could cost around $60,000, would need Capital Improvements funds and would have to go before the conservation commission.

“We need to investigate,” Dept. of Public Works Director Rich Waldo said. “There’s drainage issues, topographical issues, and we need to consider the extent of parking and how many spaces we can get in there.”

Donegan’s motion for staff to gather more information was approved 3-2, with selectmen Chair Cheryl Andrews and selectman Louise Venden opposed.

Mark Lessinger and Michael O’Connor at 105 Commercial St. wanted two public parking spaces across from their house removed because they claimed the cars parked there are difficult to navigate around.

“We can’t take those paid parking spots away,” neighbor Roxanne “Jill” Pires said. “The spot they are talking about it is tricky I have to admit, [but] I think its mandatory we keep it all. We need the money.” Selectmen agreed and said no, 4-0-1.

Cynthia Gilman, spokesman for 24 Pleasant Street Condominium, asked for a nine-foot space next to her trash collection area to become a no parking zone. Selectmen again said no, 4-0-1.

Arthur Egeli asked to nix a public parking space near the driveway of his gallery, and also spoke for Francesca Brenner, who wanted nearby two spots to become loading zones. The board denied Egeli’s request, but voted 5-0 to turn one parking spot by 382 Commercial St. into a 15-minute loading/unloading zone from 6 a.m. to noon, after which it would become a paid public parking.

Linda Loren asked for four handicap parking spaces at the MacMillan Parking lot. The proposal was amended to only two spaces and was unanimously approved.

Curtis Balom wanted the direction of Arch Street changed because, he said, delivery trucks on the narrow road have been causing damage to homes.

“My problem with reversing the traffic on Arch Street is the traffic jam we are going to have on Johnson Street, Conwell Street and Bradford Street going both ways,” Selectman Bobby Anthony said. “It’s going to be a nightmare. I’d rather see some type of other signage to deter people from going down Arch Street.”

The board was unanimously against the proposal and instead asked for better signs.

Steven Katz wanted stop signs installed at the Bradford Street intersection at Shank Painter Road.

“Our concern is born in history,” Gardner said. “Stop signs require compliance and requires those of us who are here all the time to learn a new behavior. If I didn’t think there would be another request next year to remove the stop sign, I would be in favor.” The plan stopped there.

The Outer Cape Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was approved with a motion to adopt the working plan.

“Adopting the plan does not automatically approve each recommendation listed within the plan,” Gardner said, “but rather sets an action plan for consideration of the specific projects.”

The plan passed 3-2, with Andrews and Anthony opposed.

Another request, to designate a “No Parking” area west of the White Dory Bay Condominium, was approved 3-1, with Andrews opposed; a request by Stephan Cohen to install a crosswalk leading from Riley’s Parking Lot to Harry Kemp Way was approved 5-0; a request by Donegan to paint 17 crosswalks throughout town to increase visibility was approved 5-0; a request to repaint fog lines on Bradford Street and other roads was approved 4-1, with Andrews opposed; and a request to designate parking space two on Ryder Street as a compact car-only space was also approved.
