Parking Lot Improvement Project

Enhanced parking is a concern for us, as we maxed out of parking space during busy weekends this past winter. We speculate that the heavy traffic was the result of a couple of factors…consistently good weather and snow conditions AND the COVID pandemic that drove people outdoors for safe, winter activity at a time when carpooling was discouraged. So, we will take steps to enlarge the usable space and mitigate the undesirable aspects of mud season on the parking experience (see one solution pictured above). At the same time, we will be encouraging efficient transportation through use of the Richmond “Park and Ride” and carpooling. These changes may involve a re-route of the connector trails on each side of the existing parking area.

While we’re at it, we clearly need a better, more visible sign marking the entrance to CHNSA. Any artistic proposals are appreciated!!
