The Richmond City Council voted in favor of changing designated parking zones on one major street earlier this month and council members passed an ordinance related to the changes at their meeting Tuesday. Mayor Mike Wright said several residents have voiced concern with the traffic flow on Wellington Street. “School buses travel that road quite heavily and we took a survey of the people that live on the street. It was about 50/50 and council felt this was the right avenue to take,” said Wright.
There will be no parking on the east side of Wellington from South to Lexington Street and from Lexington to Main.
