— “What we really need is space for visitors,” said Trustee Peggy Van Arnam. “This will not be a lot for downtown workers.”

The board conversed about closely re-examining the parking situation in the village, and possibly implementing a total overhaul of parking in Cazenovia next year.

“Over the winter, we will look to draft a holistic village-wide shift in the parking model, for this spring,” Wheeler said.

The board then unanimously approved a bond of $200,000 — to cover the cost of the property and closing fees, as well as construction of the new parking lot — to be repaid within five years.

A number of new, universally-recognized, blue parking signs have recently been installed along Albany and Mill streets in the village of Cazenovia.

During the regularly-scheduled village board meeting on Nov. 5, trustees announced a number of the universally-recognized blue parking signs have recently been installed downtown.

The new signs direct drivers to the free, all-day public parking lot on Riverside Drive, behind the Cazenovia Public Library.

Village officials have continuously attempted to increase awareness of the lot, adding a pedestrian walkway which connects to Albany Street, and taking steps to clearly define spaces over the past year.

The future public parking lot on Lincklaen Street will serve as a permanent record of their efforts.
