Web­ster Falls park­ing scofflaws on no­tice

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Be warned, Web­ster Falls vis­i­tors: the city will be crack­ing down this sum­mer on il­le­gal week­end park­ing near the pop­u­lar con­ser­va­tion area.

Oh, and pee­ing on peo­ple’s lawns is also frowned upon.

The Hamil­ton Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity has hooked up with a Greensville busi­ness group this year to test a week­end park-and­shut­tle lot for Web­ster Falls at Mizener’s An­tiques and Flea­mar­ket at 367 High­way 5 West. ($10 for park­ing and $5 ad­mis­sion per per­son.)

The shut­tle idea was pitched in part to limit a grow­ing num­ber of vis­i­tors to the eco­log­i­cally sen­si­tive con­ser­va­tion au­thor­ity as well as to ad­dress com­plaints about il­le­gal on-street park­ing.

City by­law teams will be pa­trolling for park­ing scofflaws near the con­ser­va­tion area and other pop­u­lar wa­ter­falls on week­ends.

The city also en­cour­ages vis­i­tors to be re­spect­ful of area res­i­dents, who have com­plained about tres­passers pee­ing on lawns and even chang­ing di­a­pers on home­own­ers’ pa­tio fur­ni­ture.
