The new and improved Thames Street is lit up for the holidays, twinkling, festive displays to draw folks to the recently revamped streetscape. But Groton City Police Chief Thomas Davoren wants folks to be aware of new parking changes.
In a letter to residents, Davoren notes that the street is slightly narrower as a result of the reconstruction project, especially, he noted, in the area from Broad Street southward to the entrance of Puffins restaurant.
“In order to adjust to the safety needs of the operating public and deter the possibility of future motor vehicle accidents due toe the change, the City of Groton is restricting parking on two small areas,” he wrote. Going forward, the south side of Thames beginning at 101 Thames southward 25 feet and from 131 Thames south to the entrance of Puffins are no parking zones.
Davoren called parking limited and available on a “first come, first served basis.”
