Many have noticed the curbing installation on Main Street over the past few weeks and have wondered if Main Street was losing parking spaces. Residents and business owners alike noted seeing more bump out sections and in some areas, no parking spaces at all.

Cortland Mayor Scott Steve said during Tuesday’s Common Council meeting that the Main Street reconstruction resulted in the loss of about 46 to 48 parking spaces. Main Street has been in the process of a complete reconstruction for the past two years now. The project is expected to be almost 100% completed by the end of the construction season this year.

The less parking spaces won’t be the only noticeable change though. Main Street will once again become a two-way street and motorists will have to reverse their vehicle to park in the spaces.

It’s not all bad news though regarding the loss of parking spaces on Main Street. The Groton Ave public parking lot will be finishing up later this week and the redesign of the parking lot will bring in additional 50 parking spaces.

In addition to the 50 added parking spaces, the city is also working on a dumpster consolidation program to reduce the number of dumpsters in the parking lot.
