New parking lot planned for Distillery District

Parking in the Distillery District will soon get a little easier with the addition of a 25-space public parking lot near the intersection of Manchester Street and Forbes Road, Mayor Linda Gorton said today.

“We originally purchased this property as part of Town Branch Trail. When the original alignment of the trail changed we had this property left over,” Gorton said. “The public frequently asks for more parking in the Distillery District. This is a step in the right direction.”

Paving the lot will cost about $195,000 including paving and a connection to Town Branch Trail. The cost will be covered by federal funds.
