The City Council has rejected a local restaurant's request to use the William F. Stanley Senior Center's parking lot after hours.
During a recent meeting, the councilors voted to place the matter on file and remove it from their agenda. The owners of La Campania, at 504 Main Street, had asked for permission to lease part of the senior center parking lot at 488 Main Street for customer parking on evenings and weekends.
Councilors, however, said that doing so could preclude the Council on Aging from holding events at those times. Some councilors also voiced concern that granting the request would set a precedent where private businesses would seek to use other city-owned lots for their exclusive use.
The city's Council on Aging also opposed the request.
