Join Chamber for commuter parking discussion

City of Mercer Island staff are inviting Town Center business and property owners and managers to meet with them to discuss concerns about street parking, particularly with the scheduled May 30 closure of the South Bellevue Park and Ride.

The meeting will be held from 9-10 a.m. on May 18 at the North Fire Station, 3030 78th Ave. SE.

The city wants to ask business owners how the current street parking program is working, and if they agree with the city’s stance that off-Island commuters should not use Town Center streets for commuter parking.

The city needs businesses to be its eyes and ears on the street and report violators, according to a memo from the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce.

The city will also give a general update about traffic mitigation to be installed over the next few weeks by Sound Transit, and a general Interstate 90 update.
