Carl Thibodeau, Mary Carey Seavey and John Colbath are the 3 responsible for jamming it down the towns throat, with zero regard for anyone else's opinions on the matter, it's what they want and that's all that matters, everyone else can take a hike.
As for the railroad, we could see some major operational changes coming as a result of the parking meters. They don't have enough room in N. Conway to offer free parking for all their riders, but they do have room in Conway, something that's already been demonstrated with the 4th of July shuttle trains and with and actual designed parking lot, can probably fit a lot of cars down there. As previously mentioned, there's also Kearsarge Siding and dear I say Red Stone for additional room? Red Stone was the planned (more talk than plan) park and ride locations for shuttle trains, that was eventually abandoned when NorthSouth Rd was built.
Who's on first?
