Since 2015, the parking permit scheme has been mentioned a few times in the Council, but no action has been taken to revive it. Now, Gossips has learned, by way of Facebook, that new parking rules are being imposed by the hospital, not for its workers but for patients and visitors. All those who like to avoid the parking garage and snag a spot in the little lot out front when keeping an appointment or visiting a sick friend take notice. That parking lot is no longer available to you.
According to this map, posted on Facebook by someone who works at CMH, the parking lot out front, off Prospect Avenue, is reserved for handicapped parking, medical transport, and valet parking. When you are visiting the medical office building or the hospital, you can park your car yourself in the parking garage or leave your car at the valet parking stand and have the staff park it for you.
