I was contacted today about why the parking lot at the Walpole train station closed. While I knew nothing about the situation, I was willing to reach out to the Walpole Town Administrator’s office.
I was told by the Walpole Town Administrator’s office that:
- the parking lot had never been properly permitted;
- it was shut down by the owner to be paved; and
- Walpole is not expecting that it will re-open as public parking, as going forward they are told that the owner will apparently be using it for parking commercial vehicles and for work to be done on his nearby building.
