Facing the reality that the one-time, interim access from Third Street to Second Street through the post office lot is no more, Langley’s mayor is hoping to make lemonade out of lemons, so to speak. Mayor Tim Callison has a plan to stripe a few more parking spaces adjacent to the concrete barriers set near the former Third Street access to the post office parking lot. That area of Third Street already offers public parking and essentially operates as a dead-end lot. A private home blocks Third Street from connecting to Cascade Avenue, just east of the post office. Parking spaces are available on either side of the road, from Anthes Avenue to the dead end. Among persistent criticism that there is not enough parking in the downtown hub, any additional parking is welcome.
