The new spaces, which were completed on Friday, bring the total parking spaces added to Green’s Farms this year to 30, according to First Selectman Jim Marpe.

Marpe, accompanied by his dog Madison, toured the station today with Deputy Police Chief Foti Koskinas, who heads the police Railroad Parking Division. Koskinas noted that of the new spaces, 14 are designated for permit holders and four are for commuters paying the daily $5 fee.

“This will make a big difference for some commuters,” Marpe said of the new area that replaces an island he said offered neither aesthetic nor practical use.
