A lifelong North End resident, Mikaya Emma, asked for something to be done about the illegal parking on the basketball court in the Nazzaro Center playground. The matter was brought to the attention of the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) at the January 14, 2013 public meeting. With nightly events at the indoor Nazzaro gym, the young man said the court is getting destroyed because it is being misused. He suggested the Nazzaro Center get a validation stamp applicable at the Parcel 7 garage ($1 for 1 hour, $3 for 3 hours) for those out-of-towners attending Nazzaro events. NEWNC President Stephen Passacantilli said he would follow up on the issue through City Hall.
