Conway selectmen ask state for parking ban near Diana's Baths

NH1.com

Crowded conditions, trash and illegal fires have brought some north country residents and local officials to consider a parking ban near a popular swimming hole.

Diana's Baths, a series of cascading pools on Lucy Brook and a short drive from North Conway Village, attracts a large number of visitors during the warmer months. Some area residents have concerns over parking and related issues.

According to the Conway Daily Sun, town selectmen have asked the New Hampshire Department of Transportation to prevent parking on both sides of West Road, which runs near the attraction.

Bill Lambert of New Hampshire DOT, was quoted as saying commissioner Victoria Shaheen "would likely want to address all such areas across the state at once.

"New Hampshire is a tourism state. If we start prohibiting people from visiting very popular sites, the commissioner is going to hear from the tourism industry."
