Residents to discuss ‘Public Realm Enhancement’ plans at Strokestown meeting 

A group of concerned residents in Strokestown are organising a meeting to be held on Friday night, 21st June, at Compton Central Bar in Strokestown at 7 pm. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the Public Realm Enhancement Plans, which have received funding to the tune of €8 million from Roscommon County Council through central Government.
  The primary objective of the meeting is for opponents of the plan, particularly those who wish to see material changes regarding parking, to convene and organise their objections and plan a way forward to “see the streets of Strokestown protected”. They aim to determine the best way to proceed in raising their concerns with the council. Indications from Roscommon County Council suggest that the plan will not undergo material changes.
  However, Senator Eugene Murphy mentioned in previous media reports that while substantial changes might not be feasible, some modifications regarding parking could be considered.
  He cautioned against expecting significant amendments, and has stated he understands the concerns of residents and businesses. The group, Strokestown Action Group, say all and any residents, business owners and members of the community who wish to attend should do so and air their views and opinions.
