The owner of a local kayak/canoe/tube rental company told Conway selectmen this week he thinks outdoor enthusiasts will “swamp” the small parking lots next to the Saco River in Conway and North Conway. He suggested expanding Hussey’s field by First Bridge and charging tubers and kayakers to pay $20 to park there. Free parking could be made available to residents with Conway dump stickers. The proposal could also provide a new cash stream to make up shortfalls in the town’s anticipated revenues due to the coronavirus pandemic. Selectmen said they would look into it.
