V. Kolbenschlag: Parking spaces should be for customers only

By Vonnie Kolbenschlag
I would also like to suggest that to help downtown businesses, the spaces around the square should be marked Customer Parking, Please instead of Two Hour Parking
Owners and workers of the shops could park in the lots off the square freeing up space for customers. It is an easy jaunt from the various lots for persons working in the stores to park in those lots. Customer parking should be provided to encourage customers to shop.
With the two hour parking signs, some people who work in offices are parking in front of stores, moving after two hours and then returning to park or switching a spot taking up a potential parking place for a customer.
"Well the sign says Two Hour Parking, and I followed what it said, moving my car after two hours," I have heard it said.
I have a reasonable doubt, though, that any one really checks to see if the two hour parking rule is followed.
Customer Parking Only, Please, I think, would be better than Two Hour Parking
