Downtown Parking - Call For Ideas
Original post made by What can be done to improve parking in downtown Menlo Park? , Menlo Park: Downtown, on Jul 13, 2014
What can be done to improve parking in the Menlo Park downtown area? Certainly there are ways that can make the experience more pleasant. Quite frankly, 1,000's of overtime parking citations may result in 100's of thousand of dollars in fines for the city, but at the same time is it taking away valued customers from local businesses? For many, two hours seems too short. Over 800 tickets are issued each year for parking over the white line. Should everyone carry a magnifying glass with them? There must be a better way. Is the City of Menlo Park parking enforcement too aggressive? Suggestions welcome.
