Re: “Editor's Note: Parking matters -- and so does common sense

Here is our take on it. We drive downtown after work to grab a bite to eat, do a little shopping and exercise (stairs) 3-5 times a week. We spend a lot of money downtown. We do this because of the free parking after 5pm and on the weekends. We used to use the parking garages for safety, then they hiked the prices and it pushed us to the streets, it just added too much expense the number of times we drove down there. Now considering that we spend many hours downtown on the weekends the cost will increase dramatically. If it's going to cost 6-8 dollars on each weekday visit and 10-12 dollars on the weekends, instead of free, we'll just go eat on the south side as well do more shopping. This will just hurt the local businesses as you'll just have tourist and no locals. Let's not forget the hassle of feeding the meters in one way or another. Yes you get spots to turn over faster, but it's also going to have people leave the district faster and leave with their money.
