Neighborhood Businesses Miss the Point on Parking

We’ve already heard that the Hawthorne district will reject Sam Adams call for metered parking.

But now the Business Journal is reporting that some neighborhood businesses are thinking that what they need is MORE parking, in the form of parking structures.

Do they really think that their customers will pay to park in a structure while on-street parking is free? We’re about to see that mistake get made on NW 23rd, where we already have several off-street lots that are usually less than half full because on-street parking is free.
