City should consider fewer parking restrictions to attract more visitors
To the Editor:
Those of us that live in the Cleveland Heights/University Heights area know what wonderful restaurants and "mom and pop" stores are available here. I love telling people of all the places we have within walking distance of almost every area in the two cities.
We want to attract people from outside our area, and make shopping and eating here available to all. So what do we do—put in parking meters that only accept quarters and have paid parking from morning through evening.
At one point in time, the city had meters that allowed people to park for free after 6 p.m. How wonderful that would be, to have it back again. It would certainly be more friendly and inviting, and be good for all involved.
