Parking moves don’t make sense

As someone who values our vibrant downtown, I am taken aback by some of the proposals put forth by the downtown parking task force (Enterprise, June 19). The goal must be to maintain the attractiveness of shopping downtown by increasing the availability of parking spaces.

By this token, why institute more paid spaces? How does that make downtown more attractive? And why increase parking limits to four hours? How in the world would that increase availability?

Either of these changes can only increase available spaces by discouraging shoppers from coming downtown! At least that’s my guess. Clearly, this task force needs an experienced outside consultant.
