I have an opinion as to the City of Warren parking plan. It's a DUMB idea. How many people are going to say "The heck with paying a kiosk or meter, I'll go to Wal-Mart and park for free!"
If you want to have a bustling downtown economy then access to business should be as easy as possible. This is common sense...It's almost as if those in favor could give a hoot about downtown business!
I ask all of our Warren City Council members to think long and hard about the implications of putting one extra step between a downtown business and its patronage. Decreased business presence downtown means less taxes paid in the long run. Isn't that obvious to everyone?
The plan is a business killer any way you look at it.
