Like many people, I have been frustrated by the policies of the city government related to parking in the city center. This is not new, it is a permanent feature of college towns, and I don't expect miracles. But lately it has become much worse. The 'business friendly' willingness of the city to accomodate larger businesses and allow them to monopolize individual parking places has created a level of chaos. It has become impossible to patronize downtown restaurants and small businesses due to the number parking spaces held by larger facilities 'valet' reservations and the number of locations held by construction projects.
