Kim - 

Have you seen a plan somewhere?
It was my understanding that meters would not be installed on Hope because the city feared they would push cars onto the side streets.

I wanted to give you the heads up that the city is planning on installing parking meters on Hope Street and possibly some of the side streets. Personally, I think this is a dreadful idea. Meters are ugly and detract from the small town feel that Hope Street has.

Meters are just another reason for potential visitors to drive to the mall or nearest big box to shop.

Let’s speak up and let them know that we want our neighborhood to stay the way it is. When downtown landlords are getting tax abatements, I don’t see why we should have to feed the meter to park in our own neighborhood. If you love our little retail section, help us stop the meters.
