The reason why they limit parking downtown is so workers don't park there. Shop owners want paying customers to be able to get to the stores to buy. The library has 2 hour parking so workers don't just use it as a parking lot. YES, real people do spend hours there a day I know some of them.

As a disabled person if I can not find parking close, that store has just lost my sale. End of story. I do call in cars parked illegally in handicap parking spots I don't care if you only have a 30 min lunch -- not my problem it's very painful for me to walk, park somewhere else.

I use to work MANY jobs downtown I know, and I get it. So you either ride share & walk some, park far away, pay the tickets, bus , or taxi. NOT the end of the world.
