Parking consultant tells council that parking is not being used efficiently


A parking consultant has told Havre de Grace City
Council in Maryland, US, that their parking problem is not a shortage of
spaces, but that too many short-term spaces are being used by long-term parkers.

The study essentially concludes that the city does not
enforce appropriately its parking ordinances, and suggests that the city
commence doing so immediately. The consultant recommends that the city should focus
on issuing warnings to first-time offenders and issue steep fines to drivers
after the third warning.

The study was commissioned to analyse parking in the
downtown area as part of a greater economic feasibility plan being carried out
by the city, in collaboration with the Havre de Grace Main Street organisation.
It involved hourly checks of
about 1,000 spaces, both
on- and off-street, during weekday hours.
