Letters From The Editor – Let Store Owners Take Up Parking Spaces

Newcomer to P.G. thinks shoppers will park far from town to spend money, therefore LET store merchants take up all the 2 hour spaces all day.

I have lived in Pacific Grove for 18 years. In that period of time I have observed our parking meter police ticketing vehicles belonging to our local PG merchants and their employees. These people must interrupt whatever they are doing every two or three hours to move their cars from one spot to another. This is usually a few feet from where they were. How foolish is this?

Mark C. Klein needs TWO parking spaces for his Cadillac.

Mark C. Klein of Pacific Grove stands next to his 1975 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Klein bought the car from an estate in Illinois. It had 3,900 original miles on it.

Smarter resident sets it straight.

The last time I worked in any city including Pacific Grove I was told that downtown parking was for customers and employees had to park elsewhere and walk to work. In Pacific Grove you can park on off streets and Pine Avenue with no time restrictions. Mr. Klein’s way of thinking is let’s make customers drive around looking for parking while businesses stay empty — no wonder Pacific Grove is losing money.
