A parking study reveals that Downtown Medford will be forced to find more options for both long and short term parking in the coming years.
Well, the city should be able to pay for it, since they charge $25 a parking ticket...oh let me guess, now they'll probably raise that too! How is it police can write you a $10 fix-it ticket for a violation on your car for something broken but the city can write a $25 parking ticket. to someone who has never gotten a ticket before and who is a student at RCC and pays everyday for an automated receipt to park closer to school. I ask for a parking permit but am told all of them are taken for parking near school. I look over in the parking lot across from the library and there are lots of spaces to park but I have to pay by the automated machine IN the parking lot each day and pay close to $7 dollars a day (that's including my credit card fee), just doesn't seem right! Students should be getting a break since you make a lot of money off of them everyday! Just a thought...I'm sure you've heard it all before and I can't only hope you keep hearing about it too.
Just make more one-way streets and maybe there will be less people going downtown. I rarely go downtown because of the one-way streets. They are confusing and create a hazardous distraction every time you want to make a turn. You divert too much of your attention looking up in the air for "one-way" signs, so that you don't make an error and turn the wrong way onto one of them. I suppose they are good for driving citations.
