Ken Kleinman: Takes issue with perceived parking flipflop

Thursday, August 10, 2017

I’m pleased that Sarah la Cour and the Business Improvement District are supporting parklets in public parking spaces. It sound like a great idea to me.

But I’m confused. Is this the same Sarah la Cour who also asserts that there are too few public parking spaces in downtown Amherst (“Downtown parking problem can be solved,” April 14)? Especially when there are events going on like the Downtown Beats concert, when one of the parklets will be set up?

There’s no parking problem in Amherst. The Business Improvement District acknowledges it with its parklet program.
