I never said there wasn't more at play.
In fact, I think I've said two or three times now that parking meters are just one of several issues for retail businesses.
So I'm not sure why you're still arguing with me about something I'm not saying.
Not really arguing, just pointing out the other end which really wasn't qualified with the "talk to such and such business owner". I appreciate the whole picture you typically bring to these discussions.
What's the solution when those 4-5 meters immediately in front are all taken at a peak time? At what point do you stop accomadating and start creating a solution better suited to an urban environment? I assume, with the cost of meters and installation, we can kiss streetcars goodbye for the considerable future.
