No 2-3 Hour Parking Limit in Blue Ridge

388 Signatures Goal: 1,000

The Blue Ridge City Council is planning to implement a 2-3 hour parking limit on all downtown Blue Ridge parking spaces. The implications of limiting parking in Blue Ridge are huge, the least of which is a huge negative impact on tourism. The drop-in tourism greatly impacts many other industries in our community, such as downtown business revenue, real estate sales and revenue from taxes to just name a few. We need a strategy for downtown parking that includes more parking spaces, transportation and mobility, and wayfinding signs. We want the City Council to NOT implement the 2-3 hour parking limit until a comprehensive plan has been created.

Join us in Saying NO to 2-3 hour parking limit throughout downtown Blue Ridge.

    I am opposed to regulation downtown
    Parking. As a 5 year employee of
    MULTITUDES many folks day tripping
    Train riding or shopping and dining
    APPRECIATE the casual atmosphere
    Along Main Street. I would suggest
    Having a routine shuttle bus pick up
    Visitors at the far end of town
    Drop visitors at children park. And
    PICK UP at main and hall st back to
    The large parking deck run every 30
    Minutes. Shopkeepers can pay
    Got a small advertisement inside
    The bus. Thank you

    NO to a 2-3 hr parking limit. Not even enough time for people to ride the train. Would be a shame to limit time for people to eat in the wonderful restaurants and shop in the wonderful shops!!!! And then what are you going to give them tickets.....that would not be a very good memory of visiting Blue Ridge!! I live in a neighboring town and visit Blue Ridge frequently.
