Traffic and Parking
March 02, 2012 | 07:07 AM
Until the Common Council has the wherewithal to address the real problem - parking - nothing will change. There may have been a time that parking on Main Street made sense. There may have been a time that angle parking on city streets made sense. That time has passed. If a traffic engineer was actually ever allowed to study parking in Lake Geneva, that would be the conclusion.
Perhaps it is time to consider multi-level parking ramps in the city. Perhaps across the street from City Hall or the old Ace Hardware parking lot would be locations.
Of course, ending parking on Main Street would be political suicide. Inasmuch as local politicians are more interested in keeping their jobs than in doing their jobs, real solutions will never actually be addressed.
