• City’s Gift for the Holidays: Three-Hour Parking Downtown

    The City of Pacific Grove City Council voted  to temporarily increase the parking limit downtown over the 2014-15 holiday season to three hours from the existing two hours.

    Community and Economic Development Director Mark Brodeur told the Council that research shows two-hour limits are not conducive to a “park once” customer-friendly atmosphere. It is hoped that shoppers and diners will eat a leisurely meal and then spend some time shopping, especially over the holidays.

    Decals with the new time limit will be placed on existing signs, and then removed when the experiment is over — or not. The Economic Development Commission, the Business Improvement District, and the Chamber of Commerce will each be asked to analyze and report on the effectiveness, and the time limit may be extended permanently.

    The new time limit takes effect immediately after the second reading of the ordinance on Dec. 3 and will be reviewed on February 6.
