Nashua alderman proposes shortening parking meter hours
This week, Alderman-at-Large Barbara Pressly is introducing a proposed ordinance that would amend the time patrons must begin feeding the parking meters.
“That is one of the most quiet times downtown. Most businesses don’t open until 9 or 10, with the exception of the diners, so it is their patrons who are hit the hardest,” said Blaisdell. “The morning breakfast spots are impacted the most.”
Blaisdell agreed, saying those people who enter a diner at 7:30 a.m. either have to pay early to park, or leave their breakfast on the table to feed a pay station. The proposed ordinance will be incredibly accommodating to those downtown patrons and the merchants who serve those individuals, she said.
The proposed ordinance, which is also being endorsed by Alderman-at-Large Mark Cookson, will have its first reading at tonight’s meeting of the Board of Aldermen beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Nashua City Hall.
