No to pay parking in Steveston

Editor:

Re: City proposed pay parking in Steveston.

I’m shaking my head in confusion. Once learning about the proposed parking charges to patrons who park in Steveston Village, I was stunned.

The city is going to lengths to help business owners, whom are struggling through these very challenging economic times and yet are proposing to charge for parking?

Charging for parking will be like a “death sentence” to the already struggling owners.

There is a serious lack of family friendly places where parking is free.

Steveston must remain a free and family friendly neighborhood.
