Absolutely. How does raising parking meter pricing help to attract people downtown? Usually the first step in convincing people to move somewhere is to attract them to visit. Rather than raising parking meter rates why do we not increase the number of parking spots? It seems every time there is a road renovation the number of parking spaces is reduced. Look at the recent York Street make over. There used to be a number of curbside parking spots both sides of York, in front of the Market and even a couple East of Macnab Street. Now they are all gone. Making it more difficult to drive and park downtown reduces visitors and will reduce the ability of the core to attract new inhabitants.
