Must be a better parking solution

Recently there have been some letters regarding the parking situation in Chestnut Hill.

I went to Palladio’s to pick up a picture that my wife had framed for me. It was a Christmas gift but because of her illness she didn’t get to give it to me. Palladio’s had called to say that the picture was ready to pick up. I had pulled into the lot, which was about half full, parked the car, walked into Palladio’s and came out and found a ticket on the car. This is absurd. There has got to be a better way!

I mentioned to the parking attendant that it wasn’t surprising that the businesses were having trouble, and he said, “But it’s the businesses who wanted it done this way.” I realized that he is correct, and it is but another manifestation of how the Chestnut Hill business community is so lacking in creative ways to make the commercial aspects of Chestnut Hill successful.
