Cut-throughs make Inklings lot a park and ride

Original post made by resident, Downtown, on Mar 16, 2017

I have been watching the same people park in the middle of the "Inklings customers only" lot every morning about 6 AM. They walk to the curb on Main Street and wait a few minutes for their ride to show up. What a bunch of fine upstanding citizens these are. This city makes it so easy for the cut-throughs (looooooonnnng green lights for them to avoid making the poor little things slow down), little enforcement of the speeding and left-turn-lane-as-a-passing-lane violations, no enforcement of the ones who run the red lights and wait in the intersections for the traffic to move. Of course, this will only get worse with all of the new housing that has been approved. Not to mention those who park in the red zones near Starbucks because "I'm just getting a cup of coffee therefore the red zone doesn't apply to me". Come on PPD, target these creeps and maybe they will go elsewhere. If the lights were staggered to cause a 30 minute wait to get through town they would all go back to the freeway where they belong. I hope that Inklings decides to do something about these people abusing their privately owned and marked parking lot.

Since Inklings is not paying market rates for rent due to they being a religious organization and not having to pay taxes, the tax-payers are subsidizing their rent. In this case, tax-payers should be entitled to park in the lot.
