Craig Silberman: Parking enforcement

The city of Grass Valley enacted several ordinances designed to improve the downtown shopping and dining experience. But they don’t enforce any of them. Now that everything is reopening, and people are talking about the challenge of parking with Mill Street closed, the city should enforce the 3-hour limit in the parking lots and streets, so employees and business owners aren’t taking up all the spaces that should be reserved for their customers. They should also enforce the no-smoking ordinance, and consider designated smoking areas with receptacles so we don’t have to wade through all the butts on the sidewalks.
