Well, Twenty-Two & Crew finally opened successfully. So successfully, in fact, that it set off Parkinggate. Small town drama at its finest.
In a town where most people recognize most every one else’s vehicles, nothing triggers gossip quicker than parking in a “different” spot. And nothing triggers animosity faster than parking in someone’s habitual spot.
Now I have something to say to three different parties. First to the parkers: When you go to the big stores, are you the type of parker that wastes time and gas driving around trying to find the closest spot? Or do you park, get out, take a few deep breaths, and add to your steps? Think about it.
Next, when a business opens, parking should be part of the plan. Employees, customers and no surprises. Public property, private lots, planning.
And finally, Rockford, hello! There is a parking lot. A big one, part private and part public. Can you pave it, stripe it, light it? There is also a lot of street parking, especially in the evenings. A couple crosswalks would help, maybe some speed bumps for safety.
I’m just glad the fuss settled down. I hope things get sorted out down the road. Remember I am watching, your eye in the sky.
