This is the seventh winter this blog has been around, and I seem to write about it every year. Curb to curb snow plowing is a foreign concept in the city of Scranton, and there's no need for it to be avoided-- especially downtown. Here's what you do. Establish alternate side of the street parking after a storm so the plows can get in there and clean the parking spaces.
Things will be a little different in the months to come, and not for the better.
So, not only are you paying more for a snow covered and slippery space, you'll stand a better chance of getting a ticket if you park in one. I thought we were trying to get more people to shop and establish businesses downtown-- not drive them away. We're paying more, and getting less.
I know the city needs the money, but the whole concept doesn't seem quite fair to me.
