Where have the parking places gone?

-A A +A
By The Staff

For approximately 10 years, I have had a standing luncheon engagement at a popular restaurant in the Mari-Mac Shopping Center.  I used to drive right up and park a half block or less away for a quick and convenient lunch.  But over the years things have changed and my friends and I have a hard time finding a place anywhere near the restaurant row at Mari-Mac to park. The problem built up slowly.

First, Mari-Mac began allowing its tenants to put dumpsters and shopping cart corrals in the parking places.  Then it allowed them to put storage pods and large storage trailers in the parking places. More recently Mari-Mac is allowing tenants to store trailers in its parking lot, which are used to sell food at fairs and other special events. In addition, the Mari-Mac management parks large pieces of heavy equipment in its lot like front-end loaders.  And at certain times of the year it stores large piles of snow in the parking places. All of these items displace the automobiles for which the parking lot was originally intended.
