Chamber Calls For Dialing Back Amherst Parking Meter Hours
The Chamber is encouraging Amherst officials to dial back their enforcement of parking meters during evening hours, in response to complaints from visitors and businesses downtown that the recent extension of fee parking in Amherst Center from 6 PM to 8 PM was negatively affecting businesses. In a letter to the Parking Working Group earlier this week, Chamber President Peter Vickery reported on the recent feedback: "The longer enforcement period has generated considerable irritation on the part of shoppers, diners and patrons of Amherst Cinema, all of whom have a choice as to where to shop, dine, and seek quality entertainment."
