Oh, where to park?

Woodstock Square Farmer's Market Woodstock Square Farmer's Market


When the City gets rid of handicap parking spaces on the Square during the Farmer's Market, it should create temporary handicap parking spaces, with temporary signs, to accommodate drivers who need these valuable parking spaces.

Will the handicapped drivers complain? Maybe.

Will those of us who see that they need their spaces? Yes.

The covered sign (left photo) was on Johnson St., where Jackson St. dead-ends into the Square. It's appropriately (and, I hope, legally) covered so that the vehicle of one Farmer's Market vendor is not illegally parked.

The blue car (right photo) had a handicap placard hanging from the inside mirror. Unfortunately, the driver could not find a legal place to park, so she just pulled into an open space, even though it was striped as a no-parking zone.

Could the City do a better job of anticipating the needs of its disabled drivers? You bet.
