The city of red deer need to incorporate restricted parking times (i.e. 1 hour max) where no parking meters exist in the downtown area on high demand streets to STOP those that do not live in this area from parking unrestricted all day. Residents in the area should be issued parking permits so they can park with no restriction. This will restrict daily abusers who want FREE parking at the expense of local residents and at the expense of paid parking lots in our downtown area which decreases our parking revenue. These FREE BE PARKING ARTISTS need to be stopped and stop taking advantage of local residents and contribute to our parking revenue in OUR DOWNTOWN. There is no room for these FREE BE PARKERS TO USE AND ABUSE OUR DOWNTOWN AND THE RESIDENTS THAT LIVE HERE.
