I'm thinking they are heading towards installing parking meters everywhere they can. I say this because it's a dumb idea and the city is great for such moves. The effect will be to kill off more business. Plymouth seems to have been built without a plan.

The horrible parking meters are a two edged sword. On one side, shoppers don't want to pay for shopping when they can shop at the malls and big stores for free. The other side of the sword, the merchants and their employees will, AND YES THEY WILL)park in the available spaces near their store. They will park in front of someone else's store and the other merchant will park in front of their's . When customers come and see there is no parking, they will move on. To get people back into downtown shopping, the police has to do parking enforcemrnt regardless who is overstaying the one hour,two hour, or handicapped spaces. If there is no parking meters and no one is marking tires and writing tickets, you can forget about downtown.
