FRINGE PARKING IN RELATION TO TRAFFIC CONGESTION

FRINGE PARKING FACILITIES CAN RETURN THE ACCESSIBILITY TO CITIES WHICH WAS LOST THROUGH TRAFFIC CONGESTION. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT A WELL-CONCEIVED AND COMPLETE PATTERN OF FRINGE PARKING FACILITIES BE DEVELOPED, PREFERABLY BY A PARKING AUTHORITY OR OTHER SPECIFICALLY DESIGNATED MUNICIPAL AGENCY. WHEN NECESSARY THE RIGHT OF EMINENT DOMAIN SHOULD BE EXERCISED TO OBTAIN PROPERLY SITUATED FRINGE FACILITY SITES. FREEING OF THE DOWNTOWN TRAFFIC FLOW IN THE BIG CITY IS FORESEEN AS OFF-STREET PARKING IS PROVIDED AND CURB PARKING REMOVED, AND AS A PROPER PATTERN OF FRINGE PARKING FACILITIES KEEPS THE ALL-DAY WORKER PARKER AND OTHER LONG- TIME PARKERS OUT OF THE DOWNTOWN AREA. AN ACCOMPANYING BOON TO TRANSIT IS ENVISAGED, BECAUSE OF MORE SHORT-HAUL BUSINESS WITHIN THE FRINGE, AND LESS NON-PROFIT OR LOW-PROFIT LONG HAUL BUSINESS OUTSIDE OF IT. /AUTHOR/
