Increased parking is scary

  • Follow Letters

I am still striving to understand where members of Augusta’s planning commission were hiding their collective common sense when they gave a temporary permission slip for more parking to the Plantation Blood haunted house in south Augusta.

Residents are complaining about too much traffic. Therefore, the commission, in all its wisdom, OKs more parking to add to the traffic, noise and chaos! What?

Parking can actually reduce

Parking can actually reduce traffic. If drivers have a place to park, then they park, not circle the lot, park in yards, on the street, etc. Parking need is based on the interest in the destination, not the other way around generally speaking.

That said, I would agree that perhaps the use is not in the best place for a "commercial" type application, at least to the level of interest it has reached. I'm not completely familiar with the neighborhood so I cant comment on that directly, but commerce and residences usually do not mix well. Adding some temporary parking, however, does make for a better venue.......... even for those who do not frequent said establishment.
