It is our hope that we can gain voluntary compliance from business owners who comprise the majority of those in violation. By policing themselves, we will not have to take an enforcement action. By parking in the city parking lots, this will free up valuable space for shoppers to park and conduct business downtown.
If we fail to gain voluntary compliance and enforcement action becomes necessary, we will be left with no alternative other than to ticket all in violation, business owners, shoppers, and visitors. I fail to see how this could help stimulate business so desperately needed in the downtown area. Once again, we are asking for voluntary compliance with the law and truly hope business owners will work with us on this issue.
