Much Ado


NO PARKING METERS IN GOLDEN!Yesterday I had a picture of an old-fashioned parking meter in this space.  I intended it to be a cute graphic to indicate a discussion about paid parking.  Both City Council and City Staff contacted me about that image, because they do NOT plan to use parking meters, and they didn’t want people to get the impression that we will have them.   If we DO wind up with some paid parking downtown, payments will be made at kiosks, or possibly via smartphone app.  NO PARKING METERS.
