Default parking at ss square?

This is exciting with remodel of Katie balls, new Morse ctr etc... Does anyone know about parking yet? I imagine we'll need quite a bit with the square, movies, shops, restaurants, Katie balls and our new theater

What is there to know besides the fact that there is no room to provide any more parking close to the square; and that no one has yet seen fit to organize a shuttle service from rec centers to squares?

There are 118 posts on the thread called "the Sharon" and a lot of them are about parking.

I enjoy the car cruise in each month at SS. there are thousands of people there and I always find a parking place. I think you are creating a problem that doesn't exist.

I would like to see ALL parking on the streets around the commercial area of all three squares to be "golf cart only", with the exception of a few handicapped spots. You can fit 5 golf carts in the space of one car. All cars would be parked behind the stores in the parking lots. Only 2 golf carts can be parked in a regular parking spot behind the stores. I also think this would look nicer too. Just an idea, but I am sure it's not original.

I would suggest that when folks refer to no parking they mean close in....which is what we all want right?

I would guess there is sufficient parking when one looks 4-6 blocks out.

Have you been to the fair (anywhere)?
One of the theme parks (excluding the trolley that picks you up)?
Any sports stadium?
The theatre in a bigger city?

Almost all involve a substantial walk.

Which is exactly why the majority of participants at those events are not over the age of 60. There are only so many handicapped parking spots.

Multi-level subterranean parking below Spanish Springs I hear. Oh wait, this is Florida. It will be above Spanish Springs.

I made this suggestion on TV survey. Cars just take up too much room.

Just up the street form the Bowling alley they are building in the field on the left across from the Town Houses. Maybe parking garage going up? Haha April Fools. Probably more Town Houses in the half million plus dollar range?

The squares are not just for TV residents. Ergo, cars can park anywhere they want. They are public streets.

love the idea of making all parking on Spanish Springs for golf carts with an appropriate number of car handicap spots. Brilliant! Hope it happens!!!

So what's wrong with walking a couple of blocks. After all we are suppose to be "America's Healthiest Hometown". And if we aren't yet, walking a few blocks every so often will help.

Not sure the golf cart idea is good. Just cannot see myself in a dress and heels riding in golf cart. Also like many others prefer the car when its pouring out, lightening, too cold, brutally hot etc.. Weather not always cooperative so option for car or cart I believe would be better suited
