Letter: Not that many cars
After reading the letters submitted by Greg DeJulio and Patty Grace, I feel the need to let you know the correct number of people and the number of vehicles that the “Pink Palace” has.
There is a grand total of nine apartments. There are 11 people living here. There are six vehicles owned by the 11 people who live here. You are both mistaken about the number of vehicles and people created by the “Pink Palace.”
If you both would like to, you can come on over at around 8 a.m. during the week and watch the people who work at various businesses in our area park their cars on Colorado Avenue between 10th and 11th to avoid having to move their cars every two hours or risk getting a ticket by parking elsewhere.
You can also get a better understanding about why people are parking on the street by walking down the alleys on the east side or the west side of Colorado. People use their off-street parking for storage or to make their back yards bigger. We have two bed and breakfasts and one short-term vacation rental that could add to the problem also.
The next time you make statements please do a little homework and come around to meet your neighbors. We’re all hard-working, and most of us are gone during the day, which opens up our parking spots. I know that when I get home from work I park my vehicle and hop on my bike to run my errands. You’ve probably seen me on the black bike that has brewery, rafting and skiing stickers with red milk crate on the back.
