A total of 19 people gathered Thursday evening for the fourth public meeting of the Take Back the Boulevard initiative at Eagle Rock City Hall.
Sponsored by the Eagle Rock Chamber of Commerce, the meeting was aimed at discussing parking issues along Colorado Boulevard. Attendees included commercial building owners, entrepreneurs, residents and Field Deputy Nate Hayward from the CD 14 office of .
Besides recapping some of the information presented in past TBTB meetings and asking attendees about parking issues important to them, Thursday’s event focused on a key issue, according to Eagle Rock Chamber of Commerce Vice-President Allen Yap: “Is parking a problem [on Colorado]—is it a problem at a specific time of the day?”
Yap, who runs ETY Parts, Inc., an automobile spare parts store on Colorado, said he told the meeting that he has “been on the boulevard for the past 20 years” and that from his perspective, the busiest time on the stretch of Colorado near his store is during lunch time.
“People who go to Colorado also worry about the cost of parking and about getting a ticket,” he said.
