On Revere Beach – Valet parking would solve a lot of problems

August 18, 2010
By

The parking curfew along the length of Revere Beach should not be altered to suit the specific needs of various businesses operating on Revere Beach.

The parking curfew right now treats everyone equally – and this is the way it should remain in order for it to be fairly implemented.

The State Police have said this and made it clear.

We entirely agree with the State Police in this instance.

That being said, if any business – and it is mainly restaurants crying out for help – needs additional parking, there is plenty of room in parking lots on Ocean Avenue that could accommodate hundreds of automobiles as part of a valet parking system.

Valet parking is flawless when run correctly.

Valet parking for those businesses without enough private parking is the way to go – not apportioning spaces to various businesses at the expense of a very well run parking curfew operation.

The state cannot be placed in the position of selling, apportioning or leasing public parking spaces along the beach to bars and restaurants that claim to need them.

    This is the stupidest idea I’ve heard yet. Are you just trying to thwart the planned reclamation of the ocean ave lots by the Waterfront Square project? Why don’t we just get on with the business of turning that area into a proper business district and then there’d be no need for businesses to be located further up the beach anyway (well, maybe Kelly’s could be grandfathered).

    “The parking curfew treats everyone equally”…So everybody is treated like minor child and gets kicked off the beach at 10pm when in nearby Lynn cars can park to 11 pm.
    Local Politicians and the “Editorial Staff” of the Revere Journal should make up their minds, either you want to be pro business and encourage economic development and tax revenues to increase, or you just want to SAY that your pro business to sound and look good, in the eyes of voters, readers and taxpayers:
    Q. which one will it be guys?
    Stop putting one road block in front of another for any meaningful commerical activity on Revere Beach.
