Of course aesthetics are important


Of course aesthetics are important

In this article the fine citizens were asked whether or not they wanted to ban garages in their downtown area. They sided with banning, but it was non binding. Now the city council has to decide. There seems to be some wisdom in the Westwood area of New Jersey. You can have garages and they can add to your community.

Will it cost more, sure.  But a multiuse people friendly garage would not detract, but ADD to the community. They are right if there is truly a need for parking, it should not be an either or situation. The local council is looking to experts and from what I read, the experts have the right idea.

I just love it when people decide that to "keep the character" of the community they must ban cars, horses, and probably everything but wheelbarrows. Williamsburg is great, but you will notice that people only visit, no one actually lives there.
