Red-light cameras dead again in Lake Worth, but commissioners endorse $1-an-hour parking in downtown lots

Click title for link to Palm Beach Post article. A plus for nixing the red light cameras, another obstacle for businesses attempting to attract customers in this economy. Where is this "mobility plan?" The Commission might want to check out the recommendations from the group of transportation professionals that I brought here in 2007 who spent a day in Lake Worth looking at our transportation issues or the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council charrette from 2009 or the bicycle plan that we worked on when I was on the CRA. Regardless, it is the wrong time to implement paid parking in the downtown.
