I wonder how the merchants of Seaside feel about this. Personally, I detest valet parking and paying to park, and there's no way I will pay to go shop or to eat out around here. There are too many other fantastic restaurants and shops in the area to choose from where I can pay $5 less for dinner, not hand strangers my keys, not worry about what I left in the car while i'm there, etc, etc, etc. How might this affect the surrounding areas? You know people will park in front of the shops of Watercolor or in the Watercolor and Seagrove (AND Seaside) neighborhoods and walk in to Seaside to avoid valet... I am finding it very hard to believe they are trying this out as an option. I think the employee shuttle is a good solution to help ease parking woes, but cutting down on 'traffic' by charging to park? (And granted, I don't know if the idea is to help traffic issues, or WHAT the purpose of this was) If it's to ease traffic, well, less traffic equals less customers, doesn't it? How does this help the merchants of Seaside? As a local, I will never pay to park in Seaside. I doubt I'm the only one.
