Parking problems

Dear Editor:An opportunity to watch my niece perform with the Warren High School choir group was almost ruined Tuesday due to the mass of cars unable to find parking near the Downey Theatre. Cars were circling in search of a spot but to no avail. I even tried the employee lot next to City Hall and noticed that vehicles were parking illegally in slots marked for fire personnel only. I can only imagine how the parking situation will worsen when the housing project is built nearby. And if the city is successful in making the theater successful again, where will people park? I believe Tuesday was a warning that the city must do something about parking near City Hall and the library. The situation is already bad but it looks to become much worse in the future. -- Marilyn Ochoa, Downey
