Salem City Manager Bill Gruen told the Salem City Council Monday night of the 14 downtown business owners who responded to a survey, most favored continuing the present two-hour parking limits as they exist now.

Gruen told the council, as a result, he doesn't see a need to consider changes. However, he feels more needs to be done to promote free long-term parking.

"I think we can do a better job promoting those areas that there is no limit on public downtown parking. We're looking at doing some improvements west of the downtown Theatre and City Hall. We already have the Jefferson Steet parking lot that was built. There are public spaces that are time unlimited east of Kane, ABC, and south of M and M Cafe. We're looking at a combination of physical signage and in building presence pointing out where those spaces are."

Gruen was pleased to hear none of the 14 businesses that responded were considering to move out of downtown because of the parking situation.
