Vote in this Week's Poll on Parking
By Charlie Sahner
Until what hour should vehicles be allowed to use the parking lot next to New Hope's Borough Hall (formerly St. Martin of Tours church)?
That's the central question to be discussed and voted upon at the next New Hope Borough Hall meeting in two weeks.
Right now, the meters at the lot stop running at 9 p.m. (as they do in most places around town), but parked vehicles are expected legally to vamvoose soon thereafter.
Some neighbors wouldn't mind less of a "circus-like" atmosphere, which they attribute to drunken revelers parking at the nearby lot late at night, by and large. Others ask why this parking lot won't let patrons remain until at least 2:30 a.m., when many bars, restaurants, clubs, and other parking lots close for the night.
What's your view?

9 p.m.? 11 p.m.? Overnight?
