Potential solution to Breck parking woes (letter)

I recently read with interest about the dilemma of managing parking and vehicular congestion in Breckenridge. This is a common problem, especially in municipalities in vacation areas where there are huge ebb and flows of traffic.

As a resident of Sarasota, Florida, I am involved with a group grappling with the same issue for our also tourist-driven economy. While doing so, I’ve come across some interesting readings.

One is Jeff Speck’s book “A Walkable City.” If you happen to have a copy, there’s a wonderful story of mistakes made and righted by none other than Aspen. It’s on page 113. It may be worth reading and considering.
