We had many <br />merchants screaming at us last year and this spring not to close the entrance because it was ruining <br />their business. It looks like which option is better is business dependent. When we close at wood road <br />we still grid lock the town north of 9 preventing people north of 9 to get to your business. You must <br />have people that would normally drive over from closer in Los Gatos. <br />Thank you. We are starting a parking study soon to see how could/should change parking in terms of <br />hours, more of it, how to deal with employee parking, and high school parking. I will pass on your <br />Saturday request on to staff. <br />Rob <br />On Thu, Aug 2, 2018 at 12:06 AM, <bill.reynolds > wrote: <br />Hello Rob, <br />It was great to receive you email updating all the great work you and the council have been <br />doing. <br />I wanted to give you feedback on two issues to consider. <br />1. Allowing the overpass to be open has really hurt Saturday business. Southern Kitchen's <br />sales are down $3k-$4k over the weekend. Saturday traffic keeps everyone away from Los <br />Gatos. It really hurts the town. Implementing last years program routing traffic back on to <br />17 is highly recommended. <br />2. The Saturday time limitation ordinance is not good for the town, First, it is not really a <br />work day and could be a great shopping day if people could park and spend a good part of <br />the day. I would like to see the parking be identical to Sunday. <br />Final note...If there is anything I can do to help you be re-elected, let me know. <br />Sincerely, <br />Bill at the Boston Chowder House. <br />
