and restaurateurs MUST provide the necessary parking for what they build.

dollars and CRA/TIF funds should not fund private parking needed by

required by city codes.
new garage on the corner of A1A and NE 1st. St. has had a tough time
generating business. A resident of the Surf Club across the street counted
