Restaurants already taxing Mystic parking

I was very impressed by the research and thought put into the comments made by most of the Smiler's Wharf opponent speakers the night of July 8. From one of them I learned that Stonington zoning requires restaurants to provide parking for one in four seats in the restaurant. With all the new restaurants cropping up in Mystic over the past few years, it is no wonder we have a parking problem. How many people have four people in their car when they go out to dinner? Stonington should quickly reduce this requirement to one in two and apply it to the extraordinary development proposed in downtown Mystic. Red 36 only has enough parking now because the site is not developed.
