HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - A pilot program to see if overnight parking on Holland streets is feasible may be decided next month. Holland City Council members debated the issue back-and-forth in a work-study session last night, discussing the pros and cons of not only eliminating the decades-old measure, but when such an experiment could take place. City officials say that it should begin after Tulip Time, in order to prevent possible conflicts with tour buses parking near downtown venues, while other wonder if having it in place during Holland’s signature event would help in make a true determination about permanently lifting the ban. Proponents say that overnight street parking is needed with a growing number of multi-vehicle families, while opponents cite safety and security issues in stumping to keep the ban in place. The measure will be voted on next month.
