    The continued emphasis in Cumberland is to attract tourists and yet there is no free parking downtown where they hope the tourists will congregate. Take a look at the Times News lot, there is a locked gate and keep out signs. CBIZ used to keep their lot open after business hours but that seems to have ended. The parking lot at Canal place is metered and tourists don’t want to pay so that they can leave their cars and head somewhere else where they will also have to pay.
    The city should absorb this as the price of doing business.
    There is little enough to do but to be made to pay for the privilege is adding insult to injury.
