The new math in downtown Norfolk: less parking = more customers

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 9, 2007 08:05 AM


Norfolk Town Meeting voters last week approved a bylaw change that will reduce the number of parking spots downtown businesses are required to provide for customers.

Selectman Jim Lehan said the move is intended to encourage more business development downtown. Voters also endorsed an update of the town's master plan.
