And ongoing issue on Clark Street is the abuse of residential visitor parking permits by one of the owners and many employees of Christopher Martins restaurant. From the morning hours until the closing of the bar (every single day of the week) the employees park in Zone 3 parking using residential parking permits, specifically Clark Street. Through talking to some of the employees I know they do not live in the Zone 3 area. They are not visiting, they are working. And the are using the permits to park on Clark Street more than the 10 days in a row that the city allows for use of it's visitor parking permits. After running into one of the owner's this afternoon as he parked in a spot I could have taken, I approached him and asked why he's abusing the visitor permits and making life difficult for the restaurants neighbors. To which he replied, "I'm visiting friends". I took a picture of his car. Maybe a traffic officer will check and make sure he's not visiting for more than 10 days straight? Does the city check the validity of the visitor passes it's issuing? Do they care enough about the residents who pay taxes to at least look into it?
