Letter: More businesses in Brookfield? Where to Park?

To the Editor:

The desire of Brookfield to bring more business to Ogden Avenue has a problem that no one wants to recognize and that is: Where are they going to park the cars for their employees and customers?

For years, cars have been parking on the sidewalks and forcing people to walk on the roadway, and never are any of those car given a ticket. Why?

Ogden Avenue is a state road and I wonder if the village is waiting for the state to someday come in and start towing those cars off the sidewalks.

Maybe then the village will do something about it.

One more thing, if you have to drive off of Park Avenue on to Ogden, it is hard to see if it is clear of cars coming from the east.
