It seems that parking has been a problem for a long time in the tiny little downtown area of Putnam. Probably happens in all small towns.
I don't get it.
I go downtown at the times when it is the busiest, and have never had a problem parking. Of course I don't look for, expect, or need to park at the front door of where I am going.
We are all supposed to be getting more heart healthy, working out, entering walks/races, so why are we not willing to park and walk a bit in our every day situations?
Seriously, the furthest I've parked and walked to any of my downtown Putnam destinations is probably 1/4 of a mile. After having to sit on my butt all week at work and driving in my car, I am thrilled to walk a few extra steps!
I understand that not everyone can walk any distance more than a few steps due to a handicap. However, I am guessing that most of us can walk a few steps under our own power ~ perhaps the equivalent of a city block or two.
If you accept and enjoy the few extra steps, you will find plenty of parking in Putnam!
I am a Putnamaniac that has never had a parking problem in downtown Putnam!
