Better parking for the market

I think the City of Calabasas is missing an opportunity to create community goodwill and improve the traffic situation for the Saturday Farmers Market. I’ve noticed a number of vehicles recently that have been ticketed for parking in the eight to 10 prime parking spots on Calabasas Road immediately next to the market stalls.
