Milk Pail Market needs parking to survive, why not make the public benefit that existed before MG purchased the land for phase 2. Why not some marketing agreements, adverts in the apartments.

Shared parking as the public benefit.

This is absolutely ridiculous. The Milk Pail only needs 17 more parking spaces to meet their requirement, which a huge shopping mall can easily afford to spare, and yet they are refusing to make a deal on parking so they can force out someone who OWNS THE LAND and force them to pay rent on a new property. Seems to me the Council could easily make this problem go away by either a) forcing the developer to allow access to their parking spaces (like Milk Pail customers aren't going to park in MG's spaces anyway?); or b) removing the parking requirement altogether. The Milk Pail is a small, popular and successful business. We're not talking about giving concessions to a business that is struggling due to a poor business model. We're talking about throwing them a lifeline because they are being forced out due to developer greed and Council antipathy. There will be MORE than enough parking spaces at the new development to accommodate anyone who needs to shop at the Milk Pail. Council need to pull their thumbs out.
