Donna DiFiore, owner of Delectables, hopes the city listens to the public about plans to install parking meters. Her restaurant and catering business has been at 533 N. Fourth Avenue for 35 years - and parking has always been an issue, she says.
The closure of East University Boulevard and North Fourth Avenue for streetcar construction has adversely affected business for the Epic Cafe, as well as many other small businesses along North Fourth Avenue and Congress Street.
Steven Flanagan, a regular at Epic Cafe, says the streetcar construction won't stop him from coming to the cafe. Epic Cafe owner Brian Wolff says the city's change of plans that extended construction almost cost him his business.
