The Puerto Morelos Town Square: What do you think?

There has been some complaining in the press about the restaurants that put their tables & chairs in the street in front of their places in the evenings. Critics say that it is dangerous. Others find it part of the charm.

Since we on the subject of the Town Square -- I think it would be a GREAT idea if they shut the Town Square off to traffic starting at 5 pm! Then, restaurants could easily & safely pull out their tables & chairs. Families could stroll about. Artists could set up their wares. I think it would be quite lovely!

What is needed is Public Parking!! Currently, there is a privately owned lot that is south of the town square whose owner is kindly allowing the city to use as free public parking. However, this lot will eventually be developed and PoMo will be short on parking again.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?  Should businesses be allowed to use the streetsides? Do you think it's a good idea to close the park to car traffic in the evenings?
