Public Parking Facilities
231:114 Findings and Declaration of Necessity.
It is hereby found and declared:
I. That the free circulation of traffic of all kinds through the streets of the municipalities of this state is necessary for the rapid and effective fighting of fires, disposition of police forces, and transit of other emergency vehicles in said municipalities for the health, safety, morals and general welfare of the public, whether residing in or traveling to, through or from said municipalities in the course of lawful pursuits as well as for the sound economic development of such municipalities;
II. That in recent years the parking of motor vehicles of all kinds on the streets of said municipalities has so substantially impeded such free circulation of traffic as to constitute at the present time a public nuisance endangering the health, safety, morals and welfare of the general public, as well as endangering the economic life of said municipalities;
III. That such traffic congestion cannot be adequately abated except by provisions for sufficient off-street parking facilities; and that the enactment of laws to so provide off-street parking facilities is therefore a necessity in the public interest.
