Parking Ordinance Could Cost Businesses More

The Hayden City Council is considering revising its parking ordinance, which could increase startup costs for businesses. The proposed revision would affect landscaping in parking areas near businesses by requiring certain landscaping in order to make parking lots more aesthetically appealing.

Here's the story from the Coeur d'Alene Press. What's your thought on this; should businesses be required to make their lots look 'prettier' or is it a waste of time and money as it's just a place you park your car?
