My issue with it is that it'll discourage people from coming downtown and isn't that counterproductive? Sure they'll make more in parking fees but less in business generated taxes/money.

The Casino hasn't really hurt Cleveland any on the parking issue, even if it does hack me off that some of my favorite cheap parking decks in downtown Cleveland have become expensive casino parking decks (from $5-$10 a game to $25 a game, but free if you're gambling at the casino.).
