Paso Robles officials hosted a community meeting to discuss parking in the city's downtown.

The community has experienced some contention over their pay-to-park program implemented in downtown last August.

The tenor of the community meeting was "change is hard." Some of the community members are upset about the amount parking is costing residents and business owners.

"Change is difficult. At tonight's meeting we learned -- we continue to hear some feedback. And a lot of it revovles around change is hard," said Caleb Davis, Commander of the Paso Robles Police Department. "We heard positive and negative with the program [at the meeting]."

On Wednesday, a meeting with stakeholders and downtown business owners will continue to discuss the future of parking in Paso Robles.
