  1. “City Council votes to relax required parking for new development…” If the Garcetti-driven small lot ordinance isn’t bad enough, there goes the neighborhood again. I’m fine with the business end getting relief on parking spaces, but residential development? Really? You can’t assume that a denser city with no parking will suddenly push all the commuters out overnight and suddenly we’re San Francisco. A lot needs to change before that happens and I think starting from this angle is analogous to putting the “cart before the horse.”

    • yeah that doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. you are absolutely right in your assertion that we are not SF and people are still going to use their cars. I am obviously REALLY cynical as I immediately leap to the thought that when the city makes these exceptions, they are thinking about all of the new income they’ll make from parking tickets. it’s a win-win for them.

  2. This city council just gets weirder all the time. Give the citizens the parking exemptions. You guys just suck, suck ,suck us dry. When cars spill out all over our neighborhoods and we can’t afford to pay for 15min. of parking. I’ll expect you to put up a sign, ” Problems caused by City Council 2012 Square”.
