Stop Alternate Side Parking Now !

PLEASE SIGN THE  ONLINE ELECTRONIC PETITION  (see note re: your address->)

Currently there is a proposal to create alternate side street parking to allow street cleaning. 
Alternate Street parking will only make a bad situation worse for the following reasons:

●   The financial strain to residents

●   The carbon footprint impact from cars moving around and idling

●   The ineffectiveness of street cleaning equipment and lack of creative alternatives

●   Adding to an unsolved expanding problem with parking

●   Increased polarization and conflict within the community

●   The counter-productive disruption to business

●   Personal and professional hours spent unproductively

●   Unnecessary mental and physical stress on citizens

●   Adding another punitive tax burden on citizens via additional parking fines 

●   Perpetuating the unaccountability of developers, visitors, business owners, and residents to be responsible for keeping the neighborhood clean

●   Damage by equipment to trees - especially young trees

Obviously something needs to be done as our neighborhood has grown so quickly. 
We need our officials to present a beneficial plan for the future that does not throw gas on the fire. 
We have been asking for Municipal Long and Short Term Parking and/or Resident Parking Permits.
Let’s not put the horse before the cart.

At the same website you will find…

●  A map of the affected areas and hours of the current proposal. 

●  A downloadable petition sheet to collect additional signatures.

●  Links to where to send personal letters. (Nothing anonymous please).

To have even greater impact than just a petition
write your personal reasons, hardships, and suggestions
for better solutions to our representatives.
