CCRA Newsletter

CCRA wishes At-Large Councilman David Oh a speedy and complete recovery & shares our sympathy with his family.  We are appalled at what happened.  (The news story if you haven't seen it.)
CCRA is unafraid of the 3rd rail!  Is $35 for on-street residential parking permits ridiculously cheap when parking in our neighborhood is a nightmare & only getting worse?  Should permit fees go up?  Is there another solution?  Make yourself heard.  Take our survey & share your thoughts here.
