Parking Permit Survey Results: "Your survey is poorly introduced, poorly constructed, and of no use in addressing the issues."
Not everyone liked our survey, but it produced unambiguous results.  109 people responded, 100 of them members.  In brief, raise permit fees (65% support) to $70-100 (31%) if not more (34%), cap permits at two per household (55%) or maybe one (27%), charge a lot more for the second car than the first (75%), restrict parking to year-round residents (60%) but don't do away with short-term visitor parking (51%).  Many interesting comments.  For full results, click here.
