Parking Permit Survey Results: "Your survey is poorly introduced, poorly constructed, and of no use in addressing the issues."
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.
