    I have a feeling the parking permits cost increase is to match admin costs? Has there been any progress to allow the city to charge something closer to market rate? Off-street parking is $300/month, on-street will be $8.30/month.

    I’ll gladly pay $8.30/month for my fast pass with Muni free on Sundays.

    The idea of restricting the use of a public parking lane that every city taxpayer is funding based on your address is rather crazy in the first place. Should we check ZIP codes to allow access to parks as well?

    A fair system would be that residential blocks can petition for permits if they agree take over the cost of maintaining their street. The cost of a permit would then be the maintenance cost of the street divided by the number of the people in the zone who buy a permit.

  • Anonymous

    SteveS: Yes. Then eventually, perhaps those zone permit holders could band together and contract with the city DPW to handle road maintenance in their zones in order to reduce their costs.
    Or the city could simply save everyone the hassle and charge market rate from now.
