    The Stockton parking plan is awesome. Hopefully it will lead to permenant implentation (I’d even take just getting the discussion out there). Any talk of how deliveries will be handled? That is a major sticking point for Transit-only Stockton.

  • That Larkspur lot is such a waste of space: 9 acres, 1,600 spaces… at least it gets people out of their cars for some of the trip.  It’s well-placed for walkable, transit-oriented development but instead it’s taken up by cars.  Such a shame.
