    Tim Redmond should know that about RPP.

    Disabled placard abuse is getting a lot of coverage in the Bee — and it is a problem — but the other big story about parking in Sacramento that Streetsblog readers ought to know about is that the city is actually moving to implement demand-based pricing in all of Downtown and Midtown. 

    The proposal includes extending meter hours in the central city (currently they end at 6 p.m.), expanding the residential parking permit program to prevent spillover parking in the neighborhoods, upgrading to the latest generation meters, creating a city parking app (similar to SFPark’s) and expanding the city’s management of private sector parking, among other things. The city council approved this strategy unanimously. It still faces final approval, but it’s clear that they get this stuff. 

    On the agenda for this Thursday’s Planning & Design Commission meeting is a report that includes a recommendation to remove parking minimums in the Central Business District, and a relaxation of parking minimums throughout Midtown.

    This is progress.
