137th in a series of posts on parking
The Parking Authority Board meets today: 4PM at their headquarters.
See the memo below: the exec dir did move immediately after the October 23 Board meeting to contact City Council about the free parking pilot program suggested by Councilwoman Van Wirt.
Gadfly — certainly skeptical of BPA’s intention, for the Board has shown noooo interest in such a program — sees the memo as an attempt to stifle the idea with a daunting homework assignment.
He’d have hoped for a meeting of the Board with interested Council members out of which a cooperative plan for a pilot might have emerged.
Of related interest is the provision for free parking in the Northside downtown for the holidays: see https://bethpark.org/news.
