BTW, this topic is another example of a NA wanting to run things like a fiefdom in which old ideas reign supreme. As with almost every other NA, the PADNA is obsessed with parking. It has become a very contentious issue, and it is disappointing to see some members actively lobbying the parking authority and the city to implement new rules that directly affect the neighborhood residents. Now, they want to see EV parking greatly reduced or completely removed, under the guise of parking availability, arguing that there isn't enough demand for designated EV parking. I hope the city holds the line, as we should be embracing and encouraging the use of such cars to help reduce contamination, and exhaust fumes, while also doing a tiny little part towards preserving regional environmental health. Ultimately, this is a chicken or the egg debate: do you wait for the demand to materialize? Or, do you encourage that demand by building out the necessary infrastructure? I say, let's be proactive.
