Residential Parking Permits (RPP)

March 12, 2008 at 10:12 pm 1 comment

That’s what the two PlaNYC workshops in the past months were about—do Forest Hills residents want them, and in what shape and size?

An excellent synopsis of Michael Bloomberg’s RPP plan, presented today, can be found on Streetsblog. All neighborhoods can opt in for RPP, but Forest Hills in particular would have an extra incentive to consider it, should congestion pricing go through, because we would be faced with becoming a park-and-ride for those Lon Gilanders who don’t want to pay $8—or whatever the promised land’s entry fee would be—and would instead drive to FoHi, park their cars on my street-your street, and jump aboard the LIRR for a brief trip to Penn Station. If there were to be RPP, it would be at our doing, meaning, we would have to petition en masse our local community board (#6) in Fall ’08 to make it happen.

You might want to familiarize yourself with what this is about…unless congestion pricing overall gets canned, a concern of some people now that #9 is on the outs. Still, Splitting Hairs keeps emphasizing the congestion pricing debate because Spitzer will be gone on Monday but the issues that dog NYC’s streets will remain.
