We're a week away from the city installing parking meters along Wealthy Street in Cherry Hill, and Cherry Street in East Hills biz district. The employees are definitely going to seek free/unmetered parking off of those streets, now, which will push them into the residential areas. Which means the residents are going to potentially be impacted for finding parking "where they used to." If there is a parking issue post-meters, the city will study that 3 block region and pitch the zone to the city commission as a parking permit program area. No matter what, there's definitely growing pains being felt regardless of the attempts to fix it! It's tough to say what the best solution is, yet.
I love this. Full-disclosure? I completely forgot that the city points thing was even a thing. I've never used it - and i'm a 32 year old female living and working in the city who is very clued into tech and GR city stuff. Definitely room for a marketing campaign to make this a broader conversation. There's no reason NOT to use this!
this is actually precisely what i was thinking! its entirely up to the driver to select a rider or not. i like the idea of registering your own car. i'm certainly open to that. the only thing it doesn't help with is any 'bonus/pre-set' parking when you get somewhere... so your car still sits in that location for however long you're there and adds to parking build-up (which is where a pinch is felt in east hills and west side right now where commercial development is increasing).
