JP Readers React to Parking Space Saving
The comments about whether you should be able to save an on-street parking space in winter have been pouring in.
The debate about whether it's OK to save your on-street parking space in Jamaica Plain during the winter months rages on. Here are a few of the dozens of comments JP Patch received over the past week.
Jerry O'Connor writes: "I have always been somewhat perplexed, and mildly curious, about this phenomenon. People say "I dug that space out" as if they had excavated a flat space out of a hillside, like a prairie homesteader."
Though most people agreed the practice is unfair, a few readers said they like the idea.
Zooloo writes: "THIS is a GREAT idea! Then people can have their spots when they come back! I am SO AGAINST residential parking permits!"
Reader Scott offered his own solution: "Bring Resident Parking to all of JP and it will solve the problem on Moraine Street. MA plates are in the minority, most of the cars have tags from NH, NJ, NY, RI, Oregon and Washington (wtf?)."
What's your take on the great parking space saving debate?
