Do Residents of Federal Housing Projects Have a Right to Free Parking Spaces? HELL YES! Check This Sign

You see what happens is that sometimes people who, you know, don’t qualify to live in a federal housing project are tempted to park their rides on federal propertah, you know, within half a click of City Hall.

So what happens is you end up with a sign like this one: “RESIDENTIAL PARKING ONLY – OTHERS WILL BE TOWED”

Q. Hey, how does with square with TRANSIT FIRST?

A. It doesn’t, not at all.

    The parking there is for those housing units, not for the public. Has nothing to do with “transit first.”

    I feel that if you are living in subsidized housing, you should not be allowed to own a car, or at the very least, there should be no parking built/available to you. Subsidizing rent is one thing, subsidizing parking–uh, no. This photo looks like Valencia Gardens, or is a similar arrangement. Their parking lot is way too big for the housing footprint and IMHO, unnecessary. And Rob: it has a lot to do with “transit first.” Public housing and transit are both publicly supported. If residents cannot afford full MUNI/BART/SAMTrans fare, then, with proper qualification they should be able to qualify for reduced fares.
