Here’s the pitch..
…and here’s the story, from a couple years back.
You cannot monetize public assets for individual company gain. Just because an app can be built, doesn’t mean it should be.
I’m a Co-Founder and CEO of a San Francisco based startup called CARMAnation (www.carmanation.com). We look to help solve parking issues via the true intentions of the sharing economy – working with the community to benefit the community. Our users share their PRIVATE available parking spots with one another.
Having tech startups trying to solve the parking problems with their own unique approach means there is a need to disrupt the industry. Technology is a wonderful thing, it can solve/simplify a lot of problems, but it has to be done right, otherwise “Monkey Parking” is what happens.”
I wonder how they’re doing.
Hey SFMTA! Where’s the Notice Warning Drivers to Not Park on Fell Here? – The Big Bay to Breakers TowawaySunday, May 15th, 2016
This is how things looked yesterday evening on Fell Street in the 94117. Do you see any warning signs about how everything parked on this stretch will get towed, with extreme prejudice, in a few hours?
Well sure. I can see:
AT&T / Verizon COWS temporary cell phone towers in the Golden Gate Park;
A whole mess of portapotties; und
A lot of metal fencing
But what about non-locals, your Airbnbers and your VRBOers – how should they be able to tell that they SHOULD NOT PARK HERE?
Well, off to the right, outside of the frame, there are a couple notices posted on light poles. And I’m sure that there are more notices at the other end of the block, near Masonic. But as far as what you can see on this side of this block, your notice is hiding behind the white Toyota Prius. Click on in, you might be able to spot the top of it.
Hey, is this sufficient notice?
The Dog What DIDN’T Bark: Mansion-Dwelling Millionaires in the Western Addition Seem to Have No Problem with THE URBAN SCHOOL ConstructionTuesday, January 26th, 2016
What’s this? It’s just a simple massive 50-feet steel beam double-parked for a long time in front of historic million-dollar-plus mansions.
Why? Well, it’s a part of the lengthy, noisy extension at THE URBAN SCHOOL, a private high school what costs three times (3x) as much as tuition at our University of California campuses.
And yet, nary a peep I’ve heard from the nabes.
The answer is that you live in the Inner Sunset. Sorry.
But if you want to say that you live in Windsor Terrace development or subdivision of the Inner Sunset, that’d be fine.
