2nd (West) at Virginia, Looking Southeast (see more)

The second Performance Parking town hall has just wrapped up (read the FAQ on Tommy's web site, the bill itself, my post on it back in December, and my summary of Tuesday's town hall to get the background). Since this meeting was held on Capitol Hill, the focus was more on the impacts around Eastern Market, Pennsylvania Avenue, and Barracks Row. Since these areas are somewhat outside of my mandate, my report will be mercifully shorter than last night's.
It was a very different audience reaction than from the residents of Southwest at Tuesday's meeting--a surprising number of people spoke out about not wanting the plan on their blocks at all. But for those who think the basics are a good idea, there was a lot of talk about the need for serious enforcement (like immediate towing of non-residential vehicles) and concern about whether DPW is up to the task. And that even $50 tickets won't be enough to dissuade some ballpark goers from taking their chances on the residential streets. There was also a lot of griping about the shortage of surface lots and a strong feeling that RFK as free satellite parking won't work.
A surprising concern mentioned was Congress getting up in arms about the plan if their staffers who park all day on local streets with little fear of ticketing suddenly start getting clobbered with tickets, or if a Congressman's car gets towed under some zero-tolerance plan like some were advocating.
As with Tuesday night, questions on guest passes and church parking were met with "we're working on it."
Capitol Hill Tower residents should note that one of your own expressed a number of concerns about the parking plans for New Jersey Avenue and streets close by, and Tommy said he wants to set up a meeting at CHT to talk about issues specific to that block and the areas right around it.
There was no uniformity of opinion, but I'd characterize the meeting as definitely more intense and skeptical than the one with Southwest residents.
If you want to weigh in on anything you've heard about Performance Parking, go to the parking page on Tommy's web site and you can post your comments there.
Next step is the council hearing on the bill, on Jan. 30 at 6 pm. And I should also mention here that on Monday (Jan. 28) at 6:30 pm ANC 6D is having a special meeting to discuss and vote on whether they'll be supporting the parking plan at the council hearing. That meeting is at the ANC 6D offices at 25 N Street, SW, 2nd floor.
UPDATE: Be sure to see this blog post by Tommy Wells where he responds to some of the concerns brought up at the town halls.

Jan 30 not Mar 30

Thanks--March 30 is kind of ingrained in my typing fingers (Opening Day!).

If I am not mistaken, Capitol Hill staff who drive to work have free parking spaces in congressional lots and in the parking garages beneath the office buildings. So, it would make sense for them to hoof it down South Capitol Street to the ballpark -- especially those who work on the House side -- to avoid the traffic jams and the parking hassles. It would also make sense to provide a bus bridge from the ballpark to the Capitol South Metro station to get fans to the Orange and Blue Metro lines so that the Green Line doesn't get deluged.

This story also frosted me today.

Correct me if I don't remember this accurately, but I recall that it was Jerry Reinsdorf who advocated the Navy Yard location for the new ballpark because RFK was considered to be "too close" to Baltimore and moving the ballpark location was a way to appease Mr. Angelos. This is the same Jerry Reinsdorf who blasted the Players Union for being too greedy during the 1994 strike and turned around and signed free agent Albert Belle to one of the biggest contracts in baseball history at the time right after the strike ended. I love the way this guy rewrites history.


JD says: (1/24/08 12:08 AM)
The comment about Hill staffers was in reference to the many staffers who don't have free parking spaces in the congressional garages, and who park all day on nearby streets with little worries about getting tickets where they should only be able to park for two hours due to lack of enforcement.


Tony Corbo says: (1/24/08 9:30 PM)
Thanks for the clarification. I see where that would be a big problem.


Neighbor says: (1/25/08 4:52 PM)
The attendees who spoke out against the parking plan lived on Fourth Street, to the north of Pennsylvania, and are not in the proposed pilot parking zone.
