Does this make any sense?

Ok maybe it does — and I say up front I know absolutely nothing about this contract or the consultant’s relationship with the city. However Here’s my problem.

A consulting firm  – if you care who, go here to find out — has been hired by the city of Pismo Beach to determine if a parking structure should be built in the city. What do you think the odds are of the solution being

1. Raise on street parking fees
2. Remove parking requirements
3. Return the money made on the fees back to the area where it was collected.


A new parking structure. — Firms like the one mentioned in the article make their money building parking structures and by their nature, lean toward construction as a solution, just as a surgeon leans toward cutting. Its what they are trained to do. 

I can almost guarantee you that Pismo will have a new $10MM parking structure in a couple of years.

  1. Kudos to the Judge who fined these two lazy idiots. These guys should be ashamed of themselves. It doesn’t matter what WE think, because they don’t care about anyone else but themselves anyway. Maybe when they are paralyzed in a game of football will they think back to the day when they were cited for parking in these spaces and how tough it is to park and be disabled. I’m not disabled, nor do I have a permit, I am an advocate for these spaces and for the enforcement of same.
