Public Private, Handicapped, and LA


Public Private, Handicapped, and LA

The city of Los Angeles is considering “going out” for a public private partnership on it parking. However there is a minor problem.

Laws in California require that handicapped parkers be given “free” parking both on and off street. This of course causes a lot of issues. I commented on the San Francisco concerns in this blog, and Don Shoup has taken up the banner for Los Angeles. Read his comments on PT’s Web Site here.

The gist is that if Handicapped parking is free, there are a number of problems. First of all, the potential buyer (lessee) of parking spaces can’t really determine how much money will be coming in , since the number of handicapped permits is unknown.

Second, the incidence of cheating is legend.

The potential partner with Los Angeles is going to bid the number down, because of the unknown factors. Read Don’s comments. He has a solution.
