Hands off parking spaces

Nancy Ward
Monday April 08, 2002

For over a month, the City of Berkeley has posted barriers on the 2200 block of Derby Street reading “no parking” for a certain period in front of six of our houses. At the end of the period they added two weeks to the prohibition. They did this a third time. During this time no work was done. Now they have changed the signs to “no parking” until Dec. 2. 

Still no work has been done and no one in the city has responded to numerous calls asking what is going on. 

Parking is very tight in our neighborhood and the loss of spaces creates a big problem. 

This may seem a small matter affecting only a few people but it is indicative of the city's complete indifference to its citizens. They have an obligation to at least explain their plans.
