It would be legally justifiable and fair to allot houses of worship and other nonprofit organizations (and maybe for-profit organizations) a number of RPP's in proportion to the land that they occupy, or their front footage along the curb. That's less than many might want, but it might take care of those who need the spaces the most.

Another possibility would be to allow back-in angle parking on the non-residential side of the street at certain times, on certain streets. Perhaps by permit only to organizations who will provide an attendent to usher people into the spaces efficiently. That might also have a traffic calming effect. Maintaining high volumes of throughout on some streets is less essential on weekends.
