"Why is it fair for the city to give residents free parking but insist that churchgoers should not get any free parking?"

Residents pay the taxes used to provide roads, repairs, police to monitors law breaking on roads, etc... They also pay RPP fees for same (though they are too low). Churches are tax exempt, and out of town churchgoers don't pay. What they may pay in for sales taxes, etc... are no more nor any different than suburban bar-goers on weekends.

I think that covers the fairness concern you raise fully. Thanks.
