@ LA Just take a look at Chicago to see how quickly smaller zones can become a nightmare. There are many, many very small zones that are really designed to only serve the residents of that specific area. In some cases, one side of a block will be one zone and the other side will be a different zone--meaning you can't park across the street from your house!

That seems like bad design, not an inherent problem. Many neighborhoods are clearly defined (or close to), with natural dividers (e.g., Rock Creek Park or commercial districts). What's more, one could implement a rule that allows a person with a pass for a given neighborhood to park in another neighborhood so long as it is within 1-2 blocks of their neighborhood. This avoids problems for people who live near borders of their neighborhood.
