Reading comprehension is pretty key. And I quote " I live in Cleveland Park. On street parking is never an issue except for on Connecticut Avenue, and streets within one block or less than flank it."

So yes, the CP listserv is filled with snark about not finding parking on Connecticut Ave or within a block of CT on sidestreets that flank it, which is precisely what I said. Then again, these are the same people who are all up in arms about it, and who already live in CP and are of the demographic that wants to drive their 90K BMW the 3 blocks to Palena, rather than walk to dinner.

I'm sorry, but you aren't ever going to win an argument with that kind of cognitive dissonance, and accomodating the parking requirements of those people are about as "anti" GGW urbanist policies as it gets.

I have never heard of anyone living on Quebec, or Rodman, or Porter, Macomb, or Newark ever complain that they couldn't find street parking for them or a house guest.

All this is, is a solution in search of a problem that doesn't exist.
