Letter: Is it the parking?


City Hall (and this includes our five elected council people) has, for generations, believed that building bigger roads and more parking would relieve bumper-to-bumper congestion. There is no academic evidence to support this belief.

  1. This Writer Knows that Governing by Hope Instead of Fear Works. “Safety” is often a smokescreen to hide an agenda-driven transition from being free to being controlled in everything you do.

  2. Laguna Residents are once again on-the-menue. When Parking Occupancy grows by 4.5% (LCR Caltrans) means occupancy doubles every 16-years. Our city’s parking management team want to build more parking: Undergrounding -$500 Million, nine parking structures -$350 Million, two arterial freeways -$350 Million all blessed by a church acquisition for $23 Million. We are on-the-menue with no shred of evidence that parking supply satisfies visitor’s appetite for parking occupancy.
