In response to questions about parking.. New View (Acton MA) is placed in a car-oriented suburb. We were required to provide 2 car slots per household for our 24 households, between garages, drive up parking, and parking lot parking. That left a handful of spots in parking lots for visitors and a handicapped accessibility space. In theory this was going to be very tight. In practice it has generally been plenty. Two caveats/details: 1) We never painted in the parking space lines and numbers shown on our plan. Generally, it looks like people are parking tighter than they would if there were lines, so we end up with more space. I don't know if this will hold up over time, but it is one side effect of procrastination. As far as I now there is no active plan for getting the lotlines in. Every so often, neighbors actively communicate with each other if their parking expectations are not being met (e.g." we were assignd a spot close to the edge of the parking lot so our long walk would be more reasonable, but someone else keeps grabbing our spot") I think this communication has been effective, but I am not sure. I am sure our conversations about parking are not over.. 2) The kids in the community are heavily clumped in age. When they hit the range between driving license age & high school graduation in large numbers there may well be a big squeeze on parking spaces. -Jim --- jimsg [at] hotmail.com Jim Snyder-Grant (please excuse mandatory ad appended by my email provider) ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com
