Permit Parking In Your Hood: Yay or Nay?

Permit Parking In Your Hood: Yay or Nay?

While walking back home this evening from the laundromat (my poor feline is recovering from a urinary tract infection and left a little urine on the blanket), I spied this lengthy, humorous and sarcastic diatribe against the recent influx of new "Silverlakians" (is that Armenian?) I thought I'd share.

The acidic note is a reaction to the threat of implementing permit parking in our neighborhood. Many parts of Los Angeles are now requiring permit only parking in residential neighborhoods. In a city where 60% of us rent, almost everyone drives, but many of us do not have garage parking, this is becoming a hotly debated discussion happening throughout LA. Especially true with urban renewal happening in neighborhoods that were once considered "non-desirable". What's your take on this? Take our poll under the jump...

Me? I plan to just keep walking when I can and maybe get a bike. No permits needed for either...yet.
