Upcoming: Residential Parking Permit Forum

The idea of residential parking permits in Brooklyn, which have been discussed from time to time, have gotten a further boost from the congestion pricing debate. There's a forum coming up that is being sponsored by Council Member Letitia and David Yassky. Here's an email we got about it:
What do residential parking permits mean for downtown Brooklyn neighborhoods? How do they work? Find out how RPPs will affect your parking options: Monday, February 4, 2008. Bring your questions!?
The meeting will take place at the St. Francis College Auditorium on Remsen St (Court and Clinton) from 7PM-9PM. It will be hosted by the Residential Parking Permit Steering Committee including "representatives of the downtown Brooklyn neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Cadman Plaza, Carroll Gardens, Clinton Hill, Cobble Hill, Ft Greene and Park Slope."

I think the idea stinks.
Somehow some people think because they live in a neighborhood they own it. And outsiders not appreciated.

Was born/raised in Brooklyn. There is NO PLACE like Brooklyn! Moved to Westchester. Live in Ossining where we must have a parking permit to park on a public road. $35/year. You do NOT want a residential parking permit system! It's merely another form of taxation. One resident owes $57,000 in outstanding parking tickts plus penalties. Ignore a $10 ticket and it increases to $240 in late fees! Another person owes $36,000 in parking tickets. This is a government SCAM to raise money so the politicians can spend it. Paying to park on a public road overnight is legal thievery as far as I'm concerned.
