You have never been to Annapolis if you haven't bitched about
the parking. Maybe it was the lack of it. Maybe it was the $40
ticket you got for overstaying your welcome. Today, we speak with
Alex Pline, a member of the City's Transportation Board who peels
back the onion a little bit for us.
The City's new parking overlords highly respected parking partner, SP+, has come out with some new recommendations that have both irked and pleased the residents--and generally pissed off the businesses. There will be a formal meeting to discuss this and the public is invited--- Tuesday, march 28th at 7pm at City Hall. But Alex tackles some of the issues here.
After a beer or two, we come back to discuss his other passion--bicycling. What does the City, County and State need to do to make bicycling safer? What do drivers need to do? What do bicyclists need to do? And what happened to the Annapolis Bicycle Plan anyway? And for those wondering--yes, he did ride his bike to and from our session!
