Resident parking sign in Moss Hill

Thanks for the article on this subject [Permit Parking Comes to Moss Hill]. I am a resident here, too. I oppose the restriction on street parking. There was no street parking problem of any sort here before the signs went up and I don't see why restrictive and exclusive legislation was suddenly imposed.

It seemed like one day someone was walking around with a petition, which my husband and I declined to sign, and within a few weeks the signs went up. Resident-permit only signs are completely unnecessary here. They are an unwelcoming and uncivic intrusion on the neighborhood. I would like to see proof of support for this measure by the required 51 percent of residents. What a shame to find a gated-neighborhood mentality imposed on our area.
