Here's the new info: We must get 50% of residents on both sides of the street (Louise) to sign the petition in order to get it considered. Maritza, who has done all of the real work on this so far, has already gotten a flat turndown from one homeowner on the west side of Louise. He doesn't want to lose his parking privilege, no matter what. This is certainly a defensable position, but we all have to be willing to give something up in order to get something better.
Once again, if there is to be no compromise, this is a total waste of time for all concerned, so please think about this carefully. This blog is a great place to vent and raise questions, which hardly anyone is doing. Please participte; this is how changes get made.
