Seattle in need of street parking

Mayor McGinn should add not decrease parking Mayor Mike McGinn’s support of reducing street parking and reducing the requirement for new parking developments is making Seattle less livable.

Meter cheaters are busted,” page one, June 21] to discourage even more people from entering the city in cars by adding yet more obstacles to convenient parking.

Tourists and Seattle parking

Unfriendly parking system, unhappy visitors On a recent visit from Maine, I stopped to have a quick look at the Sculpture Garden.
