There are 20,000 parking meters in San Francisco, and now the city is thinking of installing 5,000 in some of the eastern neighborhoods again, a plan that was shot down last January after the community loudly voiced its disapproval. The Transportation Agency plans to hold a series of community meetings to gather feedback, but folks who would be affected by the meters are already voicing their concern. "They hold these meetings, residents rally against the plans, and they still move forward with them," said Mari Eliza, spokesman for Eastern Neighborhoods United Front. "We usually end up getting completely ignored." [SF Examiner/photo via Mark Denton]
