City sold twice as many Fan Parking Permits as there are parking spaces

A great look at parking in the Fan by Rachel DePompa: – Richmond, VA News, Weather, Traffic

We measured several of the Fan’s streets and even counted up the number of available parking spaces. For example, on the 1100 block of West Avenue there are 54 parking spaces, but in 2011 the City sold 141 parking permits and guest permits. That’s nearly triple the number of empty spaces.

Just three blocks over on 1100 Grove Avenue there are only 22 spaces, but the City sold four times as many parking permits. It issued 106 permits and guest passes in all.
