Killing mother nature for more Hoboken parking robots!

It’s becoming so painfully obvious that you can’t even walk a block anymore without money vanishing from your purse strings. And to top it all off – after all this “revenue” (thievery) gets funneled into city coffers, we have more roads than ever that are worse that rocky hiking paths. What the F are they doing?

Are they making it easier or harder for small businesses to survive?

Do you know what streets are getting meters? How many residential spots is it going to take away?

That is 5th and Adams. I drive up that street every day to drop kids at school but can’t picture anything in that block commercial or why the city would need parking meters in a residential zone. I call BS until I hear something different on this. Not cool. [quote comment=”224138″]Do you know what streets are getting meters? How many residential spots is it going to take away?[/quote]

The provision is the tree grant the city received needs to be looked at. Why would the state be funding more trees to tree killers?
