Transcript 4 AUGUST 27, 2004 www.houstonvoice.com HOUSTON VOICE I Houston news Opponents: permit parking threatens Montrose Proponents say plan enhances area; others say it's Infectious' By BINNIE FISHER The idea no doubt sounds good to condo dwellers on inner city streets: Allow only cars that purchase permits to park on the street. While the idea may appeal to those who live in the inner city those who do business there say the plan would be detrimental to commerce and other activities that take place in mixed neighborhoods. Stephen Barth, who lives in the Portland Place Condominiums in the 400 block of Lovett Boulevard, learned recently that those who inhabit the structures across the street were not likely to sign his petition to have parking restricted. Barth said parking isn't as much the issue as the patrons of establishments on Westheimer just to the north, who he said often park on Lovett and are sometimes loud and obnoxious. "It would only be permitted from 6 p.m. in the evening until the morning, and only on our side of the street," he said. But, Barth's argument doesn't set well with those who operate one of the entities across the street, KPFT Radio, 90.1. Ray Hill, host of "The Prison Show" on KPFT, said "What about the radio station7 What about the people who go for French lessons [at the Alliance Francaise on the corner of Lovett and Whitney]? All of these places have frontage on Lovett." Beyond that, Hill said, he fears that permitted parking eventually could affect commerce in Montrose. "Permitted on-street parking is sort of a malignant thing," he said. "Once it starts growing, you can't stop it." Although Barth and his neighbors are talking about restricting parking on only one side of one block. Hill said he fears the idea could at some point impact businesses in the Hyde Park, Pacific Street area where a number of gay bars, restaurants and other businesses are located. "All of those businesses are in danger of the on-street, permitted parking infection." he said. "We could strangle business in Houston if this infection spreads." At KPFT, general manager Duane Bradley said that with only seven off- street parking spaces and one handicapped space, the station finds it difficult to park its staff and corps of 200 or so volunteers, let alone visitors. "I've told the staff to park on the street, so we would be really impacted by something like that," he said. Barth is in the beginning stages of the For Adam and Steve For Anna and Eve Because in the beginning, they only had one choice. OFFICIAL JEWELER OF MISS CAMP AMERICA!

Those who seek permitted parking must first obtain signatures from those who live and work on the street. Public meeting still to come The petition must be filed with the City of Houston along with an application. If the application is accepted, city traffic officials conduct a survey in the area. Area inhabitants are then advised when a public meeting is set on the matter. After hearing concerns of those at the meeting, city planning officials make a recommendation to the City Council, where a decision is made. Barth said he and his fellow condo dwellers are not trying to make life difficult for others who occupy the 400 block of Lovett Boulevard. 'We value the quality and character of the neighborhood," he said. "We're trying to make it as palatable as possible." What Barth said he and others do not value is the trash they said is often left behind by those who park on Lovett on weekend evenings. Still, Ray Hill said he objects to the idea of permitted street parking because in the end, it can only cause trouble for businesses that have called Montrose home longer than most of the condo residents. "It's a block-to-block, hand-to-hand battle," Hill said. "I'm ready to champion this cause." Ray Hill and others who do business on Lovett Boulevard are concerned about a proposal to turn the street into a permitted parking zone. flf f 0RD ABU fllediul Benefits for !UERV0DO ,OCT«- A^Pft*}*-*^ "Potvf^'S^ Call for more details and benefits!
