Parklets and parking

Letter to the editor in today's SF Chronicle:

Regarding “Public concern over private use of S.F. parklets” (Front Page, Feb. 24): I am surprised that your article on S.F. parklets fails to mention the loss of metered parking spots as a result of the parklets. 

For those of us unable to ride bikes or unwilling to Uber/Lyft everywhere, enjoying neighborhoods for dining and shopping is more challenging when fewer metered spots are available.

Between yellow meters, loading zones, green zones, handicapped spots and now parklets, there’s not much left for the rest of us.

Rob's comment:
Yes, every parklet eliminates two or three parking spots, which is only one aspect of City Hall's anti-car policies.
