City Hall is anti-car

In “Building a case for Divisadero housing” (May 23), it is mentioned that the proposed project would have 186 new units, but it neglected to mention that there will be parking provided for only 57 cars. 

The Haight is already negatively impacted by a lack of parking spaces and people are paying over $300 to find an empty space in a neighbor’s garage. In the past street parking was also limited with new bicycle lanes and two-hour parking limits during the day. 

I understand that promoting bicycle use and the use of public transportation is the direction that the city wants to promote, but I think that there needs to be a recognition that many people own cars and drive in the city. Their interests are being ignored.
