Want a parking spot? Call this guy.
If you live in a townhouse, have a car, and don’t have as many parking spots as you’d like, you can get help from an unlikely source—Advisory Neighborhood Commission member Ron Lewis. If you e-mail him and suggest that parking spots with restricted parking have those restrictions lifted, he’ll do what he can as part of his “Parking Lot Treasure Hunt” initiative. With luck, the restrictions will be lifted and you will have opened up another spot in Georgetown.
Even if you can park in front of your townhouse, opening another spot on your street will make your life easier because other cars won’t take your space. With that in mind, you might as well suggest a bunch of spaces, especially considering that Lewis’s other campaign is extending the new party regulations off-campus. Isn’t this a more constructive use of his time?
