Seattle has changed the rules on new construction as reported on crosscut.com. You may have no place to park if you rent a new apartment in Seattle. The intent is to drive people to living entirely by mass transit. I’m just trying to imagine how I would fit that into my lifestyle… I’m not permitted to take my dog on the bus; I can’t carry my daughter’s cello, music stand, and backpack on the bus; I can’t get to the Skykomish River with my kayak to go whitewater kayaking. In fact, there are many things I couldn’t do if I had to depend on mass transit.
I understand the need to reduce what we consume to make room for more people, but there must be a better way. If Steve Jobs were here, he would say “Go back and come up with a better solution or I’ll fire you and find someone who can.”
