Piedmont Parking District Established for Linda-Kingston-Lake-Rose Upsets Oakland Neighbors

At the City Council meeting of January 16, 2018, numbers of very upset Oakland residents spoke to the Piedmont City Council regarding the dangerous and damaging changes to their quality of life as parking spaces next to their apartment buildings had been preempted for use by Piedmont residents.

The speakers addressed the City Council under the Public Forum agenda item preventing the Council from commenting other than to refer the crowd to City Administrator Paul Benoit and Public Works Director Chester Nakahara for further information.

Press announcement is below:
