The May 18-24, 2011 issue of Real Change newspaper provides coverage on the upcoming expiration of RPZ (restricted parking zone) permits, originally issued two years ago with the opening of the light rail line.

Starting September 1, residents will need to pay $65 per car or $30 for a guest pass to part on streets in the RPZ.

Here’s the full article, including comments by Rainier Beach Steward Council member, Justina Guyott.

RPZ permit holders can share their opinions directly with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) through this online survey.

The next meeting of the Rainier Beach Stewardship Council is Wednesday, May 25, 6:30 p.m., in Room 111, Rainier Beach High School (8815 Seward Park Ave. S.).
