Dear Town Council...If everyone is so upset about students parking in area around the SCHOOL why not suggest to the SRVSD to just build a new 10 or 15 million dollar parking garage. What the hell they build new Gym's...new swimming pool...new power grid..etc. etc. why not a multi-level PARKING GARAGE. I am sure they have the money in their sink fund. Make the neighbor's happy. Maybe the school staff and the administrators would be willing to take a 5% wage cut to help fund the project.
Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo
PS...Don't forget when ever the school has any special events you can charge the parents $3 to $5 for safe convenient parking.

Hey Julia - if you don't live near SRVHS don't poke your nose into our affairs. We are capable of figuring out a solution. Since your post is moronic and off point it is obvious your exposure to any meaningful formal education is VERY limited.

No need to be rude... What we need is more civic involvement, not less.
Given your hubris about "our" ability to solve the problem, what is your solution?
I think Julia is exactly on point. This problem really rests with the SRVUSD. However, the school district lives by different rules - they can pretty much do whatever they want and do not need approval from the Town or its citizens. SRVHS has a track record of eliminating on campus parking - the latest being the new pool and tennis courts. At the same time they are increasing non-school related use of their facilities. This has had a very negative impact on the surrounding neighborhood. I agree with Julia - the solution is a parking structure on school property. Restricting parking around the school just pushes the problem to another set of neighbors. This problem really rests with the SRVUSD, but, without some form of pressure they will continue to ignore the problem.
