No-parking zone on Wisconsin denied

July 18, 2007

Commissioners unanimously denied a request to establish a no-parking zone on the east side of Wisconsin Street between Sixth and Seventh streets.

A resident of the neighborhood had asked for the no-parking zone after cars from the recently opened nearby Custom Highline auto dealership were parked on both sides of the street.

Commissioners denied the request, however, because no one from the neighborhood went to the Traffic Safety Commission or City Commission meetings to lobby for the change.

Zarif Haque, owner of Custom Highline, sent a letter to commissioners asking them to deny the request. He said he was willing to work with the neighbor to see whether another solution could be found.

The dealer needs to keep his cars on his lot as other car dealers do. That is his responsibility. He should know this and there made be an ordinance to that effect.

What does that mean? Kiss up, buy them presents, take them to dinner? I did not know there was a rule that you had to "lobby" in order to get a reasonable request approved, and that failure to lobby could be the sole reason for denying a request.
