We went through this 10 or 15 years ago regarding school bus parking on the bluff when kids were going down to the tide pools for classes or beach days, and there is or was a parking law enacted to stop it. Am I the only person in this town with a memory? Buses are not supposed to park on Ocean, They are supposed to park on the side streets, not that 200 block residents want school buses and 50 kids unloading in "their" front yard either. But if the people on Ocean don't like it, what's wrong with their teams of lawyers getting on the city about it and coming up with a solution that doesn't push it onto other residents? And why should non-profits pay less? The city can fill the parking spaces at full price so why should we take a hit because the XYZ Summer Camp group wants free parking when they are using our lifeguards for free to babysit the kids already? They can build parking fees into their program prices or bus rental costs. Not our problem.

How about, at least, enforcing the 'No Parking' restriction with tickets?
