Parking Meters On Revere Beach

How do we feel about this? At first it seemed like they were only being installed on the beach side, but as far as I know they are being installed on both sides all the way through point of pines. Would be very ****** to have to pay to park in front of your house.

 

If the DCR uses the funds appropriately, maybe there is a case for it - Hard to believe though given that they slid this one in during covid. None of the money goes to the city or the MBTA (would make sense in that case given the decline in ridership).

 

It seems to me that there might be better ways to raise money than taxing the poor.

Come on, it's Massachusetts.   You know the revenue will be used for the public good.

I can’t imagine that the mayor is happy about this. Revere beach has so much potential. Remove all barriers to entry so people can come and spend money at the local businesses.

 

There is an astounding lack of commerce here. No stores, relatively few restaurants, no food carts allowed (DCR). Just a bunch of new apartment developments which are mostly single use.

DCR is also proposing meters for state properties on Cambridge Parkway, Memorial Drive, Charlesgate East, Park Drive and the Fenway.

The DCR is an omnipotent borderline rouge agency that answers to no one. They have far too much authority, and have their fingers in too many pies.

Won't happen unless the ACOE sells out to the DCR. This is why I always say we should thank our lucky stars the canal and the BSP are not run by the DCR cartel.

State is now saying that no revere residents will be charged for parking. 


That’s only fair.  
 

But Kelly’s Roast Beef can’t be too happy about this. Wonder if they can cut a deal and have 3-4 parking spots out front deemed “meter free” for Kelly’s customers.

Totally unfair, why should some "residents" that probably live in section 8 housing, on welfare park for free and some guy takes a day off from work to take is family to the beach have to pay???

One pays, all pay............
