Chalk up a big win for GUARDIAN reader Hillary Haymond.
Team Dave’s parking czar John Eichmann today announced a massive downtown parking plan for two wheelers–in response to CITIZEN REQUESTS spearheaded by Ms. Haymond and GUARDIAN readers.

In a press release Eichmann said, “ As a result of last year’s citizen requests to city hall for increased consideration of two-wheeler parking needs, the City of Boise has identified 15 locations which are exclusively reserved for motorcycle parking. Each location has multiple spaces.
These parking spots are offered at no charge to motorcyclists and scooter operators, and are marked with signs indicating one hour of free parking. As with any other time zone, however, vehicles must not exceed the limit, or their owners will face a $15 fine.
The special locations were created throughout downtown, extending roughly from 4th Street to 12th Street between Washington and Grove Streets. Motorcyclists should back their vehicles in and park perpendicular to the curb.”
First the Depot and now this response to GUARDIAN readers! Are we to believe someone downtown is listening? Good job Hillary and Team Dave. Election years are sure fun!
