Parking Reform News

Hello and welcome to this week’s Parking Reform News! This is the first week in quite a while where I have not had the luxury of an editor. Many thanks to Angel York for her work as a Communications Intern since the beginning of the year. If you know someone with strong editing and/or social media skills who would like to help us further our mission either as an intern or volunteer, send them the internship description. Until then, expect more errors and less maps. My apologies in advance.
