Re: Zoo traffic
There is no way a community is going to force the Zoo to build a parking garage. Maybe they can put in for an additional appropriation from the federal government to pay for it? The zoo cut the garage out of their plans purely for budgetary reasons.

It would make sense if we, as a beleaguered community, would finally require the Smithsonian to solve its own parking problems and not put it on the neighborhood streets to absorb their parking. How about Lawn signs: BUILD ZOO PARKING GARAGE! Let's do a little parking shaming. Nothing in life is free, especially in the big city. [snip]
