"Dont Forget Your Parking Permit"

Ramblewood is a small, predominantly middle income African American neighborhood in northeastern Baltimore. It is popular among residents for its affordable housing, good schools and friendly neighbors. The Ramblewood Community Association works very hard to keep that community a nice place to live, and to address concerns of area citizens about such matters as school districting, trash pick up and lawn maintenance.
One of the issues that the RCA has to deal with a while back was that of parking. Most of the single family homes are privately owned and occupied year around. Because these houses tend ot be close together, and because most families today have at least two cars, residents tended to park on the street in front of their homes. This was not a problem until students at nearby Morgan state University also started parking on Ramblewood Streets. This often led to the following scenario: a resident would leave for work early in the morning and then return home in the evening to find that he had no place near his home to part because students have taken up all the on street parking.
The RCA solved this problem by issuing parking permits to residents, and then obtaining permission to have any parked car not bearing a permit towed from neighborhood streets. The students soon got the message.
