Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Seattle creates priority parking privileges for musicians un/loading equipment

Seattle has a Music Commission and a master plan to promote musicians and the music industry. 

So it makes sense that the city is testing modified loading zone parking restrictions to accommodate musicians, in loading zones adjacent to clubs.  See "City of Seattle creates priority parking for musicians" from MyNorthwest and thanks to NotionsCapital for the tip.

-- Seattle Music Commission, includes link to master plan

It's a good example of something I need to include in my proposed Parking Policy and Practice Toolbox (see list of innovative practices within this entry).

However, the time limits need to be longer than 15 minutes.  It is impressive that the hours of restriction, 4 PM to 7 AM, are set to accommodate musicians, before, during and after their set, when they need to load/unload their equipment.
