The headline reads "Ban on car dwelling loses support in Palo Alto" -- raises some questions for me. Does this mean that anyone who wants to live in their car/rv can park in front of my house and the city will do nothing to prevent this? Are you kidding?
The headline makes is sound like the majority of Palo Altans feel strongly that people living in their cars can park in front of our houses, but when you read closely -- it was only three city council committee members who feel this way. Really, they should offer their street parking in front of their houses to see how well this works out.
The article calls this a "deeply divisive proposal" but also mentions that all our surrounding cities have such a ban. How could it be so deeply divisive here but not in Menlo Park or Mountain View, etc.? Sounds more like a few people have an agenda and are pushing it through by trying to make Palo Altans feel guilty if they object to someone living in their car in front of their residence.
Figuring out some alternative area where car dwellers can park is OK. But it is not ok that someone can just start living right in front of your residence.
