Came in to the office today to find the first A Permit signs in the parking lot I usually park in. It's been a topic around here for a while about when that lot will get noticed and will suddenly require an A permit. Looks like it's going to happen just in time for the new parking permit year. So, if I want to park anywhere vaguely near my office, or really, have a shot at a parking space at all (C permits are frequently referred to as a "hunting license"), it looks like that will change my parking permit price from $216 a year to $552 a year, more than doubling the cost. Ouch. On the bright side, I may not be here to pay it.
