Pollution and Parking

A high tech model to determine how Sinclair and Dyes Inlets get polluted could help get those waterways cleaner. Read Chris Dunagan’s story, Pollution Study Nears Completion.

So you’re looking to park downtown but you’re not sure you can limit your visit to two hours. Mercy once was part of the deal, which was unusual, but I was happy to accept it. Once every 30 days you could get away with parking over the time allowed.
Not anymore.


We got this story because one of my co-workers got one of the pink fliers. I can assure you I’ll be more cautious about parking out front of our building. I’ll probably do it less, which is one of the benefits to the city of holding the line on the regulations. Parking is a problem in Poulsbo and Bainbridge, in part because people figure out how or whether the law is being enforced. On Bainbridge the issue is ferry commuters and employees parking in spots reserved for shoppers. Since there was such lax enforcement there was a lot of non-compliance. The city has tried to step that up.
In Poulsbo there is supposed to be a two-hour limit in the main lot downtown, but I never heard of anyone getting ticketed.
In Bremerton, the city does ticket. I’ll gladly walk the extra couple blocks to avoid the $25 fine.
