We understand many of our residents are really feeling the parking crunch. Arriving home after 6pm could lead to circling the block countless times in search of a parking spot. We hope to alleviate some of the parking burden by creating another parking district within SOSNA’s boundaries.
Now, SOSNA is within District 1. This district spans from Market Street to Washington Avenue, and Broad Street to the Schuylkill River. In comparison, the area equal in size to zone 1 on the east side of Broad Street (Market to Washington, the Delaware River to Broad Street), is comprised of four parking districts.
We believe creating another parking district will reduce the number of non-residents parking in the neighborhood and create more spaces for our members. In 2012, a graduate student intern did a parking study and took an inventory of all of the parking spots within our neighborhood.
