Parking permit for a nanny in Berkeley?
Hi Berkeley residents who live in an RPP zone:
Have any of you successfully gotten your nanny a parking permit? If so how?
We live in an RPP zone, and despite multiple attempts of working with the City we still don't have a solution. Right now, she has to move her car every two hours while caring for our 9 month old son and our friend's 7 month old daughter. Fortunately, we're home and can facilitate this, but it will literally not be possible once we're back at work.
Our nanny would need to take a 90 minute one-way transit trip, which we're not willing to ask her to do, if she were to not drive. There is no paid parking structure within a mile of our place, there is no on-site parking. We have exhausted our daily permits (and the City won't sell us more.) We've paid more than $200 in parking fines since November and I'm at my wits end. There's no way we're the first to encounter this issue. I'd really appreciate help if you have suggestions. (Please don't suggest she not drive, she has a young family and spending 3 hours to commute because a City she doesn't live in is barring her from parking legally during a pandemic is lunacy and is not a solution.)
