Greater Greater Washington’s Michael Perkins has an interesting thesis. He says that instead of shutting down at 6:00 p.m., parking meters in Arlington should run after dark in neighborhoods like Clarendon, Crystal City and Rosslyn.
Perkins says such a move would free up more street parking in Arlington’s business districts at night. It would also encourage more people to take transit, he says.
Changing the hours would require the county board to change the code.
