A few weeks ago, I had an experience trying to park in Santa Monica and it helped clarify my thinking on the Jordan Ranch proposal. I needed to park at a surgical center, but the parking structure was full. I asked the attendant if I could park along the side of the driveway or on the landing between the levels where I could see space was available. He very politely explained that the structure was built to accommodate only a certain number of cars, that it contained that many cars and that I would have to secure parking elsewhere.
