John Youkhana, Director of Parking and Mobility Services
Signs tested as replacement to regulatory signageSurvey at oak-park.us/signsurveyRejected

People complained signs weren't readable from afar

Nikki's note: This is fair criticism. The signs were designed for when you're standing in front of it. Also, signs in Oak Park are likely not as confusing in those in LA

"It wasn’t so much a program as it was an on-a-whim pilot. I was managing the parking relating to city hall so when someone suggested having a pickup drop off time I figured it made sense to add some clarity. Still interest at the city but no plans to expand as I understand it
