Why is There Nowhere to Park in Silver Lake?

Community members of the Silver Lake Neighborhood in Los Angeles have recently been complaining about a parking issue in the area. They claim that parking is scarce, especially in residential areas, and have asked the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council to resolve the issue, perhaps with a public parking structure. Additionally, the neighborhood has a reputation of having a parking issue, and visitors perceive this scarcity as a problematic as well. Numerous parties have been blamed, such as businesses not providing enough parking, or even residents. The client believes that residents are using the infrastructure inefficiently (I.E. using supplied parking with their units as storage or converting the space into an extra room) and causing a spillover of parking onto the streets. As a result, the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council has initiated this study, conducted by a UCLA graduate student in the Masters in Urban and Regional Program, to determine the extent of these claims and recommend solutions.
