I'm going to drive downtown from my home in a residential zone and park in a city lot—is that cool?

If walking poses issues for you and you require a vehicle to get around, by all means we encourage you to drive. If not, keep in mind that most homes in your district are just 1-2 blocks from downtown—an easy five- or ten-minute walk or bike ride. Or in other terms, roughly the same amount of time it takes most people to walk through a mall parking lot on a busy day. If you’re able to get there on foot, be cool and save a downtown parking space for someone who needs it.
