To the Editor:

Parking will always be a problem in Boca.

People keep coming here to live, and then there are daytrippers. More cars and more cars.

Not everyone who lives here has a garage or driveway. We depend on street parking.

Gilchrist is the issue right now, but people who are building or renovating homes are landscaping to the street, taking away what used to be space for parking. They move bushes and trees. This is County-owned land and not included in their property.

Gilchrist does not have to have a wide median. Make a third lane for parking on the east side of the median from 3rd to 5th Street, and open 5th St. parking (the Inn Beach Club).
