"'Don’t fuck it up,.' I'll say because I’m still incapable of expressing my feelings and then I’ll tie a bunch of balloons to my house and float to South America." Absolutely hilarious. Hunter would've smiled and mumbled at that one.

Great piece and hope your dream comes true cause it will change our city to be better.

You make a good case for loosening parking requirements, but you end with:

"If we want Worcester to be a real city (it is not), we need to get rid of parking requirements now."

I never wanted to live in a "real city".

Maybe, instead of requiring a certain number of parking spaces for a development, we can require developers to make payments to the WRTA?
