Cohen pushes flexible parking fees
By JACK LAMBERT [email protected]
Outgoing Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen wants his successor to tie street parking prices to demand.
Cohen asked Richard New ell, Annapolis’ director of transportation, to present
seasonal and flexible parking pricing options to the city’s Transportation Board and Transportation Committee.
“You need the political will to do it, and you need the technological capability to do it,” Cohen said.
Flexible fees — known as
market pricing — would raise or lower the city’s $2 parking fee for metered spaces based on demand.
Last summer the city installed 384 parking meters that can accept credit cards. At the time, city spokeswoman Rhonda Wardlaw said this could
lead to market pricing.
Cohen will not have a chance to implement pricing changes, as Mike Pantelides will replace him as mayor next week. Pantelides defeated Cohen in the Nov. 5 general

Benoit, a Crownsville Democrat in his last year on the council, wrote after the 5-2 vote that candidates seeking to replace him or running for county executive should gc on the record about putting cellphone towers at schools.
Voters in Piney Orchard, where the school system is considering a tower, could make the issue a crucial one in the District 4 race.
“Your collective size is a massively powerful voice,” Benoit wrote in the email.
“If Piney Orchard is 60 percent against you, you can’t win.”
Residents in the Odenton neighborhood worked for months to block a a 99-foot cell tower being considered at Piney Orchard Elementary School under a five-year lease between Anne Arundel County schools and Milestone Communication.
School officials project the lease will allow towers at roughly 40 schools and generate about $5 mil lion.
Legislation Benoit submitted, which would have barred towers in most school locations by creating new setback requirements, died on Nov. 18. The only tower so far completed under the lease is at Broadneck High School, where there has been no public outcry.
Three candidates have announced plans to seek the District 4 council seat after Benoit, who is pre-
