Mention valet parking in Little Italy to Justin Duvall, and he'll rattle off stories of valet drivers clogging traffic, parking cars in residential spots and blocking off public spaces with cones. "I've moved cones before," said Duvall, 29, a lifelong resident of the neighborhood. "If it's not their spot, if the street signs don't say 'No parking,' it's fair game. " In Little Italy, Fells Point and other city neighborhoods where restaurants and clubs commingle with houses and apartments, complaints about valet parking companies have grown common.

As an unprecedented wave of development gets under way in Towson, a close examination is necessary of the transportation infrastructure that must be in place to accommodate the boom in residents and visitors. The formation of a committee by 5th District Councilman David Marks to study a bus circulator is an important step in that direction. The clock is ticking. The window of opportunity is closing for putting buses to work before the congestion hits. The cluster of bars, restaurants, movie screens and a nightclub in the center of Towson will constitute one of Baltimore County's major entertainment hubs, and this surge in density will inevitably make parking a deterrent for some and ultimately a problem that must be solved.

On Saturday,  Feb. 1, my wife and I took our son to dinner to the Towson Tavern at York Road and Shealy Avenue to celebrate his birthday. When we pulled up in front of the restaurant to park at one of the metered spots right in front, the restaurant had red, no-parking bags covering all parking places on Shealy. This meant we had to go with the restaurant's valet parking. When we left the restaurant, we tipped the valet but were surprised when we saw that all he had to do was give us our keys, as our car was parked at one of the red bag spots right in front of the restaurant.

The city's zoning board on Tuesday denied an appeal by a Federal Hill group to create an open-air beer garden across from the Cross Street Market. Board members voted 3-2 to grant conditional approval to the courtyard beer garden in the first block of Cross Street, but the appeal needed a four-vote majority to pass. Board Chairman Geoffrey Washington, who voted for the appeal, proposed several conditions. The bar would have to operate as a restaurant, selling more food than beer.

As the county school system seeks bids to transform its parking lot near City Dock in Annapolis into a for-profit venture, city officials say zoning prohibits such a plan without a city-county partnership. School officials have made a formal request for proposals for private management of its 70-space lot off Commerce Street. The deadline for bids is Tuesday. "We're looking at this as a possible revenue source," said Robert C. Leib, the school system's director of business and government services.
