New Hollywood Beach Parking Rates Go Into Effect on Monday May 1st; #HollywoodBeachFL, #BrowardCounty

Coming next week: My fact-filled blog post titled with the latest about Hollywood Beach parking and the quest for new parking garages or a better way of managing the number of cars on the beach - "#HollywoodBeachFL Quality of Life vs. Economics: New solutions for an old problem - public parking. Finding just the right balance between the goals of tweaking the city's economic engine -tourism- to give tourists a positive experience and keep them coming back, and Hollywood Beach residents' desire to maintain their Quality of Life."

Recent press release issued by the City of Hollywood,

New Beach Parking Rates Go Into Effect May 1st
Register Now to Get the Resident Rate

To keep beach parking affordable for Hollywood residents, the City is offering a resident parking rate. Residents must register their vehicle(s) annually with the Parking Division to enjoy an hourly parking rate of $1.50 per hour Monday through Thursday and $2.00 per hour Friday through Sunday and on holidays. This rate is 50% less than the new non-resident rate of $3.00 per hour Monday through Thursday and $4.00 per hour Friday through Sunday and on holidays. The new non-resident parking rates will go into effect May 1, 2017.

Once registered, you will be given a “resident rate code” for use at City-operated multi-space master meter parking spots. Registration is free and can be done in-person or online.  The following documents are required to register:
Driver’s license
Vehicle registration
One of the following: lease agreement, utility bill, voter ID card or tax bill with current Hollywood address
To Register online: Upload scanned images or photos of the required documents to the Parking Portal and select “Get Permits.”

To Register in-person: Bring copies of the required documents to the Parking office located at 2600 Hollywood Boulevard in the City Hall West Annex Building.

Using the Parkmobile Application
Once you have your resident rate code, you will need to register your vehicle with Parkmobile to receive the resident parkingrate. You can sign up for Parkmobile by visiting http://us.parkmobile.com/ or by calling the toll-free number 877.727.5714. You must register with the City of Hollywood in order to receive the resident rate through Parkmobile.

If you are already a Parkmobile user, you still will need to register your vehicle(s) with the City to automatically receive the City of Hollywood resident rate when you use the Parkmobile App. Be sure to use the same phone number when you register.

Additional Information
Please allow up to 24 hours/next business day for resident rate processing and up to 20 days for Parkmobile processing.
At single-space parking meters, the resident rate can only be applied when using the Parkmobile Application.
Resident rate code is not valid in private garages, lots or meters

Don’t wait to get your resident rate code!  Log on today or stop by the Parking Office. Parking on Hollywood beach.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Sept. 1962. #MLK I was a young kid living in #Memphis with my family that April night in 1968 when we returned home from a trip to #McDonalds and like so many nights before, I raced to the TV set in the living room to beat my two younger sisters to be the one who turned on the TV. As my parents walked in and settled down on the family couch, to see what was on TV, literally, within one minute, came the Breaking News that Dr. King had been shot elsewhere in the city. And the news only got worse as the night went on as news soon confirmed that Dr. King had died as a result of the assassination attempt, and soon there was widespread looting and violence in Memphis, the very things he had adamantly opposed. Eventually came the news that the city was under curfew, and sometime before midnight, because my family lived in a new-ish apt. complex that was on the same road as the nearby Armory, my parents and I and many of our neighbors watched in silence from the sidewalk/curb as tanks driven by members of the mobilized National Guard drove towards downtown Memphis, because the city's powers-that-be had decided that this would show the people who was boss. As my mother tells the story, one of my neighbors remarked on the irony of U.S. Army tanks being used to try to stop violence by Americans who were upset about the murder of a great man who had won the #NobelPeacePrize. It was the first time I remember ever hearing this strange word: #irony.

When you leave but bring the spare key because it is yours to keep.

2 0 1 7. I made new mistakes and old ones again. I learned things I didn't know and I things I had already learned the hard way but needed to repeat either way. I fell in love again and again, with the same man, and realized that is the way to do it. I stopped thinking life happened to me and started enjoying taking control of what tomorrow would entail. I wrote even when it hurt and I apologized even when they didn't. I almost gave up but woke up and stood up and spoke up and didn't budge and moved on and forgave myself for not always knowing what to do. I decided the most important thing is to be proud of who I become and to make sure she is someone to be proud of. All I truly have is the opportunity to be whoever I want to be, and knowing that is everything.
