On Tuesday, City traffic engineer Mark Rogers will appear at the monthly meeting of the Community Planners Committee, comprised of planning representatives from around the City, to discuss a proposal that excuses "certain" veterans from having to feed parking meters.

The proposal has been floated around before. In August 2008, Rogers presented the idea to the City's Parking Advisory Board. At that meeting, the committee discussed allowing vehicles that display Pearl Harbor Survivor Plates, Legion of Valor Plates, Former American Prisoner of War Plates, Congressional Medal of Honor and Purple Heart Plates, to park for free.

No additional information on the current proposal was made available and city staff has not responded to a request for more information.

In a comment on Twitter, Joe LaCava, community planner in La Jolla, said the proposal was rejected by the Parking Advisory Board at their February 16 meeting.
