City plan could worsen Waikiki parking


    Waikiki resident Cherise Musselman and granddaughter Raleigh Musselman, 5, got out of their car Wednesday just after finding parking on Launiu Street in Waikiki. Cherise Musselman said her family has racked up more than $700 in parking tickets and towing costs in just a year because of the limited public parking available in the district. The nearby orange cone placed over a pipe denotes that the space will be converted into a metered stall in the near future.


    Parking is so tight on Launiu Street and elsewhere in Waikiki that Cherise Musselman once waited for two hours in her car to find street parking. She and her daughter, Brianna Musselman, are constantly scrambling because their condo is one of many in the tourist district that did not come with parking. They found a monthly rate of $95 for parking at Fort DeRussy for one car but have not found an affordable space for another.
