The Engineering, Police and Public Works department are looking for feedback on the City’s street parking ordinance, as it’s been many years since it’s been revaluated. Per Chapter 26 of the City Code, no person shall park a vehicle for more than six consecutive hours on a street unless in areas designated by signs or if such persons are actively engaged in performing services. It also states from Nov. 1 to March 31, no person shall park on any street from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.
Other than the seasonal parking restrictions, did you know there was a six-hour parking limit on City streets?
Should the City consider changing the six-hour time limit to a shorter limit, a longer limit or no limit at all and why?
Students and participants in Parks & Recreation events sometimes use all the available parking spots in an area, so residents are unable to use them. Should there be specific parking restrictions around schools and parks? (i.e., No Parking 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday – Friday.) Keep in mind, residents would also not be able to park on the streets in the specified areas during those dates and times either.
What are your biggest concerns with parking on City streets? Any suggestions to improve them?
