Residents petitioned the board for more parking. The townhome section was habitually hitting 100 percent parking occupancy overnight. The board heard from moms and dads with small kids recounting parking on Parkgate and Burnell and walking in the dark across Hope Parkway to get home at night.
The board established a parking committee in March of 2017 that studied the issue for six months. The committee validated the complaints of full parking occupancy overnight and observed some homes which appeared to be operating 4-5 vehicles. Some vehicles did not move for weeks at a time. Most residences had 1-2 vehicles, but some had many more. The committee recommended restricting the amount of cars able to be parked overnight to three per home.
