Village Parking Is A Matter of Courtesy
Back in the day when the Village was first planned, no one anticipated that the automobile would have such importance to the function of the family across America. The result in older communities such as Golf Manor, is an environment with narrow streets with limited parking for households with multiple drivers and multiple vehicles that need a place to park.
Our ability to provide more parking is pretty much maxed-out, which makes it even more important that residents work cooperatively with each other and are courteous toward their neighbors when observing parking rules.
Village ordinances provide some control over the parking situation throughout the Village. These laws are required to provide access to parking on each street. For example, no vehicle is permitted to be parked on the road for more than seventy-two (72) consecutive hours (351.05 Maximum Consecutive Street Parking). In addition, parking is prohibited on curbs that have been painted yellow, in front of driveways, across the sidewalk, street lawns or over curbs (351.03 Prohibited Parking). Also prohibited is displaying a vehicle for sale or making repairs on a vehicle upon any public roadway.
Most homes in the Village have driveways, as well as many of the multi-family homes and apartment buildings with parking lots. Our best advice is to use the parking space on your own property. Residents should always fill the parking space on their own property first as a matter of courtesy to neighbors before parking on the street or parking vehicles in front of someone else’s home.
It’s important that everyone work together to provide solutions making Golf Manor a more enjoyable place to live.
