Overview: Enacting the ordinance will establish “no parking anytime” on several streets in the Burch Kove neighborhood. The neighborhood requested “no parking anytime” because parked cars can block the way for school buses and emergency vehicles in certain locations.

 

Recommendation(s):

That the Council enact the attached ordinance, which establishes no parking anytime on Bella Drive (both sides), Kove Road (north side), and Lena Circle (both sides) in the Burch Kove neighborhood.

 

Key Issues

                     The Town maintains all streets in the Burch Kove neighborhood.

                     Parking is currently permitted on both sides of the streets.

                     To respond to the neighborhood’s request, Town Fire and Police staff met with the residents and recommended “no parking anytime” as presented in the attached ordinance.

 

Fiscal Impact/Resources: Cost for the purchase and installation of the new signs is minimal.
