Overview: Staff provided a report to the Town Council at their November 13, 2019 Council meeting regarding on-street parking concerns in the Burch Kove neighborhood. The Burch Kove neighborhoodis located at the corner of Seawell School Road and Homestead Road. The attached ordinance provides for limited on-street parking, incorporating Council feedback provided at the meeting. The revised ordinance allows approximately 20 on-street parking spaces on several streets in the neighborhood.

That the Council enact the proposed ordinance for "no parking anytime" on several streets in the Burch Kove neighborhood.

Key Issues
The proposed ordinance:
* Provides limited on-street parking in the Burch Kove neighborhood.
* Creates/Improves safe passage for other vehicles including emergency apparatus, school buses and delivery trucks.
* Is intended to be an interim step to give Town staff, community members and the homeowners' association time to planning a sustainable long-term solution.
* Does not provide for resident-only parking; however, if non-resident parking becomes a problem, the ordinance can be amended later by Council.

The Town staff will monitor the parking and traffic in the neighborhood and will provide recommendations for near-term changes if conditions warrant. In the meantime, staff will continue to work with the homeowner's association to develop a long-term solution to propose to the Council in the future.

Fiscal Impact/Resources: Signs will be installed by the Town sign staff, and the cost will be covered from the existing operating funds of the Traffic Engineering Division.
