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.


Recommendation(s):
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.
