Street Signs and Parking Changes:
After careful planning and coordinating with the City, additional stop signs and no parking assignments will be added this week. Locater crews from the City have marked areas where signs will be installed between Tuesday, September 19th and Friday, September 22nd. Please be mindful of these changes as some streets traffic patterns will change where sides of the street previously thought to be "parking" sides will now be no parking. You can reference the changes below or note the white stakes that have been installed today.
Change 1 - McCleary Lane:
For McCleary Ln, no parking signs be posted on the side of the street that single family homes as shown in RED.
Change 2 - Ball Street:
For Ball St and Canton St, no parking signs be posted on the side of the street with the fire hydrants as shown in RED.
Change 3 - Foster Road:
For Foster Rd, no parking signs be posted on the side of the street heading to the dog park as shown in RED.
Change 4 - Foster Road corner:
For the corner of Foster Rd and Willenbrock Cir, no parking signs be posted on the corner as shown in RED. There are two sidewalks close to that corner were parking between them and on the corner creates a blind spot and makes it difficult to see pedestrians.
Change 5 - Foster Road corner:
For the corner of Foster Rd, no parking signs be posted on the corner as shown in RED. There are two sidewalks close to that corner where people are parking between them and on the corner creating a blind spot and its makes it hard to see pedestrians and oncoming traffic. There has been two accidents in the fast few months and limiting no parking in 2 or 3 vehicle spots on that corner will greatly help reduce the risk.
Change 6 - Foster Road corner:
For Willenbrock Cir, from the commercial building to the end of Willenbrock Cir no parking signs be posted on the corner as shown in RED. The mailbox area is the main area people are parking blocking the street.
Change 7 - Foster Road curve:
For the corner of Foster Rd, no parking signs be posted on the corner as shown in RED as you enter the neighborhood. Part of this corner is already no parking due to the bus stop and we have seen time and time again vehicles parking right up to the bus stop sign. The two red lines on the right picture are the two traffic calming speed humps. Due to them we don’t see moving the parking to the other side of the street will change the calming of the traffic and will only give neighbors more street parking area and make things easier on the City Bus.
Change 8 - Corner No Parking:
Some of the corners though out the neighborhood we have seen people parking right up to the corns blocking the sidewalks or even between the sidewalk and the corner. Adding a sign at some of the corners stating do not park between sign and corner.
