Another section of South Side is moving closer to having the Residential Permit Parking Program put into effect.
Residents in the area from S. 22nd to S. 29th on the southern side of East Carson Street have made it through the first steps required to participate in the program. They circulated petitions to gage interest and the city surveyed the area to verify the program was needed in that part of the neighborhood.
The next step is for residents within the area to participate in a Parking Enforcement Management Plan meeting to determine district boundaries, enforcement days, enforcement hours and how long the grace period will be. The longest a grace period can be is two hours, according to city code.
The Parking Enforcement Management Plan meeting will take place on Thursday, June 26, 6:30 p.m. at the Emmaus Center, former St. Peter Church, 2810 Carey Way. Those attending should enter through the doors off of S. 28th Street.
The City Planning Commission public hearing on the new Residential Permit Parking Program area is scheduled for Tuesday, July 22, 2 p.m. at 200 Ross Street in the first floor conference room.
