West U Seeing Results from Parking Etiquette Program
The City of West U is already seeing results from its parking etiquette program.
Since the start of the program in early October, 86 notices have been issued by city staff with the majority of them being courtesy notices. One parking citation has been issued as of today.
The city has also received positive feedback from residents about the program and city officials have said it appears to be having a positive effect on parking on the streets.
Council directed staff in July to implement the program in an effort to improve current parking practices. The city hopes to create change through a friendlier approach to parking enforcement.
Residents are asked to:
• Whenever possible, park cars in the garage or driveway without blocking the sidewalk.
• When parking on the street, allow maximum clear passage in the travel lane.
• When parking on the street, try to avoid parking in front of another property.
• When parking on the street, look across the street to see if a neighbor’s driveway is blocked.
• When placing curbside landscaping, consider motorists’ or neighbors’ visibility.
