Chief Jeff Smith attended our last meeting to discuss parking on the streets.
There continues to be a problem of vehicles parked on our narrow streets. Chief Jeff Smith agreed that this was a real safety issue, especially in the event of an emergency vehicle ability to travel to a resident in need of help. There is also the issue of visibility when there are walkers where a parked vehicle may prohibit visibility of a car traveling down the street.
There are currently “No Parking” signs on our streets to inform residents that there isno parking. Any sign that you see on a street means thewhole street is a no parking zone and not just where there is a sign.
Because there is a lot of construction in Charbonneau the fact that sometimes a construction vehicle will park on the street was discussed. This should be for unloading or loading only, and for as short a time as possible.
If you see any vehicle parked where it should not be:
- Neighbor to Neighbor have a conversation
- Call Emergency Dispatch 503-655-8211, and inform the police of the illegal parking so that they can ticket or remove the vehicle
- Call Steve Chinn 503-312-0927
