Residents seek parking changes on Skyview Drive

Residents seek parking changes on Skyview Drive

April 12th, 2012 in News

Residents on and near Skyview Drive expressed safety concerns Wednesday about the road, hoping to have some on-street parking removed.

About eight residents attended the Transportation and Traffic Commission meeting to voice their concerns about having parking on both sides of the street, where there are three curves on the road and a hill that blocks the line of sight when driving. The commission also received more than 35 written requests to address the parking issue on Skyview Drive.

Britt Smith, operations division director, said staff did not recommend a parking change on the street, as it is 36 feet wide and the city ordinance states a street needs a minimum width of 34 feet to have parking on both sides.
