Complaints prompt Signature Drive changes
Sunday, March 19, 2017
Complaints about noise, trash, break-ins and traffic have prompted the Greenville Police Department to bar all motorists from parking on the entire length of Signature Drive near the Bellamy apartments and the Kittrell Farms town homes.
The new policy will go into effect on Monday from Charles Boulevard to the road’s dead end near Hillard Lane. The department’s Parking Enforcement Unit has received numerous complaints from residents in the area, a news release said.
Complaints stemming from vehicles that park on the roadside include vehicles impeding traffic, properties being riddled with trash and debris, an increase in vehicle break-ins, nuisance noises throughout the day and evening hours, and pedestrian hazards, the release said.
Permanent “No Parking Zone” signs were placed on the street Friday, and informational flyers will be distributed throughout the neighborhood by parking enforcement staff to help provide educational material to the residents and motoring public, the release said.
A two-week educational period will take place Monday through March 31, followed by a warning period through mid-April. Enforcement will officially begin on April 17. For the first two weeks, parking citations will be issued, the release said. After that time, violators will be towed.
Residents within the affected area can contact Parking Enforcement with questions or concerns at 329-4455.
