Change in parking policy recommended

A study group appointed to revive the Tar River University Neighborhood recommended its first change in city policy Tuesday, suggesting that all on-street parking spaces in the historic college district be permitted to residents only.

While the proposal still has to pass the Greenville City Council and the Parking and Transportation Commission before it becomes law, officials believe that they can have the ordinance approved by the two boards as early as April and on the books before the beginning of East Carolina University’s fall semester.


The new standard was painted Tuesday as an act of compromise that touches on almost all areas of parking misconduct in the university area, clamping down on the student renters and commuters who abuse existing city regulations by parking on front and rear lawns and in zones where permits are required.

What happens if

a resident has a gathering of friends such as book club, garden club, committee meetings and such at their homes. Where do those people park. Having to deal with another set of rules lowers property values greatly. I moved from that area because of the growing list of compliance measures being enacted. Would "never" live there again. What happened to getting along with ones neighbors? Some of these people seem unable to compromise.

This is asinine...what about

faculty who park in the area because they don't desire to pay the bigh $$$ for a "hunting license" for a parking place? Geez

please help

Mr/Ms Jamison: please tell us what really happened at the meeting.

Meeting details = Minus Report Brown's Negative Embellishments

To find out what actually happened at the meeting, you have to subtract , reporter Brown's usual negative embellishments & inaccuracies , and divide by 3.
